We are excited to inform you that SAP is harmonizing regular maintenance windows across SAP Cloud Services. As a result, we are able to provide higher system availability to our customers.
Beginning May 20, 2017 the standard regular maintenance window for SAP Cloud Services will be harmonized by region (Asia, Europe, Americas) and standardized on UTC time. The standard regular maintenance window time will be 4 hours. Some SAP Cloud Services have a shorter window, some even are offering Zero Downtime Maintenance, which means that these services will remain online while regular maintenance is being performed.
Your service SAP Product Stewardship Network will be affected by this change as follows:
