30,000 customers in the San Francisco area lost power today at about 1:50pm PDT, in a series of power failures which knocked out a major datacenter hub: 365 Main. The hub controls servers for many social media sites, including Technorati
and all Six Apart
properties, including TypePad
. (6A's twitter stream
has updates.) More here
Amusingly enough, 365 Main tempted fate and released a press release today
patting themselves on the back for "two years of 100-percent uptime".
