2014-03-28: Scheduled Network Maintenance (RESOLVED)

EVENT TYPE: Scheduled Network Maintenance
DATE: 3/28/14 ~ 3/29/14
START: 22:00 hrs PST
FINISH: 02:00 hrs PST
RISK/IMPACT: Service Interrupting

SCOPE: Digital Fortress will be performing a significant upgrade to our core network and blended bandwidth infrastructure at the Tukwila WA site on Friday March 28th beginning at 10:00pm PST (GMT-7) and concluding on Saturday March 29th at 2:00am PST (GMT-7).

Most network services will experience intermittent interruptions during this four (4) hour maintenance window as the core infrastructure is upgraded and re-deployed.  We do not anticipate an individual interruption lasting longer than 30 minutes with possibly a few short interruptions to follow.

Customers with multiple carrier circuits should not be affected, however we recommend that prior to this maintenance you weight your routing to prefer alternate carriers.

Customers using Digital Fortress DNS servers may likewise experience interruption during this period.  It is recommended that you enroll a 3rd party DNS server and set up AFXR to load balance DNS between locations.

We will endeavor to keep all interruption as brief as possible. All times are estimates based on expected outcomes of the work being performed and previous experience performing the same or similar work. There is always the possibility of some unforeseen bug, or problem that could extend the maintenance time.  Administrators will make every effort to correct the problem, or implement the back out plan quickly, if something does occur.

Colocation Customers:  We will be posting updates in our trouble ticket system @, on our website, and via twitter

If continued service disruption is experienced after this period, please contact Digital Fortress COLO support at 206-395-7163 or
