2019/02/05 – Extended Downtime – Database Maintenance

Due to essential database maintenance that needs to occur on the Tranquility cluster, daily downtime will be extended tomorrow and will run for a total of 60 minutes.

This downtime extension is required because we need to perform a cold restart of the entire Tranquility cluster – quite literally a request from our friends at Microsoft to turn the universe off and on again!

Downtime will begin at the usual time of 11:00 UTC, and will run through until 12:00 UTC, when we expect the cluster to be back online and accepting connections.

Apologies for any inconvenience that this downtime extension may cause. We’ll have the cluster back up and running for you all as soon as we can!

As always, you can follow @EVE_Status on twitter for updates on Tranquility, including any server issues or downtime extensions that may be required.
