Well, i have two in mind.....It seems now that everything is going slowly back to normal for Facebook services! Now let’s see how the “who’s going to be guilty of this” game follows..
Indeed, but I find this to be... demonstrative, for sure. Facebook is supposed to operate at high-tier 6-sigma, and connects to a network of 6-sigma service providers. It works out to about 1m47s of downtime a year. This is achieved by multiple layers of redundancy etc, so that every component can fail flawlessly without affecting the effectiveness of the system. RAID drive arrays, alternate server towers lending a shoulder under load or distributed mirrors switching in when the primaries go down... at every step, it's incredibly thought through, and every time I talk to my brother (systems architect working remotely for a big-tech related firm) I realize that they've already thought 3 steps ahead of the challenges I underline.It seems now that everything is going slowly back to normal for Facebook services!
