Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.
|−|I just got up after actually gettnig some decent sleep, and reading through the comments here.The power outage was something we had no control over, neither the fixing off it, so it was particularly hard for us since we were unable to do much other than try and find out information. Once the power came on we realized our core router ( which has both A/B redundant power feeds) was down, and this should never have gone down. Once that was back online , and we rebooted the switches, a majority of customers were back online.At last we were able actually do something, the worst part is being down and being unable to do anything about it.Most people were up fairly quickly at this point, but some had dead HDDs, or similar and took up to another 24 hours or more to get up and running. One of the host servers had no network connectivity due to lost configs which took some time to bring online.Whilst the outage was bad, and we will be looking into what happened more, I do not ever recall any other outages at Dallas in the entire time i have worked at Rimuhosting (many years now) .We are going to be looking into what we can do to prevent future, we have already talked a few ideas over in the brief breaks we had .You probably also need to ask what you can do to setup your own fail over. There are several methods available from VPS duplication, to a cheap/free hosting and DNS changes. i will make a blog post up in the next couple of days and try and cover a few methods for you. |+|

CEM very interested in senieg some comparisons on how they might be able to deliver more reliably to the big three hotmail, yahoo, gmail than existing servers.We're in various feedback loops (MS and a couple of other providers) but have not had any success getting Yahoo to co-operate, despite emails being signed appropriately, SPF and various header issues have all been taken care of.
