Maintenance Notification

Scheduled Maintenance Notification - Facilities
IP ADDRESS BLOCKS REVISED ROUTING (Low Risk)

 

Dear Valued Customer,

From time to time we must perform maintenance on the FTP TODAY infrastructure. During the window below, FTP TODAY will be performing maintenance on the following component(s):

  Dates: 2014-08-01  
  Start Time (EST): 22:00:00  
  End Time (EST): 22:15:00 - 23:00:00  
  Data Center(s): Peak 10 CIN1, Peak 10 LOU3  
  Component(s): BGP broadcast of IP Address Blocks  
  Impact: Low  

FTP TODAY has completed a full migration of its hosting infrastructure from the Peak 10 CIN1 data center to the Peak 10 LOU3 data center. This involved moving all public IP addresses and customer data to a new VMware Enterprise Cloud in LOU3. A temporary Ethernet Private Line, acting as a network bridge from LOU3 to CIN1, has allowed FTP TODAY to continue using Henderson, Nevada as the Internet gateway for all FTP TODAY IP addresses.

The final step in the migration process will be to change the live Internet gateway for all FTP TODAY IP addresses to Louisville, Kentucky. This has been scheduled for after hours so as to have minimal impact on FTP TODAY customer Internet traffic. Downtime is expected to be minimal while the IP address blocks are re-routed to FTP TODAY's Louisville Firewalls.

NO CUSTOMER FTP SITE IP ADDRESS WILL BE CHANGED. NO SIGNIFICANT INTERRUPTION OF INTERNET TRAFFIC IS EXPECTED.

FTP TODAY Support will be kept informed of the progress during the maintenance. If you require further information, progress will be posted on the FTP TODAY Support Center.

Sincerely,

The FTP TODAY Support Team.
