The Dreamhost outage yesterday is now resolved. Four separate issues all came to light at roughly the same time, taking a good portion of Dreamhosts services offline. I personally assumed the Dreamhost outage was due to the poor connectivity between Level3 and Internap lastnight. See this image:
It doesn’t sound like the Dreamhost issues had anything to do with their connectivity providers, but I’m glad they’re back up and running. I wonder who Dreamhost gets their connections from, probably a few different providers.
Is the Dreamhost outage the cause for high search rankings of “World War III” on Technorati? No, but it is pretty amusing that Dreamhost is one of the top technorati searches. It somehow doesn’t fit in with the rest of the top searches: “World War III”, “Lebanon”, “Israel”, and of course, “Bush”. Where’s “Hezbollah”?? heh.
