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 scheduled to occur during the maintenance window will not work.

To stay apprised of Wowza Streaming Cloud maintenance windows and the status of all Wowza systems and services, go to the Wowza System Status page and subscribe to updates.

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.
