GitLab Restored 11 Nov 2019 10:30PM EDT
The GitLab service (https://gitlab.partners.org/) has been restored after a major outage.
A major storage outage incident took place during a scheduled storage controller upgrade task. The incident affected GitLab as well as many other systems. The GitLab system was unavailable from approximately 9:50PM on Nov 10th until 10:50PM on Nov 11th. Due to the large amount of data in the GitLab repositories and other connected storage systems, the disk check and repair operation took much longer than expected, which caused the extended outage. The issue was subsequently compounded by a networking-related reconfiguration (on the storage-side).
At this point we do not believe that any data was affected. Please double-check your repositories, though!
We appreciate your continued usage and support of the service! We are working to make improvements of the service to avoid instabilities such as this one in the future.
