N4-Protect (NGFW)

Description

N4Protect is Node4 multitenant next generation firewall service. On Thursday 18th June 2020, engineers will perform maintenance to upgrade N4Protect firewalls at Wakefield and Northampton datacentres. Engineers will perform an in service software upgrade. N4Protect is deployed in a highly available cluster and work will be completed on one appliance at a time, as a result services are expected to failover. However, we are issuing this notification in case of any unexpected impact from this maintenance. Impact: At Risk – 18th June 2020 22:00 - 19th June 2020 02:00 No downtime is expected, however services will be considered “At Risk” for the duration of the window. Updates will be posted to N4Status during this planned maintenance. Support & Feedback Our network operation engineers will closely monitor the work and will do everything possible to minimise any inconvenience to you. If you have any problems with your platform after this time, or if you have any questions regarding the maintenance at any point, please call Technical Support at 0845 123 2229 or visit node4.co.uk/support. Whilst it is important for Node4 to preform maintenance such as this to ensure the quality of our network, we do everything possible to minimise any inconvenience to our customers. We appreciate your patience and welcome feedback. Regards Node4 Technical Support.

On 20/06/2020 at 12:00 BST(mid day) LD5 Equinix Slough – Core Router Hardware Upgrades Impact At Risk 20/06/2020 at 12:00 – 20:00 Single downtime window of Services 30 minutes within window Node4 Engineers are replacing two core router’s within Equinix LD5, with newer updated hardware. This will leave MPLS and internet services at risk at that POP for the duration of the window. For those services with resiliency we expect no interruption to service but those services will be without resiliency for the duration of the window (at risk). There are a select few customers who have services which are non-resilient, that terminate on these devices and those customers will be contacted directly in addition to this notice. In window updates will be posted here. Support & Feedback Our network operations engineers will closely monitor the work and will do everything possible to minimise any inconvenience to you.

Description

Background On Tuesday 23rd June engineers will perform maintenance on the A and B feed PDUs supplying power to one of the four main network communications racks in the Leeds/DC-3 data centre. This is required to replace legacy PDUs which are showing fault conditions. Impact Only one power feed/PDU will be taken out of services at a time, as devices have dual redundant power supplies they are expected to continue to operate as normal. An MPLS access switch will however be impacted by this work as it needs to be temporarily relocated while one of the PDUs is replaced. It is expected that this device will be off line for up to 15 minutes during the maintenance window, this switch is primarily used by customers located in Hall-1 & Hall-2. MPLS, Ethernet Services and Internet Transit (N4-Transit) services for the Leeds Data Centre will be "at risk" during the following maintenance window: June 23, 2020 10:00 PM - June 24, 2020 00:00 AM BST Updates will be posted to N4Status during this planned maintenance.
