Huge Maintenance Cycle Announcement

Filed under: Alerts,Offsite Backups — vlad @ 1:33 pm

Three times a year Own Web Now Corp conducts a global network maintenance cycle. These maintenance cycles are meant to double-check the equipment, swap out aging infrastructure, improve cable management as execute a disaster recovery procedures. In plain terms, we take the network down at an announced time and work on it during off-peak hours so it doesn’t crash unannounced in the middle of the day.

Our global network maintenance cycle is scheduled for this Sunday, September 23, 2 AM – 5 AM Central (GMT -5).

All networks, all services, all customers will be affected. We will literally be shutting the NOC down and restarting it from scratch.

We will also have a minor ExchangeDefender Policy Engine upgrade during Saturday afternoon, the services should not be affected beyond perhaps a few minutes without control panels while we swap out the switches and nodes.
