Minor Maintenance Window for Membee – 05.01.11

Hi Everyone,

It’s Spring time and along with that, comes a little sprucing up and that goes for Membee’s data center as well. We’re doing some regular server maintenance by applying operating system and driver updates to the servers. These updates will require the servers to be restarted and as a result we are establishing a maintenance window on Sunday, May 1 from 7 – 8 AM Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -4).

During this hour, access to Membee may be intermittent as the servers restart. We’ll do some testing to make sure Membee is happy when the restarts are completed.

Membee Data Center Power Contingency Exercise Successful

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update to let you know that the power contingency tests in the Membee data center this past Saturday (April 9) were successful and the backup power systems kicked in as advertised when the external utility was disengaged. As anticipated, there was no interruption of service during the exercise. It’s good to know that this is working!

The whole exercise got us thinking so we all went home and pushed the “test” button on our smoke detectors. Have you checked yours lately?
