[Status] Cantus Non-Operational?

Looking for a bit more than customer support, and want to learn more about what cryptostorm is , what we've been announcing lately, and how the cryptostorm network makes the magic? This is a great place to start, so make yourself at home!

Can confirm. Connectivity problems started around 2-3 days ago.

I'm still a bit out of the operational loop, but I did overhear df discussing this issue yesterday and I know there's been some testing work going on meanwhile.

That datacentre does get quite a but of packet shrapnel from DDoS attacks running across the backbone interconnects in Frankfurt, but normally that's transient - a few hours here and there. This seems longer-term.

I'll open another staff ticket to be sure there's a resolution quickly... but I suspect that's already well underway if not nearly complete.

Thx for picking this up so quickly!

I had a server booked in Frankfurt last week and suffered from many downtimes. So this seems to be a pretty massive attack if things are still this bad. I had to ultimately cancle the server because the constant DDOS rendered it unusable. I hope you can achive a better solution with your knowledge. Even though Cantus is only 100MBit/s and a upgrade would be neat, it was always very reliable and so it became my favorite node. <3

Cantus is also the most horsey node which makes it super awesome by default.
