System Maintenance – Feb 13th, 12AM – 4AM EST
The Rackspace Cloud’s system engineering team will be performing several upgrades to our infrastructure in our Dallas / Fort Worth, TX (DFW) data center to enhance stability and performance. The maintenance is scheduled to last four (4) hours, beginning on the morning of February 13 at 12:00 AM EST and ending at 04:00 AM EST. While connectivity during this window will be intermittent, some sites may be offline for as long as 30 minutes. As always, we will do everything we can to keep the interruptions to an absolute minimum.
Storage Array Maintenance
During this maintenance window we will be performing a series of software upgrades and disk space additions to our storage array to increase capacity, stability, and scalability. These upgrades will also allow us to further optimize our storage array’s performance, equating to faster data load times for your applications and better stability. During the maintenance period you may be unable to access, upload, or make changes to your website content. We will certainly do everything possible to limit the amount of time your account will be affected.
We are doing everything in our power to make sure that these types of upgrades do not have negative effects on the hosting service at VanillaForums.com, including offline backups of our forums, related files, and data. We will be monitoring the services at VanillaForums.com during this downtime to make sure that everything is running as usual when the maintenance is complete.
