In progress - Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Dec 28, 18:00 EST
Scheduled - As we move into the final stages of our Atlanta site improvement project it will be necessary to migrate the virtual machines running on the legacy hardware to our new refreshed platform over the coming weeks. These migrations will occur as standard VMware vmotions and should have no impact to the availability of our services. However, should you experience any perceived issue with your service please contact us immediately so we can verify it is not related to these activities. This has been an extensive project with very thorough testing and preparation. Once complete the Atlanta site will have additional redundancy, capacity, and performance.

This stage is focused on the migration of our IaaS and DRaaS services first with DaaS and BaaS to follow with future announcements.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.

Resolved - Following the rebalance process completed this weekend, Green Cloud network operations center has seen no further recurrences of the latency issue for Atlanta DaaS users. At this time, should you have issues with this service, please report them individually to Support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com.
Mar 18, 18:29 EDT
Update - Green Cloud engineers have completed rebalancing workloads across several SANs that support our DaaS services in the Atlanta data center. At this time, the overall latency performance metric has been consistently within acceptable thresholds across the environment. The network operations center will continue to monitor performance and will address recurrences should they arise. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com.
Mar 16, 15:04 EDT
Monitoring - After working with our storage vendor's engineering team throughout the evening, Green Cloud is continuing now with rebalancing the workloads in Atlanta to mitigate the latency issue impacting DaaS users. The network operations center has seen the overall performance back to expected levels within the last hour. Additional updates throughout the weekend will be made if thresholds are once again exceeded. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com
Mar 16, 00:15 EDT
Investigating - High latency has returned and is far above the levels expected. We are currently engaging our storage vendor for a solution. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com.
Mar 15, 20:58 EDT
Update - Green Cloud has shown the overall latency metrics for Atlanta DaaS subscribers stay within acceptable levels throughout the majority of the day today, and the NOC is continuing to monitor. Additional updates throughout the evening and weekend will be made only if thresholds are once again exceeded and performance further degraded. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com.
Mar 15, 17:40 EDT
Update - Green Cloud has seen overall latency metrics maintain acceptable levels over the last two hours and the network operations center is continuing to monitor the entire environment to address recurrences or additional impacts should they arise. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com
Mar 15, 14:13 EDT
Update - Green Cloud is continuing with the re-balance actions for DaaS storage in our Atlanta data center, to help mitigate individual user impact; this is concurrent to the storage vendor investigating into the root cause. Overall latency metrics have improved over the last two hours, however, are not yet consistent. The network operations center is continuing to monitor the entire environment to address these recurrences or additional impacts should they arise. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com
Mar 15, 11:56 EDT
Update - This morning, as many desktop users return to the business day, we have seen latency on the impacted storage increase above expected thresholds. We have escalated again the high severity incident with our vendor. The network operations center is continuing to monitor the entire environment to address these recurrences or additional impacts should they arise. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com
Mar 15, 09:56 EDT
Update - Green Cloud engineers have completed the initial rebalance actions to mitigate the storage latency issues reported for DaaS users in the Atlanta data center. Since approximately 7:30pm Eastern time, overall latency metrics have been within expected thresholds across the environment. The network operations center is continuing to monitor and will address recurrences or additional impacts should they arise. We will continue to work with our storage vendors to determine root cause. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com.
Mar 14, 22:39 EDT
Update - Green Cloud engineers are working to rebalance workload across several SANs supporting our DaaS services. in the Atlanta data center. The expectation is that we will continue with this course of action for the remainder of the day and throughout the evening. As the overall workload decreases, the impact of the storage latency will subside for individual users. Status updates will be provided here at least every 2 hours until the incident is considered fully resolved. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support at 877-465-1217 or support@gogreencloud.com

Resolved - Yesterday, March 5th, Green Cloud engineers correlated seemingly unrelated network events with a known Cisco ASA vulnerability. These events presented as a brief loss of connectivity while the appliance unexpectedly reloaded. Similar interruptions were reported by other service providers and industry sources throughout the day.

From Cisco's Security Advisory:
"A vulnerability in the web interface of the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause an affected device to reload unexpectedly, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition. It is also possible on certain software releases that the ASA will not reload, but an attacker could view sensitive system information without authentication by using directory traversal techniques."

"Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability."

The full advisory is available at the following link:
https://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-20180606-asaftd

Green Cloud reminds its partners to upgrade any customer ASAv's if they are on the older, affected firmware. We have two recommended firmware versions: 9.9.2.32 and 9.10.1.7. Note: if you would like to move to the 9.10 firmware track, Cisco requires a memory upgrade if you were previously on a 9.9 or earlier release. This memory upgrade will require coordinating with Green Cloud so we can power down the appliance and add the memory. If you do not coordinate with Green Cloud ahead of upgrading to 9.10.1.7, you may cause your ASAv to become inoperable.

The following links will give you a step-by-step procedure for the upgrade process. The process should not exceed a 30-minute window.

Please use the following URLs for ASAv firmware (only available from within the Green Cloud network, instructions below reflect the requirement that you download the firmware from the ASA itself when using the CLI or from a VM in the Green Cloud environment if using ASDM).

9.9.2.32: http://web01gsp.grncld.com/ciscoimages/asa992-32-smp-k8.bin

ASAv upgrade instructions via ASDM - http://gogreencloud.com/knowledge-base/asav-upgrade-asdm/

Our Network Operations and Engineering teams have reviewed the Green Cloud infrastructure in response to the recent network events and will be continually testing and applying any necessary updates during scheduled maintenance windows as announced through the Operational Status page (status.grncld.net).

Green Cloud Managed ASAv customers have already been upgraded as part of the normal upgrade cycle and are unaffected by this advisory.
