FYI:  There is going to be a maintenance window for the Rackspace Chicago
data center - where our servers are located:

ORD Datacenter- June 20th from 12:01 AM to 4:00 AM CDT

It looks like there is the possibility of some loss of network connectivity
one or more times for a span of time ranging from seconds up to 10 minutes.

Here's the full details from the support ticket:


We want to notify you of an upcoming maintenance on the networking
infrastructure of our Next Gen Cloud Servers product in our LON, DFW
and ORD Datacenters. This maintenance event does not require any
action on your behalf. Please note the following dates and times
associated with this maintenance:

LON Datacenter- June 19th from 12:01 AM to 4:00 AM BST
ORD Datacenter- June 20th from 12:01 AM to 4:00 AM CDT
DFW Datacenter- June 26th from 12:01 AM to 4:00 AM CDT

As a result of this maintenance, your Next Gen Cloud Servers network
connectivity could be interrupted one or more times for a period
ranging from seconds up to 10 minutes. The large time window is in
place to get through the entire infrastructure.  This brief networking
interruption will affect all Next Gen Cloud Servers within these
regions. This includes connectivity from Cloud Servers to the Cloud
Load Balancers, Cloud Networking, Cloud Block Storage services as well
as private server-to-server connectivity.

Additional information will be made available via our status page
during and after the maintenance event at http://status.rackspace.com.

This maintenance is vital to expand the capabilities and improve the
performance and reliability of our core network and Cloud Networks
offering.  Furthermore it will reduce the need for such interruptions
for future upgrades.  We always strive to have no-downtime deploys of
upgrades, but some require small delays in network traffic while the
process completes.  We only perform them after extensive testing and
planning to ensure minimal impact.

Thank you,
