DDos Mitigation update

Our network operations and systems teams have been working non-stop for the last ~36 hours toward a resolution of the Atlanta datacenter DDoS attack and resulting outage. Our hosting provider has acquired a dedicated transit link that is now directly connected to the our network, and we are waiting for our transit provider to apply DDoS mitigation hardening, after which we believe that Atlanta should be restored to full service. We will keep you updated as things progress.

DDoS Status Update

Around two hours after bringing things back online, attacks on Atlanta have started again which are affecting the entire datacenter. At this time we are being taken back offline to attempt further mitigation.
Our Network Engineers are still working with our upstream provider on mitigating this latest DDoS attack. We’ll post an update here when we believe connectivity has normalized.
