Mimecast Outage

This just in — reports coming from twitter are showing that there has been a major outage in the Mimecast data center. Mimecast  recently raised a $62.5 million  funding round for their cloud-based email management platform. I was alerted to the mimecast outage on twitter by  @Jon_G_UK  who appears to be a customer:

We’re not in the business of pointing fingers at others — but in the Disaster Recovery market, it’s incumbent upon us to take stock of the types of failures and outages that happen, and to break them down so that we can be sure that Zerto’s disaster recovery solution will be able to handle outages of any kind.

Would we tell people not to use a cloud-based or SaaS offering? No — the benefits often outweigh the costs, and all data centers are prone to outages. This one, with what seems like over 125 UK law firms that could be impacted, will certainly teach us many lessons about continuity plans.
