[Complete] NCI node short rolling outages Jan 12, 2016, 9:00am-5:00pm AEDT

Please be aware there will be scheduled rolling outages in the NCI availability zone of the NeCTAR Research Cloud:

Duration: 10 to 15 minutes per hypervisor

Start Time: 9:00am AEDT Tue Jan 12th 2016

End Time: 5:00pm AEDT Tue Jan 12th 2016

To increase capacity the NCI NeCTAR node will be upgrading hypervisor memory on 12th of January 2016.  This will require a rolling outage of approximately ten minutes per hypervisor some time between 9:00am and 5:00pm on Tuesday 12th January 2016.

Each instance can expect an outage of approximately ten minutes.  All active instances will be shut down and restarted by NCI NeCTAR admins, with no user intervention required.

While we do not anticipate any issues, we remind users to update backups of critical data.
