scheduled maintenance “NYC1 Network Maintenance 2019-03-29 12:00 UTC” pretty much like vultr vps hosting server, I’ve used both in the past and appears to be working pretty well. They have good communication such as below for server maintenance down time, however any downtime is not good, but at least you get a heads up to prepare and also good for server being updated and you know they care to have it updated and being look at all the time.

During the above window, the networking team will be making changes to our core networking equipment to increase capacity in our NYC1 data center.
We do not expect any impact to customer traffic during this maintenance. There may be a small amount of packet loss.
Thank you,
DigitalOcean Networking Team
