WPEngine Sending Out Emergency Maintenance Notice

We have received the following notice from WPEngine:

We are contacting you today regarding an issue that may impact your site.  The majority of Cloud Providers across the world will be conducting maintenance for a security related issue. In order to implement the patch, our 3rd party data center providers will be rebooting. For more information about providers responding to the situation please visit this article: https://gigaom.com/2015/02/27/xen-security-issue-prompts-amazon-rackspace-cloud-reboots/

Our 3rd party data center providers have informed us that they will be conducting a maintenance across their environment on March 6, 2015 for 24 hours. We believe that the maintenance may result in a brief interruption of service to your site during a server reboot.  We are contacting customers immediately to let them know of this emergency maintenance.

This maintenance window spans the entire 24 hours and the reboot could happen at any time during the maintenance window. We expect a brief period of downtime while the providers implement the patch.  Outside of the brief downtime, there should be no impact to your site. We will be monitoring the situation closely.

Any updates on this maintenance will be posted to our status page at http://wpenginestatus.com

At WP Engine we take the security of your site seriously. Thank you for the opportunity to support your business.
