We will be performing some planned maintenance on the Ning Platform on Wednesday, February 20, from 10pm-2am Pacific Time. During this time, all Ning Networks will be offline and display branded maintenance pages. Ning.com will be down for maintenance as well.
We will be performing maintenance on the Ning Platform on Friday, November 16, beginning at 10 PM Pacific Time. During this time, all Ning Networks will be unavailable for approximately 15 minutes.
We’ve been proud to offer a consistently high uptime and need to perform some crucial database updates to ensure that reliability continues.
During this time:
The launch of Ning Mini, Ning Plus and Ning Pro on July 20th involves a significant update to our code base. As a result, we will need to take the Ning Platform down for maintenance beginning at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on July 20th. The maintenance may take up to two hours, after which Network Creators will be able to purchase the new plans and begin enjoying new features. Due to the nature of the maintenance, we may not be able to display individually branded maintenance pages. Networks will likely show a simple unbranded error message.
We have always prided ourselves on our uptime record. In March, we had 99.999% uptime. However, Ning Networks experienced slowness last week and brief downtime on Thursday evening. I wanted to take a few moments to walk you through what happened last week and what we’re working on to improve on situations like this going forward.
Keeping your Ning Network available for visitors, members and content posting is our top priority. When we looked at how we were measuring the availability of the Ning Platform at the beginning of the year, we realized that we needed to update how we measured the Ning Platform’s availability. We finalized a plan for measuring our uptime in Feb. and put it into action in March. From here on out, we’ll post regular, monthly updates of how we’re doing at keeping your Ning Network online and speedy.
On Friday, April 9, we’ll be doing some maintenance on the Ning Platform beginning at 10 p.m Pacific Time and ending 4 hours later at 2 a.m. When we perform necessary downtime maintenance, we make sure that we get a lot of key things accomplished so that we can maintain our consistently high uptime rate. During this period, we’ll be doing crucial upgrades to hardware, systems and databases to ensure Ning Networks stay online and speedy.
