System Downtime Report: 1st to 3rd August 2015

Period of Downtime:

Saturday 1st August 2015 20:00 BST, to Monday 3rd August 2015 12:00 BST

Reason for Downtime:

An issue developed affecting a large data storage array which resulted in our primary server becoming unresponsive on the 1st August 2015 at approximately 20:00 BST. Our three independent monitoring systems failed to identify this downtime resulting in an extended period of downtime before the issue was investigated. Our primary server was brought back online on the 2nd August, and backup/restoration processes were restarted around 24 hours after the initial failure.
 
At this time the affected data storage array is offline whilst it is performing integrity checks, as a result some customer backups are unavailable.
 
UPDATE 12:00 BST: The affected data storage array is now back online and all customer backups are now available. We have no reason to believe any data has been disrupted, though please check your backups and notify us immediately if you notice any issues.

Future Prevention:

We have increased the sensitivity of our proactive monitoring system and introduced new monitoring criteria to improve the likelyhood that such issues will be detected in advance in the future. We will be reviewing all our monitoring systems to identify how to prevent such failures from re-occurring. We will also be releasing an update to the myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin to address connection issues reported by several customers.
 

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by this downtime!
