Our engineers have been hard at work with revamping our internal networking to better keep up with our users' increasing demands. This resulted in building a completely new and much improved network backbone, and the time has come to transfer over our internal networking to it.
Although users will be able to immediately enjoy drastically lowered latencies and higher throughputs between all European data centers, this is mostly a "behind the scenes"-upgrade that will be surfaced as part of several upcoming product announcements.
Please note that while the maintenance is on-going, the control panel and API might be non-responsive. We don’t expect significant disruptions for our users, but there is a slight possibility of intermittent network outages between 1-5 minutes.
