REASON: Database Update
PLANNED DURATION: 10 minutes
All website visitors will see an unbranded page letting them know that essential maintenance is underway and that they should return later. Site Leaders will not be able to login to their sites.
The result of this maintenance should improve database read and write times which will mean faster loading of websites. This is part of our on-going plan to improve the performance and the scalability of our system. As always, we plan to minimise the disruption caused to our customers but these maintenance windows are essential for the long term stability of our system.
