Hello hachydermians!

Today we experienced our first production outage 🎉 was offline for about 60 minutes today.

Thank you to @Taniwha for restoring the service.

We have written up a related post mortem.

Very exciting that we had our first outage today. More from us as we scale our service and become more intimate with the Mastodon software.
