Maintenance this Sunday: Control Panel and API will be Offline

We will be taking the control panel, API, and ability to sign-up for our services offline this Sunday. As of right now, we plan to take it offline from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST. We made this announcement on our system status page, but I also wanted to explain why we’re doing this.
While we never like to take any part of our system offline for such a long period of time, we’re doing it for a good reason. We are moving the control panel and API to Rackspace, our managed hosting partner. This is the only piece of our system that isn’t hosted in our redundant, high availability environment at Rackspace. So from here on out, the performance and uptime of both the control panel and API will be much better, much more reliable. That is a good thing.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause on Sunday. We tried to pick the most unobtrusive day of the week and we’ll work hard to get this done as fast as we can.
