Saturn & Storm: Corrupted MBR

On a routine audit, we found that the MBR (Master Booting Record) on the hard drives of the servers “Saturn” (VPS) and “Storm” (shared) got corrupted. It means that if the servers are rebooted the server’s OS will not work because its partition is destroyed. We first tired to fix it but it seems not possible. Now we are in the process of migrating the VPS containers as well as the shared hosting accounts out of their respective servers.

We expect to fix this issue within next 24 hours. People will be facing downtime due to this, but there is no data loss. However there is a possiblity that this might take more than 24 hrs to fix complete as the amount of data is quite read more….

Curtis Server outage due to hard-drive errors.

We are currently experiencing HDD issue in the server Curtis since yesterday night and are working quickly to resolve the problem. Earlier it seems to be a minor network issue and the cable was replaced immediately, but after detailed investigation it is found that the HDD is giving errors. We expect to fix this issue within next 12 hours. However, there is a strong probability of data loss, not entirely but partially as only one of the three HDD in that server is having the trouble.

We deeply regret this situation and are sorry for the inconvenience caused. We will keep updating this post with every ongoing development.
