Our Maidenhead datacentre is undergoing major electrical infrastructure upgrades which will affect our services in the following ways:
Sunday 31st January, Afternoon. We will be powering down all our equipment in order to move on to temporary power feeds. There will be a period of up to 30 minutes where our services in Maidenhead will be offline.
Saturday 6th February, Afternoon: Power at risk as the datacentre replace our original power feeds - We will be running on the temporary power feeds during this work so service should be unaffected.
Sunday 7th February, Afternoon: We will be powering down all our equipment again in order to move on to the new power feeds. Similar to the work on 31st January there will be a period of up to 30 minutes where our services in Maidenhead will be offline.
Services that will be affected when power is moved between feeds:
Access to the Control Page,
Dedicated servers we host for customer (collocation),
Web pages we host for customers
This work has been completed with much less disruption than anticipated; we were able to move the power of most devices without the loss of power. A couple of single-PSU devices did lose power for a few minutes.
