  1. SUBJECT: REX EDGE Servers, Sporadic Outages, and Coronavirus TYPE: ALERT LEVEL: HIGH DATE: Friday, March 27, 2020 EFFECTIVE DATE/TIME: Friday, March 27, 2020 END DATE/TIME: TBD TOPIC: Dear Customer – As you know over the past several days, we have been experiencing outages with our data servers. In conversation with our hosting firm it has come to our awareness that our outages are not just our own. Our hosting firm as well as many others have been hit hard by the tremendous load put on ISP’s due to the coronavirus pandemic worldwide. This load has been felt in many sectors as many have been forced to stay at home from work and school. Most ISP’s have reported they have exceeded their full year 2020 projected usage within the past week. Though not communicated directly to us, it appears that we are low priority when it comes to bandwidth usage. We are looking for ways to offload this and hope to have a solution soon. We will continue to work for a solution in this time. Thank you for your patience and we truly apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

This is due to the fact that our hosting firm is presently moving our servers to their new facility. Unfortunately, we never received an alert to this move in advance. They have informed us that the server should be back up within 8 to 12 hours. We will keep you advised when it is available. We truly apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused.

  4. SUBJECT: Download File Error Resolved TYPE: ALERT LEVEL: HIGH DATE: Thursday, March 19, 2020 TOPIC: We experience an issue yesterday with our CDN in which they switched their security protocol. This affected a couple of products in how we downloaded files from their site. This issue has now been RESOLVED. However, REX Worldwide Airports is still impacted by this event. The only area impacted is downloading Enhanced Airports. The rest of the program works fine. We are presently within the beta cycle test of Creative Update 2.0. Once this testing cycle is complete, we will release that build which will include the fix for this product.
