What was the "Mandatory Maintenance for Java Cloud Service" last night?

Had I been working in Operations and on-call at an organisation using Java Cloud Service then it appeared I may well have been rudely woken up last night!  At around 2am in the UK this email innocently dropped into my mail box:
