BudgetVM / Enzu Dallas Migration

I just got this in my email:

We are happy to announce that we will be migrating all servers in our Dallas location to an upgraded facility. The migration will take approx. 45 minutes per server group. We will move only a small number of nodes at any one time to prevent a large simultaneous outage and allow for troubleshooting of a small pool of servers if needed.

With this upgrade we are happy to report that, our customers will enjoy an upgraded hosting experience. Our new facility will feature several enhancements including redundant power and network improvements within the Infomart datacenter. These new features will be provided at no additional cost to you. At BudgetVM, we are investing a great deal of resources into improving our infrastructure to better serve our customers.

This maintenance window will begin at 2000 EST on October 18th and continue through 0100EST on October 19th.

We will ensure a graceful shutdown of all nodes to ensure the integrity of any data at that time. We will also be taking this opporunity to introduce software upgrades and security improvements on the nodes themselves.

If you have any questions regarding this migration please let us know. We thank you for your business and look forward to serving you on our improved infrastructure!

One additional notice will be sent on October 18th once the maintenance begins as well as when it completes.
