Hosted Infrastructure Maintenance, scheduled 2 weeks ago

Dear Customer,

Please be aware that there are two separate periods of essential maintenance due to take place on our hosted infrastructure next week. This work is being undertaken as part of the remediation plan following the recent service interruptions experienced by our hosted customers at the beginning of the month.

The maintenance will take place on consecutive days starting with Wednesday 29th July 00:01 – 02:00 and the second on Thursday 30th July 00:01 – 02:00. During these times Advanced will be performing software upgrades to the network switches that were impacted during the incidents that occurred on the 6th and 9th of July and during each window your hosted service will be unavailable.

Please be re assured by the fact that we are undertaking the maintenance at this time to reduce any additional risk to your services and will have the necessary resources from Advanced available to react immediately in the event of any unforeseen issues.
