6 back-to-back power outages hit the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco Tuesday afternoon causing major havoc with popular web services. 365 Main is down, along with craigslist, Netflix, Technorati and SixApart.Link
Reader comment: Adam Glenn says,
I was poking around on 365 Main's website and found this press release ("REDENVELOPE REPORTS TWO YEARS OF CONTINUOUS UPTIME AT 365 MAIN’S SAN FRANCISCO DATA CENTER"). Take a look at the date :)mattyohe says,
AP is reporting that it appears Netflix was not effected by the power outage.Update: sounds like the incident was caused by some sort of weird explosion that led to a big power company outage: Link.
