As part of our continued efforts to improve our cloud services, on Tuesday December 9th from 10am to Wednesday December 10th 10am, our Systems Engineering team will be performing maintenance on our DreamObjects service. During this maintenance window, you may intermittently experience slower upload and access speeds and some short periods of connectivity loss. Please rest assured that your data is safe and will not be affected.
The purpose of this maintenance is to update the configuration of Ceph, the underlying storage technology powering DreamObjects. The team is making the configuration change to prepare the cluster for additional capacity. The change will trigger the cluster to re-optimize the arrangement of its data and is likely to cause inconsistent availability. The bulk of the optimization will complete within the first few hours and will diminish throughout the day.
We will closely monitor the maintenance and will be posting periodic updates. This maintenance window only affects DreamObjects.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact support for assistance.

Update: We decided to postpone the originally scheduled maintenance from Dec. 2nd until Dec. 9th.
