Please be aware that we have scheduled an upgrade to the Acquia Cloud for Thursday and Friday, November 10 and 11. You should expect the following as a result:
The upgrade will be divided between two customer groups; each group has been emailed appropriately.
Group one: Thursday, November 10
AWS US-East customers: between 6:00am and 8:00am EST
AWS EU-West customers: between 5:00pm and 7:00pm EST
Group two: Friday, November 11 between 6:00am and 8:00am EST
Drush 4.5: Drush, the "Drupal shell" utility designed to save time at the command prompt, will be upgraded from version 4.4 to 4.5. This release includes many bug fixes, four new commands (cache-get, cache-set, archive-dump, archive-restore), and the introduction of the Drush testing framework.
Conditional settings.php: Acquia Cloud will be providing a settings.php "include file" that automatically configures your site to use the correct database, memcached servers, and other features of the Cloud environment. We now will load this include file in a way that lets you use the same settings.php file on Acquia Cloud and on your local workstation.
Effect: Balancers will be restarted and customers may notice a brief outage.
Expected Downtime: None to no more than a few seconds.
If you have questions, please open a ticket with an Acquia Client Advisor.
