We suffer from a DDoS attack on the IaaS Hosting platform on the Paris/FR datacenter.
The technical team is currently mitigating the attach and trying to solve the encountered issue.
4 physical nodes have been impacted by the attack.
UPDATE : End of the issue around 2PM. The technical team did restart the physical nodes and the concerned VMs properly. The attack has been mitigated and is analyzed more precisely now.
UPDATE : a IaaS/PaaS storage unit will be rebooted in the next minutes, for safety reaons because of a few disks which are blocked. The reboot operation will take 20 minutes approximately. there is no need to reboot or stop/start your VPS or SH instance, the I/O will be delayed and will catch up once the filer is restarted. We do the necessary operations on our side. Sorry for the inconvenience this issue may cause to you.
UPDATE : the reboot operation took less than 10 minutes, the I/O recovered within 5 minutes, the operations are still halted but will be restarted in the next minutes once all is clear.
UPDATE : hosting operations are now restarted, the situation is back to normal.
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.
