Missed deadline

Looking for some advice here....

About a month ago we sent out a notice to our customers that we would be moving our SAaS service from our hosted data center to the AWS cloud.  The weekend to do teh migration is now here and we have run into an issue migrating data that will give us reason to believe there is a chance that the site may not be ready Monday morning when we are supposed to be ready.  The management team here is saying that there is no way we can send out a notice delaying this migration.  I am requesting we give the customers notice that the migration will be postponed.  How bad does postponing the migration look?  How does it compare to having real problems on Monday if it does not go as planned?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think postponing the migration makes more sense than rushing it.  Customers should respect that decision as you have their best interest in mind.  Is management's decision to save face or financial.
