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

On Tuesday, October 18th at approximately 15:00-16:30 UTC window, we will perform a network maintenance on the Elastic network backbone. The routing policies between the production VPCs (ESS, secops, aviatrix) will be modified and simplified.
While the expected terraform change should not take more than 30 minutes, we are reserving a maintenance window for up to 1.5 hours to allow thorough testing and rollback(s) if needed. No impact is expected during this maintenance window, however in the event of an issue, the impact scope is as follows: Aviatrix VPN users may be unable to access internal services such as rundeck, teleport, vault for brief periods of time. Also, rundeck would lose connectivity to the ESS resources such as proxies, allocators etc. Log ingestion delays to secops VPC would also result.
The reason for this change and the need for this maintenance window is to simplify our routing policy, making our routing advertisements more deterministic and ultimately increase network stability going forward.
