NYC Migration Saturday (Resolved)
Affecting Other - All NY Hosted Services | Priority - High

We will be moving equipment to a new and larger location within the NY datacenter over the next couple Saturdays.  During this time services may be unavailable as equipment is physically moved.  We will resume the services as soon as possible, as they come back online in the new location.
No reboots are expected, but services will be unavaiable during the actual move of the respective machine(s).

UPDATE:  Most all services in NY are back online.  We are working on a couple of remaining items to bring everything up as fast as possible.

All work is complete.  During this move, some backend equipment was also upgraded with new bonded 10Gb uplinks.  enjoy

Level3 Transit (Resolved)
Affecting Other - Subscribers using Level 3 transit | Priority - High

We are investigating a possible service issue with Level 3 in North America.  This issue is affecting subscribers with Internet access providers who use L3 with no other alternatives.

More information will be posted as soon as it is available.

Power issue in NY (Resolved)
Affecting Server - VMM | Priority - Low

We are working to resolve a power distribution issue affecting a limited number of VMs in NY.  The issue is causing CPU modulation, which results in a slow server.

UPDATE:  Engineers are setting up temporary power to bring back full performance while damaged equipment is replaced.

INFO:  A power issue destroyed a PDU, network switch and multiple PSU's in about 5 servers.  The network in this rack switched to a redundant switch and the damaged switch has already been returned to normal service.  We have completed running new (temporary) power and replacing PSU's to restore normal quality of service while a proper repair is completed.

Please let CNS Support know if you are experiencing any issues.

As QoS has been restored, priority of this issue has been reduced.  We do not anticipate any further impact to services.

UPDATE:  Full redundancy restored.  All systems normal

Peering to AMS-IX (Resolved)
Affecting Other - Peering to AMS-IX | Priority - Medium

Peering to AMS-IX has flapped.  This will cause brief connectivity issue for traffic that transits the connection while routes reconverge.  We are investigating the cause.  We will update this notice with more information as soon as a review is complete.


The original notice listed the IX as DE-CIX.  It is actually AMS-IX


We are observing continued instability in the circuit and so the port has been administratively shutdown until the issue is resolved.  Traffic will route around the IX.  No major impact is expected.


The problem circuit has been repared and the network has been normalized.

The circuit vendor has responded they are experiencing a major outage.  We will leave the IX offline until they call all clear.
