Hosting cluster system maintenance

Update: This maintenance is complete.

Tonight beginning at 10 PM PST we will be upgrading systems in our hosting cluster.  This process should not impact sites reachability, however if there is any downtime we expect it to be brief, and we expect to complete this maintenance within 2 hours.

System Maintenance – OpenVPN Service

Update: Maintenance complete.

Tonight, June 8th, at 10:30pm, System Operations will be adding additional capacity to our OpenVPN (ovpn.sonic.net) cluster. This may briefly take the service offline. We will be monitoring carefully and anticipate all work to be complete by 11pm.
