  • 28-May Multiple hour failure due to a casualty at GSI Hosting. Affected all non-AT&T users.

-- At approximately 1:05pm CDT on Wednesday and lasting until about 3:50pm, GSI experienced a network outage affecting multiple clients. This outage was caused by the hardware/firmware failure of a device owned by one of GSI’s carriers that provides the fiber ring between GSI facilities. A third link between facilities was brought online until the main ring could be brought back online. Outage Timeline:

1:05pmSystems Report Down – Severity 1 issue identified and all hands respond
3:50pmBackup Link established and systems come back up for most clients
6:10pmMain inter-facility link fully functional. Some clients restored, but pending maintenance window to bring back into full production
5/29 3:30amFiber Ring fully functional and all traffic rerouted to Ring

This was a major service-level event and a full scale review is being undertaken by the ISP to ensure the point-of-failure and fail-over systems are re-engineered to prevent further such occurrences.
