2/3/2007, Saturday, 12:00pm(midnight) - 2/4/2007, Sunday, 6:00am EST - Linuxwebnet (Epoch, Baltimore) - we will be migrating your servers from the old Velocity Server Data Center to the DataPoint Data Center. The DataPoint Data Center is a carrier class facility that is staffed on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It includes additional storage facilities, a more redundant network, and increased bandwidth capacity. On Saturday February 3rd between midnight EST and 6am Sunday morning we will be powering down your equipment and transferring it to the new Data Center. The new data center is only 15 minutes from the current data center, and we believe this will assist in making the migration move quickly. We are striving to have each server down for less then 2 hours. Your IP addresses and DNS will not change when moving to the new Data Center.
10/27/2006, Tuesday, 2:00am - 3:00am EST - Colosolutions (Level 3, Orlando) - During this maintenance window, we will be bringing up a 100 Meg Time Warner link as an additional carrier in our blended bandwidth service offering. Silver and Gold Bandwidth customers may experience routing fluctuations as our routers recalculate the best possible routes. This is expected to create a slow-down for a moment in time but not an outage. The delays may last from 1 to 5 minutes.
6/6/2006, Tuesday, 5:30pm - 10:30pm EST - Colosolutions (Level 3, Orlando) - Utility power to the building will be shut down on Tuesday, June 6, from 5:30pm to 10:30pm while OUC performs the power upgrades to the building. Colo Solutions will be transferring the load to the generator prior to the service window, to eliminate any potential issues when OUC shuts down the utility power to the building. As another layer of protection, Colo Solutions has arranged to have a representative, from our generator maintenance company, on site during the entire service window to monitor and immediately respond to any unforeseen generator issues. This work is not expected to affect your service, as we utilize the generator backup, but we urge you to take any necessary precautions.
5/16/2006, Tuesday, 7:30am - 9:00am EST - Colosolutions (Level 3, Orlando) - During this maintenance window, Orlando Utility Commission (OUC), the building Electric Utility will be conducting a test on one of the building transformers that supplies power to the building. As a result we anticipate some utility power loss to the Data Center. We will be starting the generator and transferring the load to it prior to the testing and don't anticipate any power interruption.
Thursday, 4/20/2006, 9am EST 12pm(noon) EST - Colosolutions (Level 3, Orlando) - "We have been notified by Eaton (PowerWare) maker of our new 120KVA UPS that they have a recall on the 9390 control board. During this maintenance window, a PowerWare Engineer will be replacing the recalled control board. In order to replace the control board the UPS has to be placed in maintenance bypass mode and turn off. By placing the UPS in maintenance bypass mode the power will be unconditioned and unprotected by the UPS, direct feed from the utility (OUC). As a precautionary measure and since a direct utility feed can be inconsistent, the Colo Solutions team has decided to supply the utility feed with the Generator vs. OUC. The Generator power is more consistent and stable than the utility. The utility feed will also be available in the event there is or become any issues with the Generator. Although we don't anticipate any power loss or service interruptions, the Colo Solutions Service and Support team will be closely monitoring your service(s) to ensure that this planned maintenance causes as little interruptions to your service(s) as possible."
