Update
iland engineers have completed enabling all tenants in the DAL22 iland Secure Cloud Backup environment. The environment is fully online and accepting connections for jobs to run.

The system is currently working through a backlog of jobs and as a result, jobs may take longer to begin data transfer. Based on test jobs, data transfers should operate at normal speed once resources have been assigned.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Our goal is to provide the highest level of uptime and reliability in order for us to consistently serve our customers.

Update
iland engineers will be performing a Veeam recommended maintenance in the Dallas (DAL22) iland Secure Cloud Backup environment. The reason for this maintenance is that Veeam engineering is providing fixes for the Veaam Backup and Replication server that is experiencing delays communicating with the underlying Veeam Repositories used to store customer backup data.

Veeam services will be restarted to apply these fixes. iland engineers will be disabling all tenant accounts prior to the maintenance starting. Customers will receive errors stating their tenant is disabled during the maintenance window. Once the maintenance has been completed we will re-enable all tenants.

Maintenance will begin 10:00 CT on Wednesday, December 18th, 2019 ending at 12:00 CT. Please use the link below to see more details and updates regarding the maintenance.

Update
iland engineers have resolved the initial issue within the Dallas (DAL22) environment that resulted in slow disk performance on multiple repository servers and caused failed jobs and merge issues.

iland engineers have also worked with our provider Veeam on the service provider software issue that resulted in performance degradation. Some customers experienced job failures and long running jobs. Veeam recommended customers try “recreating the interval” (by right clicking the delayed job and choosing “Sync Now”) in order to get data flowing again.

Jobs continue to process with a reduced number of concurrent tasks assigned per tenant (in order to aid in recovery). Iland support is available to work directly with clients who are still experiencing issues so that we may identify any outlying errors or problems.

Update
Recent tests conducted by iland and senior Veeam engineers revealed that a retry interval under certain conditions could take as long as 24 hours. This interval may be recreated by right clicking the delayed job and choosing “Sync Now”.

Veeam recommends starting a new interval using the Sync Now option to get data flowing again. (for customers seeing delays in the job to start synchronizing with the iland cloud connect repository)

Please contact support with any questions or concerns.

Update
iland engineers have been working with Veeam Tier 3 support on restoring the performance of the DAL22 iland Secure Cloud Backup environment. The environment is fully online and accepting connections for jobs to run. The system is currently working through a backlog of jobs and as a result, jobs will take significantly longer to begin data transfer. Based on test jobs, data transfers should operate at normal speed once resources have been assigned.

We will continue to work with Veeam Tier 3 support to improve performance.

Identified
iland engineers have identified the issue within the Dallas (DAL22) environment. Some of the many servers we use that hold the Veeam Cloud Connect backups are subjected to a manufacturer problem with their mid-plane. What is happening is that a few of these repository servers are having slow disk performance because of this issue and may cause failed jobs or merge issues. This is isolated to a few servers at this time. We are working diligently with the manufacturer who has released a new version of the mid-plane and are actively replacing them in these servers.

We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing and are actively working on resolving the issue as quickly as possible.
