Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by an outage with our content delivery network that resulted in an overload of nearby datacenters and impacted traffic in the northeastern US and Montreal, Canada.
Our content delivery network provider resolved the hardware issue to restore traffic across all impacted regions.
Investigate methods of increasing network connectivity observability and ways to mitigate regional failures.
