What: Monthly Microsoft Windows Updates
Start Time: Monday, August 17, 2015 @ 10:00 PM in the Server's Time Zone
End Time: Friday, August 21, 2015 @ 6:00 AM in the Server's Time Zone
Duration: Approximately 30 minutes within the maintenance window
What is being done?
Whenever new Microsoft updates are released, our infrastructure and engineering team analyzes and tests each patch to review the release and determine how we can best keep you updated with minimal restarts.
When updates are implemented, our team will apply the patches within a patch window of 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM in the server's time zone (based on the server zone you have chosen to be in). Since not all servers can be upgraded at the same time, a portion of the servers are upgraded each night over the course of a few consecutive nights during the maintenance window.
This process may extend outside of these dates, such as when large Windows updates are released. In those cases, we will contact customers directly as their server is schedule for updates.
How will this maintenance affect me?
