SmartDC maintenance on Tuesday April 23rd, 2013

04/19/2013 | News |

Dear Customer,

We would like to announce a maintenance program of datacenter SmartDC on Tuesday April 23rd, 2013. SmartDC will perform maintenance on one of their Core routers in Suite 2 and Suite 0.

New linecard
The network engineers will add new blade to the BR2 router and move several connections to the new blade to free space on the old blades for trunking and to take load away from old blades.

Service impact
SmartDC will do controlled failover with VRRP-e to shift all traffic away gracefully from the affected router during the maintenance. This means there will be no downtime. There is a tiny risk that the failover fails, this will cause a possible downtime of max 5 minutes during the switch. 

Maintenance window
The maintenance window is on Tuesday April 23rd and starts at 03:00 CEST and ends at 06:00 CEST.

Should you have any questions regarding this maintenance of SmartDC please open a ticket or send an e-mail to

Best Regards,
The Team
