Virtual instances - Hong Kong Nodes v1302, v1303, v1304, v1306 - Preventative emergency maintenance

18:08 PST We will be performing an emergency maintenance on the above referenced nodes in order to prevent performance degradation. Redhat advised us that we should revert CPU microcode patches applied on January 6 and instead update system BIOS to apply microcode updates - this should prevent the inevitable stability and performance issues on these nodes.

18:41 PST Maintenance completed. All VMs will restart within the next 10 minutes.
