Planned service interruption: all VPN servers in Toronto on October 31

author David Wibergh, about Status & transparency reports

Update 2: due to an unforeseen emergency situation at the datacenter they had to reschedule the maintenance to October 31st at 14:00 UTC instead.


Update: the maintenance will occur on October 30th at 14:00 UTC instead of November 1st.


OVPN currently has three VPN servers in Amanaha's data center on 1 Yonge Street in Toronto, Canada. The bandwidth volume in Toronto does not require three servers, and we will therefore remove two of them and just keep one server in Toronto. VPN26 and VPN27 will be removed and shipped off to new data centers.

The ISP and IP addresses used in Toronto will also be replaced in conjunction with this maintenance. Up until this service interruption, we've been using Cogent. However, we'll start using Amanaha's network instead, which has a mix of Cogent, GTT, HE and peering with Torix. User speeds should be increased by migrating to their network.

We're unsure exactly when the interruption will take place on November 1st as well as how long it'll last. Our current estimate is that VPN25 will be unavailable for roughly two hours.
