    mosso down again

    I decided to give mosso the benefit of the doubt and a month's trial (or so).

    It's been down so far today for over an hour. The ENTIRE mosso web, including their own pages.

    Anyone got any idea whats going on???

    Apparently a massive DDos. They said it caused 1000x spike in connections. Most of the time it was up, just very degraded. Sounds like Rackspace anti-Ddos was instituted and took care of it.

    This is the first issue I have seen in a long while since I have been with them.

    Everything been stable since they announced it had been mitigated this morning.

    So because it uses a cluster a DDoS on another site could affect the entire network correct? Or are they able to isolate a problem and not let it affect other customers?

    Not sure. I will post the formal response we get. They seemed to indicate that it was abnormally distributed which made it hard to isolate.

    That isn't because it uses a cluster. No matter what you use, a massive DDOS can saturate your pipes. The solution? Fatter pipes and routers that can handle it But even then the server will be overworked with requests.
