Scheduled Maintenance: Database Service Required, scheduled 2 years ago
Date & Time: Sunday 2017-12-17 5:00 UTC. 00:00 EST (midnight). 9pm Saturday 2017-12-16 PST.
Estimated Duration: 30 minutes. Actual Duration: 9 minutes.
Purpose: Our master database must be restarted for necessary updates to take effect.
Additional Information: We do not expect a full 30 minutes of downtime. Also, we apologize for the late notice on this. Though AWS is forcing this, and they're giving us more time, we're choosing to do it sooner, as our staffing over the upcoming holidays will make this more difficult the closer to the deadline we get.
Resolution: This maintenance window completed successfully, with a total of 9 minutes of downtime.
