I am pleased to inform you that due to Aleyant's continued growth we will be performing a significant hardware and network upgrade on Saturday night, starting at 11pm Central Time (Chicago). In this upgrade, we will be replacing our server hardware, network switches, firewall, and storage system. We are also increasing our network bandwidth.
Unfortunately this upgrade will involve some downtime. We anticipate the outage will take between 3 and 4 hours. Over the last 3 months we have been working closely with our data center to make sure this upgrade is as seamless as possible. After the upgrade we will perform extensive testing. I do encourage you to test your sites on Sunday and report any issues immediately to us. Please note this upgrade will not effect customers using our Singapore hosting instance.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or or concerns you may have.
President, Aleyant Systems
PS - For those of you who are interested, our new hosting solution is a full Private Cloud using VMWare. This hybrid solution allows us to utilize the benefits of cloud computing within our own privately controlled hardware, thus providing greater consistency in performance.
