We will be performing a critical maintenance on Friday November 4th, 2011. Because of this maintenance’s scope, this process is different than our usual process for routine maintenance windows.
This maintenance will begin on Friday, November 4th at 10:00 PM CDT (4:00 AM BST) and complete on Saturday, November 5th at 6:00 AM CDT (12:00 PM BST).
The maintenance will impact customers utilizing Cloud Servers, Cloud Files and Cloud Sites.
During the maintenance window, we will be performing an upgrade to our entire Cloud infrastructure. Please note that throughout this time there will be no access to your Control Panel or the Cloud API.
Multiple systems within our infrastructure, including internal support tools, will also be affected. As a result of these infrastructure improvements, our ability to provide support will be limited until maintenance completion. We do not expect this update to result in any downtime to the Rackspace Cloud production environment, only to the management tools and API.
For real-time updates please visit the Rackspace Cloud Status page.
If you have any further questions concerning this maintenance, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our support team, via chat or via ticket.
Rackspace Cloud: Last week we formally launched Cloud Servers for Windows and opened the doors for new customers. We only released Cloud Servers for Windows after a successful, strenuous beta program that thoroughly tested the product. Over two thousand customers, just like you, provided critical feedback that our developers expertly addressed. This feedback loop ensured that we had the right features in place and allows us to back our Windows offering with an industry leading SLA.
If you’re a .NET developer, small-to-medium sized business, or IT administrator, spinning up new servers takes little time and cost as little as $0.08 per hour. Watch a quick video to see how easy it is to create a Windows Cloud Server.
You can learn more about Cloud Servers for Windows, including pricing information, online at our website.
