Bitbucket downtime, Amazon and what’s coming

As many of you are well aware, we’ve been experiencing some serious downtime the past couple of days. Starting Friday evening, our network storage became virtually unavailable to us, and the site crawled to a halt.

We’re hosting everything on Amazon EC2, aka. “the cloud”, and we’re also using their EBS service for storage of everything from our database, logfiles, and user data (repositories.)

They were DDOSed and neither them nor Amazon had a clue for 20+ hours.
