NetHosted.co.uk - 32hrs and ongoing...

Posted by sonicboomboy, 05-01-2005, 08:51 AM
Hi all, As I am not a web host I wondered if someone could give me some independant opinions of this outage at nethosted.co.uk which is still a serious problem 32 hours after detection. The thread on their website is here: nethosted.co.uk/topic560 The host claims: "It is extremely unfortunate turn of events that could not have been either predicted or prevented." Backups on the same drive: "Q: Andrew, correct me if I am wrong but are you saying you have the backups stored on the same disks that are part of the RAID 1? A: Yes we had them stored on a backup partition on the drives that were in RAID(1)." Any comments would be appreciated, Thanks, Concerned customer of Net Hosted.

32 hours down is really poor

Backing up to the same mirrored aray is a quick way to kill off your hard drives. Either run them as mirrors (raid1) in which case individual drive failure wont matter, or backup to a separate disk - better yet both so when a client calls up and says " err , i err deleted my website this morning " you can always get it back for them
