Say hello to Nodejitsu's new Status Page!
On the Status Page you can get info at a glance on how the cloud is doing. We wanted to give everyone a central place to go where they could check on the status of Nodejitsu services. After all, no one wants to spend valuable time debugging an issue that's actually caused by problems that Nodejitsu is experiencing. Is there any better way to blame someone else than through a beautiful web page? I'm joking. Kind of.
The Status Page has four sections, each representing how a different aspect of our cloud is doing.
The first of these is API which refers to the status of our main Nodejitsu API - if this is having issues, deploys and account-related actions won't be working, but running apps will be unaffected.
Next are Deploys, which shows the status of deploying new versions of your application. Deploys will be down if the API or Database is experiencing issues - or we might occasionally have scheduled maintenance.
Then there's the Database, which refers to the database we use internally to store application and user data. As with an API outage, this will prevent deploys and account-related actions from working, but running apps will not be affected.
Finally, we have the Balancers, which refers to the status of our load balancers.
If you're looking for the Status Page on the Nodejitsu website, scroll to the bottom navigation; it'll be the last link under 'PAAS'.
Of course, the status page is a Flatiron project. On the database side of things, Redis was used, just to mix it up. As always, if you experience any issues with the status page, or anything else on Nodejitsu, please let us know either in IRC at #nodejitsu on irc.freenode.net or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
