Reboot of host machines at our hosting provider, scheduled 2 years ago

Our hosting provider is rebooting all host machines due to a security upgrade and this may affect the availability of Tideways. The reboot is scheduled for the period between 00:00-08:00 Europe/Berlin on 21st July, or 22:00-06:00 UTC on 20th-21st July.

Our database master and slave are affected by this, so that we cannot realistically work with manual failovers at the right time. Potential downtime is not expected to be longer than a few minutes.
