I’m in our data center today and tomorrow, doing maintenance and replacing some hardware on a bunch of our database servers to help prevent issues like we had last week from happening again. We only take down servers during the week if absolutely necessary, and this is one of those cases. This is because we will be in San Francisco for most of next week, and then I will be taking another small trip unrelated to work.
The last thing we want is to have a problem while we’re on the road, because it may take much longer than normal to resolve depending on what we’re doing at the time of such an incident (not to mention it’s a much more of a PITA to do that type of thing while traveling).
Any given server may be down for as long as 3 hours. Data will not be lost during this time, however when a server does come back online, it will take it a while to catch back up with real time.
Our #1 priority is to make Clicky as reliable as possible for you. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
