What do customers need to know?
Why the migration to Tulsa
Since our parent company acquired CubixCloud in January of 2013 we all have worked diligently to provide the same level of service you received prior to the acquisition. In order to maintain flexibility and service it was required to decommission the node in Chicago, IL. The also helps us maintain economic stability which is important for you as the customer.
It also gives us direct access to network resources we wouldn't otherwise have had with our current third-party data center in Chicago, IL. Customer satisfaction is our number priority and moving to an owned data center allows us to focus more on you.
We can handle the DNS updates for you
If you wish to have CubixCloud handle your DNS updates. Just provide us with the login details and we will update your records for and make sure your server never misses a beat.
Maintenance Windows and Service Credits
We will do our best to keep downtime to a minimum as we move your VPS account. This is why we are performing a live migration. Should we need to perform a cold migration we will. Performing a cold migration is only last resort after we've exhausted all other alternatives. This migration is maintenance and there will be no credits issued for downtime, should it occur.
New IP Addresses and Resources
The new IP addresses will be allocated from our parent company. Our parent company OCOSA gets their IP Resources allocated directly from the American Registry of Internet Numbers (ARIN). If you would like your IP(s) SWIP'd please notify us once we contact you via our ticketing system.
The time has come for content providers and website owners to have both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity. We will be adding IPv6 connectivity to all of our servers very soon. If you would like an IPv6 address and have not yet requested an IPv6 address please open up ticket and make a request for IPv6.
We cannot offer IPv6 to our Chicago Node at this time. The third-party data center is working on establishing an IPv6 network for several years to no avail.
If you have any questions or concerns about the migration please open a ticket located at http://account.cubixcloud.com/submitticket.php.
