Emergency maintenance - service affecting [RESOLVED]

We need to perform some emergency maintenance today. This will affect the following services:

1 of 3 primary nameservers will also be offline during this time. There should be no service impact.

Access to email will be unavailable for some customers and some database services will be affected.

Some customer VMs will also be affected - these customers have been notified directly.

We'll begin this outage as soon as possible (organising datacentre hands now), and expect to be finished within an hour.

MSO: Several Services Affected [Resolved]

From 16:23 until 17:03 there was an outage which affected several of our datacentre services. VOIP, some web and email services are know to have been affected. Unfortunately this also took down our phone systems, resulting in calls being diverted to staff mobiles. Cause: one of our virtualisation head units rebooted unexpectedly, taking down all related services. We are still investigating the cause. All services are now back online. If you are still experiencing any issues, please contact support@gladserv.com or call 0131 510 0340.

Server Maintenance This Weekend

We will be conducting some server and network maintenance this weekend, on Sunday 9th November 2014 between 1500-1900 hrs GMT. There may be some distruptions to our shared hosting platform, email services and some customer servers during this period. We will try to keep any downtime to a minimum. We apologise for the short notice, but these are urgent datacentre works which are outside our control. We will update this blog with any relevant info.
