XenServer Upgrade

Date: 
Sun, 05/10/2014 - 02:00 - 08:00

During this Window we will be upgrading the XenSever hypervisor software that powers our virtualisation environment. We will utilise the XenMotion funtionality during this window to move virtual machines between hosts, but the environment is at risk for the duration of the window as we will have reduced redundancy and the upgrade carries a small risk. The upgrade is necessary for us to install security updates and to support new operating systems such as Windows Server 2012 R2.
