On Tuesday, May 23rd starting at 9pm PDT, we will be upgrading OpenStack, the underlying software powering DreamCompute, to the Newton release. The new version includes an updated user interface with a refined launch instance flow and modernized appearance.
Access to the APIs, the DreamCompute dashboard, and booting new instances will be temporarily inaccessible during the upgrade. However, your existing instances will remain running and accessible.
We don’t expect the upgrade process itself to take the entire maintenance window, but we are leaving ample time for monitoring and testing.
