    Start: 2014-08-18 04:00 UTC End: 2014-08-18 08:00 UTC We will be upgrading the software on our core routers to ensure added stability to the region. Expected Impact: There may be several brief periods of latency lasting 1-3 minutes each as we take a core router out of service, upgrade it and return it to service. We have full redundancy in this area and will only be doing 1 at a time to ensure full up time as the work is completed. We have tested the upgrade in our labs and consider it to be low risk. Resolution: Our analysis of recent outages in other regions has identified several software bugs. We are proactively updating our core routers to ensure increased stability and reliability of SFO1. Approximately 30 minutes prior to starting any work, we will post and update our progress on the www.digitaloceanstatus.com website and keep it updated with our progress. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact support. Thanks, DigitalOcean Networking Team.
