On August 6th there was a brief connection interruption for some of our users of the NY data center. A route maintenance action had an unforeseen consequence. The problem has been fixed, and we have reviewed and updated our maintenance procedures to avoid events of this nature in the future.

Aside from this event everything worked perfect in August.

Throughout the month we continued to be impressed by the recently added connectivity upgrade. Both our constant tests as well as the network performance data of our clients show impressive improvements. Specially since we weren’t exactly slow before this makes us very happy. We will continue on the path to make sure that every client sees as much of their available bandwidth (no matter how high it is) to our data centers.
