The thin red line

What a day. As you have noticed that today was not our best moment. The instability that followed the deployment of today’s patch was related to the little margin we currently have to play with on Tranquility.

Today’s patch contained some SQL statements that were just a little bit more resource intensive than before. As we are pushing against the I/O limit on our Fiber Channel Disk Array, a little error can slam us against the roof, that is what happened today.

As can be seen in the latest news we have secured the components for eliminating the I/O bottleneck. Once that has been done we have much more room to operate and blunders like today shouldn’t happen again.

I sincerely apologize for the situation today and hope you forgive us once again.
