Update: We're back online! We had roughly 1 minute of downtime and successfully completed the migration. Capacity is roughly doubled, and easier to scale going forward.
Tonight, 2019-11-19, FTX will be undergoing a database migration. The migration will begin at 23:00:00 Hong Kong/China = 15:00:00 UTC. We anticipate the migration lasting about 15 minutes.
This will cause all limit orders to be canceled. Please plan accordingly.
While we are optimistic that this will not have significant impact on trading during the time, there is a substantial chance that it will result in lower liquidity or possible downtime. We will keep everyone updated on twitter, telegram, and wechat as the migration occurs.
We will be monitoring the risk engine closely during the period to ensure that it does not lead to any unnecessary liquidations.
We expect this migration to help reduce latency going forward.
