At 11:47 AM ET / 15:47 PM UTC we had a load balancing cluster failure in the US-W region. Automation removed this device automatically from receiving production traffic, however other POPs in the region may have been overloaded as a result, causing undesired traffic routing, packet loss and latency.

At this time all traffic has been rebalanced and is operating normally. We will be returning the US-W load balancing cluster to service shortly after final analysis.

If you are currently encountering issues, please create a support case at so we may investigate further.

We are currently investigating reports of degraded network performance including additional latency and packet loss across portions of our network. Engineers are actively investigating the issue at this time. We will post updates here as they become available. Thank you for your patience as we work to restore service to normal levels as quickly as possible.
