Details of User Story

Autoupdate of CORE can happen at any point during the day. As a multiregion company (all US, all EU & all AP time zones), there is a short window where this can happen where no one is on the systems. It would be good to utilise that time to perform maintenance.

In our legacy system, a core restart takes upwards of 40 minutes (theres a lot in there), so we can't do auto update there. Our new system is around 5 minutes.

Acceptance criteria
