Status update: servers are starting to come online now, and the maintenance period is coming to a close. We thank everyone for their patience during this time and apologize that it went for a few more hours than expected.

What happened is that we had to migrate across all of our servers from towards . The reason? The backups that the former was generating just weren't reliable enough.

Plus it took TWO FULL DAYS to generate backups for only three machines, despite the fact that we have 24+ servers. So can you just imagine that?

Ideally, we want backups to happen on a daily basis and this just wasn't possible beforehand.
