Network Maintenance: Firmware Update on Switches in Region RMA, scheduled 4 weeks ago

On Wednesday evening, 2021-03-24, we will update the firmware of our data center switches in region RMA (R├╝mlang). During this maintenance work you may experience short periods of packet loss (usually just a few seconds) or higher RTTs for connections from and towards the Internet and between virtual servers (even when using the private network interface), as well as short delays for I/O operations to SSD/Bulk volumes and our Object Storage in that specific region.

Date / Time
Wednesday, 2021-03-24, 22:00 to Thursday, 2021-03-25, 01:00 (CET)

Expected Impact
Short periods of packet loss (usually just a few seconds) or higher RTTs for connections towards the Internet and between virtual servers, as well as short I/O delays.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
