Wesabe site is back up

by

The Wesabe site is currently down due to a hard drive failure. [Update: we’re back up, see below for details.] We’ll be back up as soon as we restore data to a new server. Apologies for the inconvenience. We’ll post an update here as soon as we have more information.

Update 2:15p: We’ve found the problem (RAID card failure, if you’re interested), and we expect to be back up in 30 minutes or so.

Update 3:10p: We’re still working on the restore, and expect to be another 15-30 minutes.

Update 3:45p: The machine is back up, but unfortunately the problem caused the hard drives to fail. We’re restoring from backup and we believe no data has been lost. At this point we’re estimating another hour until the backup is restored. Again, our apologies for the downtime and the delay in getting back online.

Update: Ok, we’re back! We recovered from backups, and no data was lost. The search index is still updating itself, so you might see odd results for the next few minutes — but everything else should be fine. Thanks for your patience!

    Ouch. I’ve had more problems with hardware RAIDs….. Of course, Startupping is hosted on a box with a hardware RAID, so I guess I can’t talk. But in general, I like Linux software RAIDs better. Anyways, I’m going to go knock wood for a bit and check the status of my RAID.
