About maintenance windows

Regular maintenance occurs quarterly, on a preferred schedule, on the Wowza Streaming Cloud service.

During these maintenance windows, you can't sign in to Wowza Streaming Cloud or use the Wowza Streaming Cloud REST API. Any live streams or transcoders that are already running will not be affected. However, stream and transcoder start and stop events that are scheduled to occur during the maintenance window will not work.

If and when the date or duration of a maintenance window changes, we will notify customers with as much lead time as possible. If emergency maintenance is required, customers may be notified less than one week in advance.

Please plan your own maintenance activities for Wowza Streaming Cloud (for example, integration changes) outside of the preferred Wowza Streaming Cloud maintenance windows.
