Power Maintenance (Resolved)
  • Priority - Low
  • Affecting Server - Titanium
  • On 21st June from 09:00 to 17:00 BST engineers are performing maintenance to an STS power switch system that supplies a proportion of our Reading data centre.

    During the window it will be put into maintenance bypass. Services will still be protected by the A side UPS system but unable to transfer to the B side UPS system.

    No interruption is anticipated but it is an ‘at risk’ period with reduced level of redundancy.

Network Maintenance (Resolved)
  • Priority - Low
  • Affecting Other - Network
  • On May 8th 2017 between 0100 and 0400 UTC (0200 to 0500 BST) one of our Internet Transit suppliers will be performing maintenance in their network to update software on their equipment. During this time traffic between our network and some parts of the Internet may take different paths which may have higher latency. We expect that this will have no impact on the vast majority of customers and there will be ample spare capacity elsewhere within our network in the event of this connection becoming unavailable.
