Downtime resolved: 8pm-midnight on 10/6/08

Hi all, If you tried using our site last night, you may have experienced intermittent downtime. We had significant concurrent traffic on our system that ended up locking up some of our front-end servers.

We’ve resolved the immediate issue, but are taking steps to prevent this from affecting us long term:

  • Two additional front end servers to be deployed this week
  • Additional RAM upgrades across front-ends
  • Exploration into cloud-computing solutions to handle traffic spillover

Again, apologies for any issues you may have experienced and know that we are working our hardest to keep downtime at a minimum.
