Planned Downtime: Upgrading Google Cloud Elastic Search Cluster

Showcase IDX will be upgrading our Elastic Search Cluster tonight (The night of 5/1-5/2), starting at 3am EST.

We'll probably be down for about 90 minutes. This means the search will not work on your website during this time.

We're starting so late to make sure there's minimal impact on your websites and users.

This upgrade will give five us substantially more capacity on our main search cluster in Google Cloud. Without the tech jargon, we're beefing up the servers that handle the searches so we can support more concurrent searches and ensure they are as quick as quick can be.

We're also sharing this notification in the admin intercom chat and in the changelog.
