Planned Maintenance: Enhancing Heartbeat Monitoring Stability

We’re excited to announce that we will be migrating our cron job (Heartbeat) monitoring to a new server provider this week. Here are all the important details.

This migration will enable us to optimize our infrastructure and increase the reliability for you, our valued users. The new provider claims an availability of  ≥99.999%.

We’ve decided to migrate due to the increased number of incidents on the side of our current provider. The availability of our service is of the utmost importance.
