June 19, 2012As you are aware there was a service interruption to day with one or more of your hosted services. The issue was caused by a faulty circuit breaker at the hosting facility where your services are housed. The incident caused power loss to critical switches and servers that controlled access to your webistes and other related services.
We were notified by automated monitoring services of the issue and began working immediately with the hosting facility to resolve the issue. The source of the power interruption was found and the appropriate power was rerouted.
We are working with the hosting facility to provide a better fault tolerant system to avoid this type of service interruption in the future.
