Los Angeles DC - Data Center Outage (05/14/2010) (RESOLVED)

May 14, 2010 at 1:47 PM

At approximately 12:30 PM CST the data center in Los Angeles, CA experienced a network and/or power failure. We are aware of this issue and will do everything we can to help resolve this issue as quickly as possible. At the current time we do not have an ETA for service restoration. We will update you as soon as we know more.

If you have any questions, please e-mail us at support@geekstorage.com.

UPDATE:

Service has been restored at approximately 01:05 PM CST. We are not aware of the cause of today's outage, but we will find out and let you know.

UPDATE:

We've heard back from the data center regarding the cause of the downtime today:

"Todays network issue was related to a faulty switch card which took down one of the vlan routers. Unfortunately the errors in the logs looked to be related to network changes made yesterday and delayed diagnosing the real issue. Once network engineers reversed all changes made yesterday and the network continued having issues the decision was made to swap the card. Once the card initialized and came online traffic began flowing normally again.

In an effort to prevent further issues, we have setup a planed maintenance window for tomorrow morning (Saturday May 14th) between 2AM PST to 4AM PST. During this window there will be two to three service disruptions of 15-20 minutes each as multiple network switches are upgraded."
