The scheduled maintenance has been completed.

In progress
Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Posted Dec 09, 2023 - 07:00 PST
We will be applying monthly patches across our backend infrastructure starting at 2023-12-09 at 07:00 PDT. The maintenance period is expected to last for 10 hours total. In scope for this maintenance window are the following changes:
* Rolling restart of kubernetes worker nodes to apply latest patches
* Upgrade of several backend service deployments to apply new patches
Monthly patching is necessary for us to be on top of the latest security fixes for the software we run. A monthly cadence ensures that we remediate vulnerabilities within a timely window.

Since there is rolling restart of the backend infrastructure serving the AoC API during this time, there may be times that backend services become unavailable as processes get restarted and re-shuffled around. API calls, including those that start transfers, might fail during this time, or events being ingested may take longer to be processed. However, it is expected that these interruptions should self-resolve quickly. If you experience a prolonged interruption during this time, please open a support ticket. The Devops team will be actively monitoring the upgrade during this time.
