Planned Maintenance – Network Capacity (January-February 2019)


By Dan Miller on 21st January, 2019.

We are updating network configuration to optimise traffic flows for storage replication, backups and facilitate enhanced cross-site networking.

Site: All Sites
Dates: Tuesday 29th January 2019
Wednesday 30th January 2019
Tuesday 5th February 2019
Wednesday 6th February 2019
Tuesday 12th February 2019
Wednesday 13th February 2019
Time: Between 1800 and 2200 GMT
Works: Network Configuration Maintenance

We will be completing works over the course of these evenings and will send notifications when changes commence & complete on those evenings.

What are we doing?

We are updating configurations across our core network to enable larger packet traffic between sites. This is to optimise traffic flows of storage replication, backups and will facilitate enhanced cross-site networking.

What does this mean to you?

These windows should be considered at-risk only. The planned deployment involves making changes to one side of redundant pairs at a time. The planned changes are not anticipated to cause any issues and customer access/virtual machines should be accessible throughout.

Due to the nature of network changes, you may see occasional packet latency as traffic dynamically routes over the resilient section of the network. This should not affect applications and services.
