Whew, my blog was down for about half an hour. Very frustrating. Demonstrates one of the weaknesses on being on a beta service (WordPress.com is still in development). Yesterday we were over at F5 meeting with the guys who make their hardware and services. They demonstrated to us how to build a service that’ll stay up no matter what happens to your servers.
Service uptimes are very important, and even more important when you are betting your business on them.
When you are looking at a blog tool for your business, you better make sure it has failover to another data center in a different city. Does anyone offer that kind of blog service for a reasonable price?
