    At FyfeWeb, we're always looking at ways in which we can improve our services and network infrastructure. That's why on Friday 28th June at around midnight, we'll be moving into a brand new cabinet in Equinix LD8. The reasons for the move are to improve service availability, add additional redundancy into the network and also have higher power density within this particular data centre for future upgrades we have planned.

    This is a very rare event, the last time we moved some of our edge network infrastructure was in 2020, around four years ago now (interestingly enough, also in June!) so we're not expecting anything like this to happen in the near future anyway.

    This will cause service disruption in the following data centres for around one hour, which is why we're doing the work after midnight:

    • Equinix LD8, London

    • Stellium, Newcastle upon Tyne

    • Reliance House, Newcastle upon Tyne

    We'll be working late into the night to ensure all work gets completed as quickly as possible, and to ensure minimum disruption to your services.

    This work will predominantly effect customer dedicated servers and colocation services. Our VPS and cPanel hosting will not be affected.

    We're also giving over one months notice to ensure you're aware of the scope of work being carried out. Please do get in touch if you have any further questions.

    Kind regards,

    Jaden
