Scheduled Network Maintenance [04/24/2010] - Global

Recommended Posts

Date: Saturday, April 24th, 2010 (04/24/2010)

Start time: 12:00 AM CDT

End time: 7:00 AM CDT

Duration: 7 hours

Service Affected: Public Network, Private Network

Reason: Network Migration

Location: All Datacenters

==================================================

Datacenter Engineers will be conducting maintenance on the transport gear that provides connectivity between data centers and to peering exchanges. During this maintenance window, traffic will be gracefully shifted to other providers. Engineers will be bringing new backbone routing equipment online in the following locations:

POPS:

LAX - Los Angeles, CA

SJC - San Jose, CA

DEN - Denver, CO

CHI - Chicago, IL

ATL - Atlanta, GA

NYC - New York City, NY

MIA - Miami, FL

Datacenters:

DAL - Dallas, TX

SEA - Seattle, WA

WDC - Washington, DC

In conjunction with bringing this equipment online, Engineers will be turning up new circuits linking these locations together. Transit and peering circuits within each location will also be turned in another maintenance window. During this, customer traffic destined for data centers DAL01, SEA01, and WDC01 will be rerouted either over the public Internet or through other paths for private network connectivity. Datacenter Engineers expect minimal impact to customers as traffic will be shifted prior to the event but some routing anomalies are expected during this process as routes re-converge.

Once completed and circuits verified, service will return to normal.

Again, Datacenter Engineers expect minimal impact to customer services once traffic has been shifted during this maintenance window.
