At 10:00 AM the hard drive became unresponsive. We are currently whipping the machine and will begin doing an OS Reload, cPanel Install and restore from backups. We will update this post with more details as we have them.

Current ETA is 24 hours.

There is a staff member on site who will be working on the issue until it is fixed.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

If your account has been restored and it is missing something in it then please add it back. So if an email is missing then add it back for example.

Vancouver Datacenter Issues

Data Center

At approximately 2:00 PM PST the data center in Vancouver with the Diddy, Apollo and Artemis server were down. The issue was for the entire data center and their staff were on site and working on a resolution immediately. Servers were back online at approximately 6:21 PM PST. We will update this post once more details of the issue are conveyed to us.

This is the email I got from the Data Center as to why…

As you may already know, there has been a major power outage in downtown Vancouver. At about 10:00AM this morning, a major transformer caught fire and exploded in an underground service area. A number of buildings, as well as traffic lights, are without power in the downtown area. Currently, sources are saying the power will be restored by 3:00PM. However, rumours indicate that this is not likely.

Serenity is currently operational. Temperature is also becoming a concern.

The servers went offline do to temperature issues. The power now being restored to the building means the servers are now back online as the AC is now working fully.

Data Center

At aproximately 3:00 AM PST the datacenter in Vancouver with the Diddy, Apollo and Artemis server were down. The issue was for the entire data center and their staff were onsite and working on a resolution immediately. Servers were back online at approximately 5:00 AM PST. We will update this post once more details of the issue are conveyed to us.

Update: I received an email from the data center saying the issue was with the A/C and the building turning off the cold water. I am not sure how that would cause our servers to be unavailable so I have asked for more details.
