Topic: [VPS] Atlanta Outage, October 2, 2012

On October 2, 2012 the facility hosting our Atlanta VPS server experienced connectivity issues, multiple moments of unavailability were experienced during this time. We had been in contact with the provider and the issue was to be believed to fixed but hours later the connectivity was affected a second time, this time for much longer.

After reviewing all our local logs we were able to provide exact timing and extent of the issues and submit them to the provider for further information on the cause. It has been determined another user on the same network was the target of an attack that covered an entire /24 subnet. The attack had heavily saturated a number of the transit uplinks.

We apologize for any inconvenience the outage has caused and as of 5:42 AM EST we have not seen any further issues with connectivity.
