We will be performing planned maintenance of F5 Distributed Cloud services as follows:

Schedule: [Backup Upgrade Window]
• Start Time: March 28, 2024 - 4:00AM UTC
• Estimated Completion Time: March 28, 2024 - 11:00AM UTC

• Upgrade Global Controller to the latest software version.
• Upgrade Regional Edge (RE) sites to the latest software version.
o Software of the RE sites are upgraded in a rolling update manner, ensuring no
disruption to Distributed Cloud services.
o Rolling updates are performed on batches of RE sites, where each batch includes
a set of geographically distributed RE sites.

• All services are expected to remain operational and available during the entire
maintenance window with no noticeable impact. This is achieved by removing the RE
site from the anycast network, before starting the upgrade, thereby causing the traffic
to be re-routed to other available RE sites in the region. As a result, data plane services
will continue without interruption except if tenants have a hard coded dependency to a
specific RE site.
• Management plane configuration changes will continue to be recorded and actively
propagated during most of the duration of the upgrade, except during the time period
when Global Controller is being upgraded or during the time period when customers’
config-path RE site is being upgraded.
