Another Outage for FlexiScale Cloud Storage

Cloud storage provider FlexiScale has been hit with another lengthy service outage due to a “core network failure,” and some servers remained offline more than 18 hours after the incident began. FlexiScale, which is a unit of UK hosting company Excalibre,  was offline for several days in August when an employee accidentally deleted one of the main storage volumes during a system upgrade.

The company is posting updates on a status page on the Excalibre web site, which oddly doesn’t appear to be linked anywhere from the FlexiScale site. Customers aren’t happy. (Link via ElasticVapor)
