Typepad unplanned service outage today

Six Apart’s hosted blogging service TypePad was down for one hour today. Typepad is one of the largest blogging platforms in the world, competing with the likes of Blogger.com and WordPress.com.

According to our monitoring of Typepad.com (via our Pingdom website monitoring service), the website itself was unavailable for 59 minutes, starting at 07:37 a.m. CET. A short 3-minute outage followed 10 minutes later, but the website has been stable after that.

The Typepad.com website uses the same platform as the TypePad blogs, so it’s likely that all blogs were affected to some degree.

The Six Apart status page gave the following information, citing a failed router as the cause:

Update at 12:08AM PDT: Blogs are now loading. We are continuing to monitor TypePad closely.

Midnight: A bad power supply in one of our core routers is preventing some TypePad blogs from displaying. We are onsite working to resolve the problem.

11:40PM: The TypePad application is back online, and we are working to restore blogs currently.

11:28 PM PDT: TypePad is currently down. We are working to restore service and blogs as soon as possible. Updates to follow.
