Upgrading ~okeanos, new features coming!

Hello ~okeanos users,

We are happy to announce that on Thursday, May 12 2016 we will be doing a major upgrade to the ~okeanos service, with a new version of the Synnefo software.

The upgrade will start at 08:00 EET and we expect it to last 3 hours, until 11:00 EET.
During the upgrade Astakos, Cyclades and Pithos+ Web UIs and their APIs will be unavailable.
Your standard-storage VMs and Pithos+ files should remain unaffected. However, the disk of your archipelago VMs may freeze for a few minutes in the above timeframe.

After the upgrade, you will be able to use some really interesting new features, which we will be showing off in an upcoming blog post.

Thanks for your understanding,
the ~okeanos team
