The scheduled maintenance is now underway. We'll keep you updated on our progress.


During routine platform checks we have identified an issue where our backup solution has not removed snapshots on a number of VMs post completion of backup. This issue does not present any risk to backup integrity, nor service availability in the near term - however failure to address the issue could lead to service issues in the future. We have already resolved the underlying issue and this maintenance window is to merge the "stale" snapshots with their parent VHDs.

We do not expect any customer impact during these works.
