[Europe] VUSION Cloud maintenance
Scheduled Maintenance Report for VUSION Cloud

Dear customers,

On the 21st of March 2023, during the release of VUSION Cloud, in Europe environment, our Cloud engineers encounter a major issue while deploying some transmitters' management services. As a result, a large subset of customers have experienced offline transmitters, for up to 1h30. During this period of time, most transmissions have failed for those stores.

Our Cloud engineers have identified that during the deployment of some resources, Microsoft Azure missed part of the software, while marked all steps as successful. Due to this, the software was unable to start properly and to establish connexions with transmitters. Around 16:40 UTC, our cloud engineers identified the impacted piece of software and the impacted units.

In order to improve the overall reliability and to avoid the occurrence of similar incidents in the future:

  • We will change our deployment method to control uploaded resources;
  • Our deployment process has been updated to add control steps before rolling out all units.

On behalf of SES-imagotag, the whole Cloud team would like to apology for the impact it may have had. Please be assured that we are working continuously to improve the quality of the platform and the user experience.

Dear customers,

the scheduled maintenance is still in progress. Our Cloud Engineers have encountered issues during deployment of changes. The root cause is a standard step of Azure that partially failed.

As consequence, the maintenance will take longer than scheduled and is expected to be done by 17:30 UTC.

Engineers do not expect any downtime in the last steps of the maintenance. For a subset of customer, transmitters may be offline during some minutes.

On behalf of SES-imagotag, the whole Cloud team would like to apologize for the impact and to thank you for your understanding.
