[2021-08-02 18:00 – 20:00 ] VCEA IT Maintenance – Firewall 0

Firewall0 (the new set of firewalls we’re slowly migrating to) will be upgraded to the current version, starting at 6pm. Overall process is expected to take 1-2 hours, but given the high availability configuration of firewall0, minimal, if any, impact should be observed during this process.
