Rackspace will be closing its oldest data center, DFW1, and will be physically migrating all devices hosted there to their new DFW3 facility. Strangecode’s main firewall is located at DFW1 and will be subject to the migration. Because this firewall is the public network termination point for most of our web and email services, these services will be impacted during the migration period.
An eight-hour maintenance window has been scheduled for the migration:
- Start time: Saturday, June 2, at 23:00 CT
- End time: Sunday, June 3, at 07:00 CT
For more information on the DFW1 migration see here.
While we can’t avoid this disruptive migration entirely, we will avoid downtime of some of our critical services by rerouting access through a different network. We will update this post with more information as we progress.Update 2018-06-03 00:53: the migration has completed with a total downtime of 1h35m.
