Yesterday, on Tuesday 2019-11-06 at 11:23 UTC, we experienced an unexpected outage of our web services. Service was completely restored at 12:08 UTC.
The incident was quickly found to be caused by human factor. A manually run database maintenance process accidentally caused a mission critical part of the Lyyti database to become locked and inaccessible. Without access to this component, our web services were unable to serve our users until the process completed.
As a direct result to this incident, we are actively working on improving our internal processes in order to mitigate the risk of incidents such as this one occurring in the future.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this outage. If you have any further questions regarding this incident, please do not hesitate to contact our customer support.
