DreamObjects Maintenance

Our Systems Engineering team will be performing maintenance on our DreamObjects service from Wednesday, May 22nd through Friday, May 31st. During this maintenance period you may intermittently experience degraded performance. The purpose of this maintenance is to implement key upgrades to Ceph, the underlying storage system which powers DreamObjects. As a result of the upgrades our development team will be able to provide some exciting new features, including CNAME support, in the near future. While we anticipate slower than normal speeds when storing or retrieving objects, please rest assured that your data is safe and will not be affected.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate contact support for assistance.

I’m happy to report that all the upgrade ran without a hitch and is now complete! The team is still doing some clean up, “scrubbing” in Ceph terminology. This process will take some time but should not greatly affect performance.
