We are going to be doing restarts of the underlying cloud hardware to address a possible bug that has caused downtime recently.
During this we expect no downtime as the actual hosting servers will be migrated to other cloud hardware during the restart. However, storage speed and site load times may slow down for short periods of time both from the restart and the live migration.
We will be doing the first restart at 8PM EST which is a storage only node currently to prep for the larger reboots. doing this will provide us the ability to provide a eta for the main restarts.
We received notifications at 5:56 AM that everything had gone offline. We reached out to our facility and they were already aware and working to resolve the issue.
For clarity this was an issue upstream from us - our network and servers were online and operational but lost connectivity to the internet when the facility as a whole experienced a disruption.
The network came back online after 58 minutes and we are awaiting a Root Cause Analysis [RCA] from our facility regarding the network outage. As soon as we have the cause of the outage we will make it available here.
