Wow! Murphy hit us hard today. Two of our servers failed simultaneously. Other — non-related — problems made us hunt down the wrong causes for a while. In the end, Doodle was not available for quite some time today. We apologize for the downtime and the inconvience this has caused.
Here’s the good news:
- All systems are back online.
- There was no data loss whatsoever.
- We have used this opportunity to add another server and to optimize a number of system parameters to make sure that Doodle will run even more reliably and responsively in the future.
- We have contingency plans for a number of scenarios in place, and it’s reassuring to see that they work. We’ll just have to be even faster next time.
