This is currently being investigated by our network engineers.

Decision has been made to shut down Pay As You Host (Plesk) services due to ISCSI issues caused by the network problems. We cannot be sure that the current issues will not cause filesystem issues as currently all the servers are going into read only mode.

All PAYH services are now back up. Service currently seems stable and we are monitoring for any further issues.

A line card belonging to one of our network switches has failed.
We have moved all critical services to a healthy card and disabled other lesser services from the load balancer at that site. Engineers are currently onsite to remove the failed card from the switch.

Things are looking stable again and we have moved some services back to the affected site. Problem to be downgraded for monitoring.
