Now celebrating! 6 datacenters, 2 years, no outages!

We're celebrating 2 years no outages! 100% network availability! While this is a time to rejoice at the fruits of our hard work, there was of course the exception of our Kawasaki POP on 3/11 when the 8.9 earthquake hit off the coast in the Tohoku area Japan. Perhaps just take a moment to meditate and remember that day, considering how a horrific event can drastically flip the world or the lives as we know it up-side-down in an instant. We appreciate the present measure of peace, and our freedom to go to work, and go home, to have and hold those whom we love. We'll keep looking forward to a world and society free of man-made, and natural disaster, and pray for those who've lost their lives and loved ones.
