Status Update for EDIS Global Customers

We are closely monitoring the significant geological developments in Iceland. A state of emergency has been declared due to escalating earthquakes and fears of a volcanic eruption (Fagradalsfjall), particularly near Grindavík, which is only 35 kilometers from Hafnarfjörður, where our EDIS Global servers are located. In the past 24 hours alone, over 1,400 earthquakes have been recorded.

Urgent Recommendation: Data Backup

Given the proximity of our server location to the affected area and the rapidly changing situation, we strongly recommend that you back up all data stored on our Iceland servers as a precautionary measure. This step is crucial to protect your valuable information from potential risks associated with these geological events.
