One of the defective disks has now been swapped with a replacement
disk, and services have been resumed.
There will be future downtime in the near future to replace the
remaining defective disk with a new disk, however it should be
significantly shorter in duration.

Performance of the system over the next 24 hours will be degraded
compared to normal as the RAID array rebuilds itself.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
