View Full Version : Critical Maintenance Tonight

04-02-2009, 12:20 AM
VOIPo will be performing emergency maintenance tonight from approximately 1AM to 3AM Central Time.

What We're Doing

First, we will be mirroring some primary core equipment into our new Dallas datacenter with what's in our current datacenter. We announced this upcoming move several months ago, but have decided to expedite it.

This week we've had several cases of huge spikes in network traffic potentially from DDOS attacks and these have caused a few sporadic issues with network latency. In the new facility, we have much better access to more powerful firewalls and better overall network management functionality to mitigate these attacks before they impact service.

We're also doubling the processing power on all servers within our database cluster and mirroring the full cluster in both Dallas datacenters. Overall, this will result in an 4 fold capacity increase.


Any service interruptions should be minimal, but service may be intermittent and sporadic for a few minutes at different periods.

vPanel Access

vPanel will be unavailable during the maintenance. It will soon show the following message:

VOIPo is currently performing critical maintenance to introduce new nodes that will add additional capacity and increase network security. Service may be intermittent during this time, but these upgrades are necessary to improve overall stability.


Due to extreme growth, this maintenance is critical to improve overall stability and position us to better handle the current load. With these changes, our systems will all be very underloaded which is a good thing for service levels.

It is not necessary to contact support to report issues you have during this maintenance window. We will update this post when it is complete.
