    Our datacenter host has just notified me that our server will be down for maintenance on October 24th at 10pm.

    The maintenance is scheduled for 2 hours, although at my day job (we use the same vendor) it often takes 10-30 minutes.

    This is something that has to happen to ensure the security of the vendor's datacenter and there is no way to change the timing of this.

    That said, be aware that this is occurring 2 days before the fall expo. Please plan accordingly.

    Do we have a risk mitigation plan if the server does not come back up?

    The level of commerce two days before the swap is similar to Black Friday on amazon.

    A concerned Reefking...
