      This twitter pic of theirs is ironic!

    • Looks like Marietta 56 is also down. It would appear that Atlanta has lost some power. Also, on the Marietta 56 website, it says:

      I wonder if they've ever... TESTED... their backup systems.

      It's a power problem =P

      From CC: "There has been a power event at the facility resulting in the loss of all or part of the power to the DC floor."

      UGVPS is also down in Atlanta because of the power outage :(

      Wait, ALL of 56 Marietta?...

      55 is up and fine right across the street. Cyber Wurx tech support told me "there is major construction on that part of the downtown area for the streetcar project". Could be related.

      I don't see what one has to do with the other. That was an exploit that affected other providers as well, this is a power outage. I don't see how CVPS would want to do this intentionally.

      Do you think the hack was also CVPS's intention, are you on crack or some shit? After the long cvps downtime and data loss in atlanta we have more downtime and probably partial data loss!

    • ramnetramnet Member, Provider

      I would add, this is also affecting us.

      55 minutes so far. Hope it gets fixed soon.

    • I'm just going to tag @RyanD, maybe they are already working on it and he can potentially provide us with status updates

      @erhwegesrgsr read my comment again, and no, I don't like name calling.

      However I'll explain it for a lesser mind:
      1) I was saying that for the exploit/hack CVPS was not at fault.
      2) For the power outage CVPS is not at fault.

      It's just bad luck.

      You know, instead of complaining all the time, just switch providers maybe? Oh, that's right, you like low prices. Well guess what: sometimes bad things happen on a budget. The last two mishaps were not CVPS's fault. And you should back up your data off-site, not rely on someone else to do it for you. Again, you don't want to spend any money for that either. Well, too bad then, because things ain't gonna get any better for you.

    • qpsqps Member, Provider

      We (QuickPacket) are at 55 Marietta and we are not impacted.

      AFAIK, 56 Marietta is not impacted either.

      We are in 34 peachtree, 4th floor.

      They're related because it is more downtime - not placing blame on anyone. Just saying - it sucks. Atlanta was one of the hardest hit in the CVPS hack, and now it is down again. At this point I wish I had picked another data center when I bought my VPS.

    • @liquidice said:

      You're not alone. I just got mine all reinstalled and was about to take a backup. Granted, the two events are not at all related, its been very difficult for me to trust CVPS at this point. I've tried several times, but it seems there is always something that crops up right when I'm wanting to use the VPS for something important to me. At least Chris has been fairly understanding about things, can't say his support staff has.

      @liquidice @eggster we all love to kick chris a bit but let's not :) not here and not now :) It's not his fault, my company is also affected by the power outage, ramhost, vps.net, and more. Keep the CVPS related talk in the cvps thread or w/e, im interested in hearing updates about the outage in ATL because i've been affected for over an hour now, not about the cvps SVM incident.

      Thanked by 1Spirit
    • @marcm - You're correct, things do happen outside of a company's control. It seems to happen to CVPS more often than not, at least in my eyes.

    • 3 of our machines are down due to this. I wonder if there was any backup power?

    • Sorry - my intention was not to blame CVPS, Chris or anything - I was just saying it stinks that Atlanta is down and therefore my VPS has now had 2 major outages in 2 weeks time.

    • UGVPSUGVPS Member

      Update posted on WHT by Ryan with coloat.

      That is correct, there is currently a power outage at 34 Peachtree impacting our operations at that site.

      There were multiple utility failures and we had transitioned to generator after the first, it continued to bounce up and down after that initial fault.

      While running on generator the generator experienced a fault and failed.

      UPS Battery supply of 15 Minutes was subsequently exhausted after that point.

      We are still currently without utility power and are working in parallel on the restoration of both Utility and Generator power.

      Our helpdesk is online and available and will be posting further updates directly with clients in our helpdesk.

      We have all hands on deck standing by to ensure a speedy recovery as soon as power is restored to the datacenter floor.

      Thank you!

      @UGVPS, @eggster, @liquidice and @erhwegesrgsr: I want to offer a very simple, unbiased and balanced perspective. For one, I believe that people love to bash Chris and Chicago VPS just for the hell of it. If this company is so bad, or evil, or I don't know, unreliable, why the heck do people still go back to host with? Just so that they can then be back on LET and complain? Amongst the products that CVPS provides, they also offer budget OpenVZ VPS servers. They also offer higher end products like Xen VPS servers (and prices are decent), however I doubt that anyone here wants to pay for those, right? The bottom line is that when you want to spend less for a VPS than for a coup of coffee don't expect the world from it.... and spend $5 on a ServerSync or Backupsy account and backup your data once in a while... that is if you value it.

    • UPS Battery supply of 15 Minutes was subsequently exhausted after that point.

      That's just great, there was a little chance I could shutdown my stuff safely in that time....

      Because they stunt with pricing and that lures in unaware people.

      I still don't see where I blamed CVPS in any of my posts, so I don't know why you're lumping me in with everyone else. All I was saying is my VPS is down - again. Thats a fact. My VPS was down last week, and now again this week. I think I have a right to be upset that it is down - I'm not calling for a refund or saying the service sucks - I just plain old think it is bad luck and not good. What is wrong with stating that? I know stuff happens and things are out of people's control.

      I backed up my data after my VPS came back online earlier this week, and was checking if my scheduled backups were running OK when I noticed my VPS was down.

      Other than last week, I've been perfectly happy with my CVPS.

      Anyway - to UGVPS's point, this is getting further and further off topic. If you feel so obliged feel free to message me or post another thread.

      I hope the power comes back soon.

    • marcmmarcm Member

      Not sure whether that was also aimed at me, as I have a dedi from almost half a grand a month there

      @erhwegesrgsr didn't know, sorry :)

      @joepie91 people also want stuff for next to nothing. Does the expression "something for nothing" ring any bells"? If this wouldn't sell they wouldn't offer it, and if people value their time and data, they will go with something better than budget OpenVZ VPS servers. Still, the last mishap and today's outage aren't CVPS's fault. Of course, this is just my opinion.

    • Well, never thought about it, but obviously a power generator needs redundancy too ;-)

    • marcmmarcm Member

      Sorry for the double post.

      @liquidice - nah, I'm just tired of the same old song. It's like people never miss an opportunity to bash CVPS just because it seems trendy. Well, I think that it's getting old. It's like the lambchop song that never ends:

    • Well, this is what BBU is for on hardware RAID Cards, I suppose. Hopefully they can get stuff back online quickly!

      Fairly useless when the server gets cut off while processing tons of stuff

    • Fair point. At least it will prevent cached writes from being lost. They should start making 1U rack servers with mini-generators installed. Just in case... At least they didn't have this: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/06/08/facebook_cloud_versus_cloud/ happen, like Facebook had happen :P

      @Magiobiwan lots of people skimp on paying for a proper RAID card, let alone a BBU. Others get the RAID card, turn on Write Back Caching, but they never install a BBU. Guess what happens on the first cold reboot / power failure?

      Errr... What about MySQL being killed? Like that doesn't cause data loss...

      Edit: I run more apps that cache a lot to RAM and lose stuff when you force kill it

      Didn't Google request/have a patent on having a PSU inside the server? Regardless whether they do, it's ridiculous to patent that, anyone can come up with that, it's just a pain to maintain large scale.

    • marcmmarcm Member

      @erhwegesrgsr that's true. Having a BBU installed is like a minimum requirement.
