Cisco website went offline

Posted by iwgcr

For about three hours, Cisco website went offline. Netcraft.com report this outage and inform that it was due to human error. Cisco said:

“”The issue occurred during preventative maintenance of one of our data centers when a human error caused an electrical overload on the systems. This caused Cisco.com and other applications to go down. Because of the severity of the overload, the redundancy measures in some of the applications and power systems were impacted as well, though the system did shut down as designed to protect the people and the equipment. As a result, no data were lost and no one was injured. Cisco has plans already in process to add additional redundancies to increase the resilience of these systems”

Netcraft.com also provide performance charts and statistics for Cisco.com on this page.
