May Mimecast Outage
Mimecast, the U.K.-based provider of cloud cybersecurity services, said in May that a “major power outage” caused its North American grid to suffer problems causing delays and “degraded service” for customers.
“We can confirm we experienced a major power outage in one of our US data centers that impacted all power supply sources, including the backup generators, which in turn caused a cascading issue and resulted in degraded performance,” Mimecast said at the time on its status page.
“Midway through our Disaster Recovery Process, the power was restored which complicated our ability to recover. As of now, services are available and we are processing email but customers may still experience delays until the backlog clears. We sincerely apologize for the extended outage and the disruption caused,” it continued.
