Sendgrid’s outage impacted our notification systems
2013/03/21 Leave a comment
Our notification systems use Sendgrid for email delivery. Overall, Sendgrid has been very reliable and a solid service provider. Today Sendgrid had a fairly significant outage, and that has impacted the timely delivery of some of our email notifications. Obviously for a service like ours this is a big deal.
We are in the process of reviewing our notifications infrastructure to see how our failover systems can be improved to make sure our notifications always get out in a timely fashion. Our apologies to our users who were impacted by this problem.
If you have any questions about this issue, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
