Old data center problems continuing (resolved)
We are continuing to experience intermittent problems at Hurricane Electric, the data center that we’ve been using until now. Fortunately, as previously mentioned, we are in the process of moving to a new data center.
Some customers have already been moved to the new data center, and they have not seen any of these problems. We are moving the remaining sites as quickly as possible.
We are extremely upset with the attacks that have been hitting Hurricane Electric, and consider these outages to be unacceptable. It definitely appears that Hurricane Electric is being specifically targeted. You can watch their Twitter feed to see information about the latest attacks and the steps they’re taking to fix the attacks, as well as what they’re doing to try to protect themselves against further ones. While it’s undoubtedly of little comfort, it’s worth noting that these attacks are not directed at our customers or at us, but at Hurricane Electric in general. You can see that other large companies hosted at Hurricane Electric are also being affected, such as Linode.
We apologize for the inconvenience these outages have caused, and hope to have all Web sites moved to the new data center very soon.
