Service downtime

Friday, February 15th, 2008

From  7:25 EST to 10:20AM our storage service provider (Amazon) experienced massive service outage.

Hundreds of businesses were affected by this failure. Our Application servers were operational. What you had likely noticed is thumbnail images and videos were not displayed. Those files are served from that our storage provider calls “Scalable and Reliable data store with 99.99% availability”. Like you, we are all disappointed by what happened.
