GauchoSpace was unavailable on Tuesday, February 25 from ~ 11:50 AM to Wednesday at 12:30 AM.
This unplanned outage was a result of a node failure in the storage cluster GauchoSpace uses for storage; due to the distributed nature of this file storage, no data was lost, but it took a very long time for the storage cluster to re-balance the data and heal itself in order to be accessible again. We are evaluating configuration changes and/or adding additional resources to the storage cluster in order to prevent an extended outage in the future.
