Maintenance Type: Network Component Upgrade
Start time: 02/05/15 9:00 PM EST

Potential Impact: Brief periods of potential network connectivity instability

On Thursday February 5, 2015 beginning at 9:00 PM EST we will be upgrading some network hardware.  The maintenance period will conclude at 2:00 AM EST on Friday February 6, 2015. During this 5 hour period you may notice short periods of less than 3 minutes where your email and web services may be inaccessible. While we try in most cases to ensure that maintenance does not interfere with your services, in this case it is simply not possible to completely eliminate some connectivity issues during the maintenance period.  
Please note that your services will not be inaccessible for 5 hours, but rather for just a few minutes during this 5 hour period. At no point in time will the server be down, nor is there any reason for additional concern about your data, we are simply making changes in order to bring greater stability, redundancy and speed to our network.

For the vast majority of customers there will be no detectable interruption at all, and for those that do experience some, it will take place at what we know to be one of the lowest points in network traffic during the week. We thank you for trust in us, and for your support of Backland Communications.
