On Monday, January 14th at 21:00 EST, we will be performing a rolling switch upgrade to multiple pairs of switches in our EWR1 (Parsippany, New Jersey) data center to bring devices into version compliance.
During this maintenance, be advised that connectivity in EWR1 will be intermittently unavailable for up to ten (10) hours and customers may lose connectivity if a reboot is needed. Please note, each switch pair takes approximately two (2) hours to upgrade, so users will not be impacted for the full maintenance window. Customers having dual bonded links to this set of switches should experience very minimal if any outage.
This event will impact multiple racks. The owner of organizations with impacted machines will receive an individual notice, which will include a specific list of affected servers.
Please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions.
