  • Description
    Update Description: This deployment is proactive maintenance to deploy a new version of FortiOS within the environment. Maintenance will take place in off hours, between 6 PM and before 8 AM local time.



    In many cases, the duration of each interruption might be less than the full maintenance window. However, we strongly suggest that you take advantage of multi-region deployment of critical applications, where applicable, to minimize the disruption to your production applications. As previously mentioned, we also recommend using at least 3 instances of each critical application within each individual region.



    The IBM Cloud platform Engineering team will take all reasonable steps to minimize the disruption. We will closely monitor the progress and provide periodic general updates on the IBM Cloud platform Status page.

    Maintenance Duration: 240 minutes

    Type of Disruption: Other

    Disruptive Description: The upgrade is not intended to be disruptive because we will fail over from the primary Fortigate to the secondary Fortigate during the upgrade process. However, we notifying you as a precautionary measure so that you are aware of the underlying work that is taking place.

    Disruption Duration: 2 minutes
