365 Main datacenter power outage – Six Apart Technorati Craigslist

The Web 2.0 datacenter 365 Main, in the heart of SOMA, just lost power. Sites that are affected include Craigstlist, Technorati, Yelp and all Six Apart properties, TypePad, LiveJournal and Vox.

The only information that seems to be available is at the quite innovative Six Apart twitter stream.

I feel sorry for the operation staff that are going to do the cleanup. Having been there far too many times, the pain of bringing up all your machines can be quite heavy.

If you have any additional information please comment.


Laughingsquid mentions 6 power outages in SOMA, which seems quite a bit more likely than a drunk employee. I live close to the datacenter and I cannot reach my home network.

San Francisco Chronicle reports SOMA was hit by repeating power outages.

Apparently Colo 4 was the one that blew.

** UPDATE **

Since I am a cynical operation veteran, I need to link to this press release where 365 Main congratulates themselves on 2 years of 100% uptime.

*** UPDATE 3:47 PM ***

Technorati is back, around 2 hours of downtime.

*** Update 3:53 PM ***

Yelp is live again.

*** Update 4:13 PM (by Jesse Robbins) ***
People using LiveJournal OpenID will be unable to authenticate to other sites until service has been restored. Are you affected by this? Please put a note in the comments explaining where and how.

*** Update 4:36 PM ***

It appears like TypePad is back

*** Update 5:06 PM ***

And Craigslist joins the gang of online services.
