vis.nu Networks was down for an extended period of time this weekend for two reasons:
- The Washington Building, the building which houses vis.nu, had a chunk of its electrical infrastructure replaced during a nine hour downtime this weekend. We were given hours of notice.
- During that time, the drive in our Phoenix server, which still houses the DNS for our systems, failed. Since our usual reporting systems were offline, this wasn’t noticed until a couple of hours ago.
I’ve put a bandaid in place to handle the DNS, but systems that run in Phoenix are offline and will remain offline for some time. No ETR. More as I know.
