Engine Yard suffered an outage today from their datacenter. Here’s what they had to say:
We have been in constant contact with our Herakles data center throughout this service interruption. Unfortunately, root cause determination at Herakles for the ISP outage is unknown at this time. Herakles started troubleshooting at the core switching, then to the routers coming into the facility, and are now focused on the distribution switches inside the data center. At this time, Herakles data does not have an ETA for resolution of this problem. We will continue to keep you updated as we hear information from the Herakles data center operations team.
Unfortunately, after the issue was resolved, DevjaVu was still down. Since then I’ve been in contact with them and they’re on it. There’s no ETA, but my guess is within the next hour. Although I’m sure they have a number of follow up issues with their clients after this massive outage.
Anyway, sorry about this outage. If only DevjaVu had an offline mode, no?
Update @ 4/1 10am: No April Fools here. Downtime was extended overnight due to a billing glitch. It’s been resolved and Engine Yard is currently restoring our slices, which should be up momentarily.
Update @ 4/1 1pm: We’re back! After much unnecessary delay from problem after problem after problem. *sigh* I feel like I could have done better. Feel free to yell at me next time you see me.
