Notice of Scheduled Hosting Downtime
As part of our ongoing program towards ensuring the best service for our hosting customers, we are migrating all existing hardware from the Equinix SY1 facility in Mascot to the brand new Equinix SY3 facility nearby in Alexandria. We’ll be taking advantage of this $90 million dollar-plus facility to upgrade all aspects of our Sydney-based systems: more space, increased bandwidth, better power availability and stronger climate control.
The move is scheduled from 5pm to 9pm AEDT on Sunday the 9th of December 2012. During this time, we expect that all services will be unavailable for up to 4 hours. This includes web hosting, email hosting, Zimbra accounts, virtual private servers, colocated servers and offsite backups. DNS hosting will continue at reduced capacity for those domains that are delegated to at least three Sol1 nameservers.
If you’re not sure how the outage impacts you and would like clarification, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know as soon as possible. During the move, we’ll post regular updates on our Twitter feed (@sol1au).
