Welp, about 3 days into using Media Temple’s new (gs) system to host this blog, I’ve hit some fairly significant down-time. Wow, not a good showing at all. I mean, isn’t that the point of the entire grid-server concept? Aren’t we supposed to be highly redundant and not dependent on any single piece of hardware?

Looks like that’s not the case, according to the incident details. Apparently a single faulty storage system was able to bring my site down, along with who knows how many others…

I’ve heard so many great things about Media Temple, and I’m just going to assume that this is a settling-in issue with a brand new service. I only hope that they don’t prove me wrong…
