Earlier this morning, one of our hosting providers experienced a brief interruption of primary power to their site due to an external infrastructure issue. The datacentres switched over to UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) power whilst our backup generators started up for prolonged backup power. Mains power to the site returned after a few moments, however although power was quickly fully restored to the datacentres they experienced a network issue that occurred as a result of this interruption to service.
This affected all services.
The engineers restored many of the services immediately, however some services were still offline as I write and investigation is ongoing.
We would like to take the opportunity to sincerely apologise for the disruption this has caused, and to thank you for your patience.
