Greetings, This is take-2 on this. Apologies for the short notice.
As some may be aware, we are currently working with Rackspace to upgrade the PostgreSQL infrastructure systems which they graciously host for us. As part of these upgrades there will be downtime for systems hosted there. To facilitate the migration of systems, Rackspace is upgrading the switching infrastructure to Gigabit (from 100Mbps). This upgrade will happen on Tuesday, April 29th (today, for most of the world), between 2100-2200 UTC (5pm-6pm US/Eastern). We hope the downtime will be minimal but the window allows for up to 1 hour. To be clear- this is ~4 hours from the time of this email. This downtime will impact all systems hosted @ Rackspace as they are upgrading the switch for us. End-user services which will be impacted include: yum.postgresql.org wiki.postgresql.org git master server (Committers only) planet.postgresql.org www.pgadmin.org, ftp.pgadmin.org media.postgresql.org commitfest.postgresql.org developer.postgresql.org (Developer personal homepages) redmine.postgresql.org jdbc.postgresql.org postgresopen.org developer.pgadmin.org (sandbox, Jenkins) babel.postgresql.org (Translation services) Redundant services (minimal impact expected): ns2.postgresql.org (other nameservers will still work) .us inbound mail relay (other MXs will still work) .us website front-end (should be removed from pool) FTP mirror (should be removed from pool) We anticipate this being the only whole-environment outage during this migration. Future outages will happen for individual systems as we migrate them to the new hardware. Thanks! Stephen
