Scheduled Service Change
Maintenance: Upgrade the Compellent Storage array code

Date: May 1, 2011, 07:00 AM
Duration: Until 05/01/2011 at 12:00 PM

Status: Closed

Description:

We will be upgrading the Compellent Storage Center array code from version 4.5.5 to 5.4.4. This is part of an ongoing effort to keep our storage arrays current as well as add new features and performance enhancements

Services Impacted:

    We expect this to be a non-disruptive code update with zero downtime to the services using this array. However, the servers will see momentary disruptions of up to 20 seconds as luns failover to the backup controller. For most servers this has not been an issue.
