General Issues
Incident Report for Bitly

Between 0910 and 0932 Friday 6/21 UTC, one of our data center providers had a planned maintenance window. There should have been no impact to our services, but this maintenance caused a degradation of performance for our API and Website.

During this time redirects were completely unaffected and performed as normal. Metrics collection continued to function throughout and no data was lost.

As a result, our engineering team is accelerating existing plans to remove our production system dependency on this data center in order to prevent future outages of this type.
