07/24 – 07/25 Downtime

vis.nu Networks was down for an extended period of time this weekend for two reasons:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
