UK - London hardware upgrades

Starting 2020-09-01, we will be upgrading cloud servers in our uk-lon1 location to faster hardware in uk-lon2. We will decipher the most suitable 'off-peak' period per cloud server based on historic usage patterns, then migrate the data during this timeframe. If you have a more suitable or preferred date/time, please contact technical support who will happily arrange this for you. We anticipate a downtime between 5-60 minutes per cloud server, dependent on the amount of data stored. No end-user changes are necessary. We thank you for your patience and hope you enjoy the upgrade!

UK - London, Reading, Maidenhead & Coventry uk-cov1 network performance degradation

We are experiencing a network performance degradation for some servers at our uk-cov1 location. We are investigating the cause.

  • Following a process of elimination, we were able to identify a network switch as the root cause. The switch chip (ASIC) is intermittently dropping a selection of "jumbo frame" packets when certain configuration conditions are met. We were able to rework our configuration to avoid this issue at 05:50 UTC. We have notified the equipment vendor. This switch is part of a new rack deployment which affected only two host nodes carrying three virtual servers. Nonetheless, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
