We will be performing major network upgrades to our backbone network in Paris during the night of 23-24 March 2013.
The purpose of this work is to replace our current (aging) backbone network routers with newer generation equipment allowing for increased capacity, performance and resilience. During this time, all Gandi services in Paris will experience brief periods of network unavailability and/or instability as the migration proceeds.
This activity will not impact the individual Gandi services themselves, but rather only the network connectivity between the internet and those services. As a result, there will be no need for hosting customers to restart their IaaS or PaaS servers/instances. Services in our Baltimore datacentre will not be directly affected by this maintenance, but some periods of routing instability and reconvergence may be experienced, though these will be far less prevalent than for the Paris services.
This migration will commence at 01:30 CET (00:30 GMT) on Sunday 24 March 2013, and we estimate between 10 and 15 minutes of major network outage during the initial migration, followed by a number of brief periods of network instability during the remainder of the migration. The entire migration activity should last approximately 90 minutes, but no more than two hours.
Operations will be ended at 05:00 AM CET (04:00 AM GMT).
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
EDIT 03:08 AM CET : maintenance ended
