What causes this?
How many more times are we going to see one major CDN issue take out a considerably large chunk of websites? Is it purely that it saves money and "only happens now and again" to justify it or is there no way to have two of these things?
I look at the Fastly status page and it says this which does not inspire confidence.
"Fastly’s network has built-in redundancies and automatic failover routing to ensure optimal performance and uptime. But when a network issue does arise, we think our customers deserve clear, transparent communication so they can maintain trust in our service and our team."
What happened with the failover? Backup services? I know nothing of any of this so I know I'm being overly simple. Anyone care to educate me?
