GitHub outage latest for around 23 minutes and now the site has resumed normal stable operations.
GerritHub.io and his users have not been impacted by the GitHub outage, everything went smoothly and the cache TTL extension avoided any negative effects on our systems. Replication to GitHub resumed smoothly without any misalignment caused by the the outage.
Will this be the last GitHub outage? Have they learned how to implement effectively DB roll-outs with Continuous Delivery practices?
It would be very interesting if Shawn Pearce could put together a presentation on how Continuous Delivery is achieved for Gerrit Code Review at Google, avoiding downtime even during DB upgrades and roll-outs. Possibly GitHub could be inspired by us 🙂
