Unplanned downtime

Posted on: February 18, 2007

Url.com was down for just under 2 hours today (0926-1111 hrs PST). We apologize for the inconvenience. We were already investigating into better fault tolerant architectures to try to prevent this from happening again, so this is a good wake up call to action.

We are seriously considering Amazon’s EC2. It definitely seems like a great long-term solution, although we are worried that it’s very new and still in beta. Anyone know of how other websites have fared with EC2? Ruby on Rails deployments would be especially pertinent.
