The backup servers are currently going in to maintenance mode to safely shut them down.
Posted Sep 14, 2021 - 09:20 AEST
Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure all of our services are operating and maintained to our standards, we will be migrating some of our backup servers to the new, state of the art Equinix ME2 Data Centre. Servers are being relocated to ensure continued geographic separation of backups from production workloads.
Note: This maintenance will not cause downtime to your production environments/workloads. Please be aware that during this maintenance backups will not be taken for your service and the backup servers will be inaccessible.
As such, we advise against making any major changes to your infrastructure as recovery will not be possible until the servers are back online. If you have any planned changes scheduled, we recommend that you make local backups at your discretion.
This migration will commence at 09:00 am AEST, and is estimated to take up to 24-36 hours to complete. Extended downtime is expected as the servers are being physically moved; however, our teams will always endeavour to minimise any downtime during the process.
This maintenance affects backup servers for the following platforms: * VPS Hosting * Shared Hosting * Reseller Hosting
