Scheduled Datacentre Network Maintenance (Scheduled)
  • Priority - High
  • Affecting System - Datacentre MTH-2 & MTH-3
  • Good Afternoon, 

     

    As part of our commitment to maintain a high standard of service, MTH and our datacentre partners are instigating a major hardware and architecture upgrade to our core network infrastructure.

    Over the past year the teams have been working tirelessly to build a brand-new core network based on SDN technology, separating L2 and L3 infrastructure and using new best-of-breed Juniper hardware. This represents a great investment by MTH and our datacentre partners into building a world-class network to support our customers' future growth, and is also in part a response to the issues with longer-than-anticipated re-convergence times following network disturbances and fibre breaks.
    Having been through extensive testing, the upgrade is now ready to be installed. The commissioning process involves moving physical fibre links, which means there will be an interruption to services during the following maintenance windows:

     

    We will be using the below window to complete the works on the network upgrade. Please be advised that updates of this window will be posted on our status page:

    MTH-2 and MTH-3 Data Centres, all traffic
    This is a contingency-only window, scheduled to accommodate any complications during the previous maintenance window.

    This upgrade work is the culmination of extensive research, planning and financial investment, and I'm proud to announce that the new network is ready for installation and commissioning. If you have any questions about the nature of the work or would like more information, please get in touch with us.

     

    Kind Regards,

     

    Your MTH Team
