We could have optimized for a time where we had less traffic, like late Friday night, but since we hadn't performed this kind of upgrade before we felt like optimizing for a time where most of the team could be online and alert made sense.
The next time we need scheduled downtime (or, gasp! face unscheduled downtime) we will likely have way more users online at all times. This kind of thing isn't getting easier.
No worries at all 😉 👍
