In progress
Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.

We will be applying monthly patches across our backend infrastructure starting at 2022-11-19 at 07:00 PDT. The maintenance period is expected to last for 18 hours. In scope for this maintenance window are the following changes:
* upgrading Kubernetes API version for all clusters
* rolling restart of kubernetes worker nodes to apply latest 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 might fail in-flight 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.
