Scheduled downtime on October 22, 2008
« on: October 15, 2008, 02:00:50 PM »
I just got an e-mail from 1&1 hosting regarding some scheduled maintenance.  Rather than attempting to summarize it I'm going to just copy and paste the relevant portion here:

Quote
We are pleased to inform you that we will be installing new
hardware on the core switches that are used by the webserver
that hosts your account.  In order for these upgrades to
be performed the server will be disconnected from the Internet
for approximately one hour.

Due to the magnitude of the upgrades which will occur across
all core switches, altering the underlying technology that our
data center infrastructure is built upon, our normal redundant
mechanisms can not be used. The redundant systems have to be
concurrently upgraded along with the live systems.

Afterwards, you will benefit from increased router capacity
across our whole network and infrastructure.

The upgrade can take up to an hour and will occur on October 22,
2008, sometime between 12 am and 6 am Central Time.

[...]

During this upgrade, your website will not be online for
approximately one hour. Writing and editing of files in your web
space will not be possible.

Please be sure to make any changes to your web space before
October 22, 2008. Depending on how frequently your site is updated,
you may find it useful to post a notice on your website telling
visitors or to inform web-based application users that your
site or service will not be available during this time.

So there you have it.  Don't be too surprised if we have an outage that day. ;)
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
