News: Scheduled OpenVZ Node Reboots

Published: 07/01/2018

As you may be aware, severe hardware level flaws have been published which affect almost all Intel processors - Meltdown and Spectre -

As part of our mitigation for these vulnerabilities, we will need to apply software updates that require a reboot. Following our successful KVM node reboots yesterday, we will be rebooting all OpenVZ nodes. This reboot is scheduled for approximately 9:00AM UTC 1/7/18. We apologise for the short notice however this is a necessary update for security reasons.

Please note: Clean shutdowns and reboots may mean the reboot process could take around half an hour for some nodes. If your server doesn't come back online after the reboot, or if you have any queries please open a ticket.
