EU1.AMS – Network upgrade and maintenance scheduled
From January 21 to January 24, 2020, our engineers will replace and upgrade network equipment in one of the most popular locations – EU1.AMS.
Our site EU1.AMS – was the first in the European Union, located in two independent data centers in the Netherlands. In order to further capacity upgrades and provide new services, we schedule to replace all the “top of the rack” switches with new Juniper EX devices, providing increased reliability, performance and availability of services. As a result of the upgrade, each rack in which about 50 servers are located will have two independent, duplicated external channels to the backbone network at speeds from 20 to 40 gigabits per second.
We also plan to add additional Juniper MX routers to connect even more external channels and IP connections with traffic exchange points and IP-transit operators.
During the maintenance no noticeable interruptions in the provision of services are expected, however, at the time of switching ports of dedicated servers and VDS nodes, some packet loss or increased data transmission delays of 30-60 seconds are possible.
If you have a question about the planned upgrade and maintenance, we ask to contact our technical support team for advice and clarifications. We will be happy to answer your questions!
