Description:
The data centre owners are performing essential maintenance works to improve network stability and reliability. They have taken all necessary steps to ensure that only a minor interruption to services will be experienced as BGP convergence takes effect. This will ensure that Internet services are routed over an alternative path while their service partner carries out the essential maintenance.

Outage risk:
There will be a disruption of services not exceeding 5 minutes. The data centre employ multiple levels of resilience throughout their network infrastructure, however in the unlikely event of unforeseen circumstances a subset of services may be affected by these emergency works during the above maintenance window.

Both the data centre owners and their service partners’ engineering team will be closely monitoring all systems and services, as well as the above, to ensure any disruption is as brief as possible if experienced.
