We have been closely monitoring the operational status of our new data centre and we now feel confident to state that the infrastructure update has been completed successfully. This infrastructure update included several upgrades and changes to further future-proof our products and services:
- Upgraded all hardware to the latest models, including deprecating our Intel Xeon v2-generation CPU's and replaced them with Intel Xeon E5-2687W v4
- All new 40 Gbit Ethernet network backbone
- Significantly improved internet connectivity with dedicated fiber / WDM links between our European data centers, to reduce latencies and boost throughput even further
- New software and technology stack for our computing nodes, in preparation for new features currently in development
- A much more streamlined and flexible environment overall, allowing us to keep growing and improving at a fast pace
We are now at the final step of the migration to our new London data center! To finalize everything, we will be conducting some necessary network maintenance that will take place 2017-09-06 at 10:00 PM UTC and last for approx. 1 hour. During this maintenance, a brief loss of network connectivity (1-2 min) could occur but we are aiming to keep them unnoticeable to all users.
The migrations of cloud servers has been progressing without any incidents, with approximately 75% of all cloud servers migrated thus far. We expect the migration to continue successfully, as planned and according to schedule.

Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.

We will shortly begin a significant infrastructural update, which includes launching a new datacenter in London, UK, starting tomorrow evening: 2017-08-03 at 21:00 UTC.
This new datacenter is much better equipped to facilitate our accelerated growth, and our increasingly high demands for performance and reliability. It will completely replace our current London DC and inherit its designation as UK-LON1. We will therefore migrate all cloud servers in our current London DC to this new location.
To make this migration seamless for our users, we have developed technology that allows migrations over long distances without affecting a cloud server's operational status. We only anticipate a brief (5-60 sec) network interruption during the actual migration but as an extra precaution, we will only schedule migrations during non-business hours.
As the schedule is rolling, we cannot estimate when a specific cloud server will be migrated or when the migration is entirely completed. We will update this status page whenever we have any news to share.
