As lots of you seen, AnandTech has spent a number of hours offline right now. We’re nonetheless in restoration mode in the intervening time (as I write this, the location has been restored to a replica from November 25th), however now that our main restoration efforts are accomplished, I wished to give you guys a short replace on the standing of AnandTech.
At round 13:00 UTC (5am PT) right now, the on-site cloud storage for AnandTech’s internet hosting supplier grew to become corrupted. Because of this, AnandTech (and another websites) had been introduced offline. Because of the nature of the corruption and the necessity to start restoration efforts ASAP, we opted to revive the location from an off-site chilly storage backup, slightly than trusting the questionable on-site storage.
That is the primary time we’ve ever needed to execute our off-site information restoration plan earlier than. And whereas it meant AT took a bit longer to revive than can be ideally suited, in the end every part labored out and proved the need for off-site backups.
We’re nonetheless working to revive content material from the previous few days. Articles can be again, however we’ve doubtless misplaced any feedback and consumer account registrations/updates made since noon Friday. Sorry about that! And thanks for bearing with us throughout right now’s outage.
