Scheduled Maintenance

Post by Fragnader » Wed Oct 15, 2008 11:31 pm

We are pleased to inform you that we will be installing new hardware on the core switches that are used by the webserver that hosts your account. In order for these upgrades to be performed the server will be disconnected from the Internet for approximately one hour. Due to the magnitude of the upgrades which will occur across all core switches, altering the underlying technology that our data center infrastructure is built upon, our normal redundant mechanisms can not be used. The redundant systems have to be concurrently upgraded along with the live systems. Afterwards, you will benefit from increased router capacity across our whole network and infrastructure. The upgrade can take up to an hour and will occur on October 24, 2008, sometime between 12 am and 6 am Central Time. During this upgrade, your website will not be online for approximately one hour. Writing and editing of files in your web space will not be possible. Please be sure to make any changes to your web space before October 24, 2008. Depending on how frequently your site is updated, you may find it useful to post a notice on your website telling visitors or to inform web-based application users that your site or service will not be available during this time.
Core switches eh....

I know what core switches are, I've been studying networking for about 1.5 years now in college...
IMO: You won't notice a speed increase....

They said they were adding new hardware onto the core switches. That could mean a million things. Maybe just increasing their capacity.
