Web app Planned reboot by our hosting provider, DigitalOcean.

Our hosting provider (DigitalOcean) will be rebooting all servers to further secure them against the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. This will affect the availability of Peepl on 07/03/2018 between 17:00 - 18:00 CET for ~15 minutes.

"DigitalOcean is working to mitigate the industry-wide security vulnerabilities known as Meltdown and Spectre. As part of our mitigation efforts, we have planned an ongoing maintenance that will affect all Droplets in all regions. During the one hour window noted above, we will be performing reboots on a small portion of our fleet. 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. We are primarily performing this maintenance during business hours so we can maximize our available resources for issues that might arise and continue to maintain service levels for our users.
