Hello!

We are scheduling a maintenance window for the R1 server on Saturday, September 23rd at 10 PM ET [GMT-4] to move the server to our new storage platform. We are scheduling this window from 10 PM ET to 2 AM ET and we expect the downtime related to this maintenance to 30 to 45 minutes.  We are scheduling a longer maintenance window than we expect this to take go give us time to resolve any potentially unforeseen issues.  We have, at this point, migrated numerous servers without issues so we really do expect the maintenance to be less than 45 minutes.

We will be keeping this thread here on our forums up-to-date as we perform the migration and will answer any and all questions you may have about the migration process here or directly in response to the email I will be sending out shortly to all affected clients.

While we do apologize for the necessity of this maintenance window we are sure that you will be happy with the end result.

Should you wish to see more details on why we're performing these migrations as well as some graphs illustrating the performance gains - they can be seen here.

The server is back online.  It took a bit longer then the others as the network did not come up as expected.
