Update: The maintenance was a success, we were down for only 4 minutes.
In the past four weeks we have seen a stunning growth of over 400% in both encoding volume as well as revenue.
While that is generally good news, we have to do some maintenance on our database to keep up with the increased amount of requests we are servicing.
For that reason we are announcing a 1 hour maintenance window starting at 9pm CEST (7pm UTC) on Thursday, July 7th 2011.
We are expecting only a brief downtime of ~10 minutes while we are migrating over to a faster database server with improved indexes. But in the worst case we might need up to 1 hour to bring the service back online.
