Extended: Cloud Compute Nodes: Security Updates to Address Foreshadow/L1TF Vulnerabilities, scheduled 4 years ago

Due to unexpected issues caused by the BMC controller of our cloud compute nodes, we have to extend the maintenance window by 24 hours (until Friday 2018-08-31 22:00 CEST).

Date / Time
Thursday 2018-08-30, 18:00 CEST to Friday 2018-08-31 22:00 CEST

Expected Impact
Thanks to the redundant setup no impact is expected. Already running virtual servers are not affected by this work as they will be live-migrated to other compute nodes prior to the installation of the updates. The network infrastructure is not changed during this upgrade and no network connectivity issues are expected.

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