Virtual instances - Hong Kong Node v1305 performance degradation

At 15:21 PST our system identified degraded performance on node v1305; we are investigating the issue.

15:27 PST we have identified the source of degradation; this issue relates to the recent CPU vulnerability patches we applied back on January 6.

In order to apply this fix, a node reboot + BIOS update is required. We will shut down all VMs shortly.

15:50 PST all updates applied, VMs will start one by one in the next 20 minutes.
