Server Reboot
« on: February 11, 2018, 07:59:55 PM »

Hi there,

During the one hour window noted above, we will be performing reboots on a small portion of our fleet in the NYC1 region. This will result in your Droplets, listed below, being offline for the duration of the reboot.

We have dedicated all available resources to this maintenance to ensure your Droplets are back online as quickly as possible. We anticipate a maximum downtime of fifteen minutes for impacted Droplets, but expect most Droplets to be back online much faster.

You can read more about the reason for these reboots here: https://blog.digitalocean.com/a-message-about-intel-security-findings

This reboot will not automatically patch your Droplet, you should follow this guide to do so: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-protect-your-server-against-the-meltdown-and-spectre-vulnerabilities

If you have any questions, please reply to this email and our support team will be happy to assist you.

Kind Regards,
DigitalOcean

Affected Droplets:
Ballpc-Home-nyc1
Buckeye-Ubuntu-1604-nyc1
