    I got 2 emails about possible downtime tomorrow.

    Subject: Network Maintenance - Chicago, IL - September 25th, 2012 - 11:00PM-07:00AM CDT

    Type: Maintenance

    Severity: Critical

    Affected Zone: Chicago:Dupont Fabros

    Please note that all devices located in this zone may be impacted

    Time Frame

    Start Time: 09-25-2012 11:00 PM

    End Time: 09-26-2012 7:00 AM

    Engineers will be on site in the CHI1 datacenter located in Chicago, Illinois performing network maintenance during the above time window, specified in central daylight time (CDT).

    Our team is working to perform a network refresh with new equipment which will facilitate additional network capabilities and aggregate throughput. This maintenance will occur in two phases, each explained below.

    Phase one is a transition of the core and distribution layer network devices from their existing configurations. During this time, there will be service interruption for all customers in the CHI1 datacenter. In addition, the website and customer portal system will be effected by this interruption. This maintenance is fully scripted. While the window itself is multiple hours, total downtime is anticipated to be less than 30 minutes. Cabinet level customers will only be effected by this first phase.

    Phase two is a transition of access layer equipment in shared cabinets (dedicated servers, single / small colocation environments). Each cabinet will be provided with a separate maintenance window apart from this notice. This is fully scripted and downtime is anticipated to be less than 30 minutes for any single device.
