Brief Maintenance Window Declared for 12:00 AM EST – 02.11.16

Hi Everyone,

We’re doing a really quick hardware upgrade to our database servers which will require a reboot. You can anticipate a 5 minute outage at some point between 12 AM and 1 AM EST (UTC/GMT -5) on Thursday, February 11th.

Once the servers come back to life, we’ll quickly check everything to make sure all is good. On the off chance that you encounter any issues, let us know right away at support@membee.com.

Thanks!

Membee’s Data Center Maintenance

Hi Everyone,

Data Center Maintenance Window Declared for Oct. 8 at 2:00 AM ET

Here is a brief update from the ongoing investigation into last week’s service interruption. While we plan to provide as much detail as possible once the investigation is completed, at this preliminary point, the issue has been narrowed to new network hardware installed “upstream” from Membee. The hardware was brought online on October 2 and hence created the issue of making it impossible to reach Membee’s servers.

While knowing “what” happened is helpful, we are more interested in “why” it happened and the specific steps the vendors involved are taking to prevent it from happening again. Those answers are yet to come but we have been assured that they will be forthcoming once the investigation is completed.

In the course of the investigation to date, it has been discovered that preventative revisions to the upstream network hardware should be done as a precaution. As a result, a 2-hour maintenance window has been declared in the data center beginning at 2:00 AM ET (UTC -4) on October 8th. For a minute or two at some point during this window, you may experience soon slowness in Membee as the network traffic is rerouted.

These revisions are precautionary but are deemed to be prudent.

Thanks,

Membee Customer Support Team

Service Disruption to Membee

Hi everyone,

The issue has been identified as upstream from the Internet, and likely a denial of service attack that is happening before you reach Membee. Our data center is well aware and is actively working on the issue to identify the source of the attack, and resume services as soon as possible. They have promised us an update within the next 30 minutes and we will pass that update along.
