Santa Rosa Data Center – Outage

Beginning tonight at around 4:50PM we experienced a large DDoS attack towards a colocation customer of ours. During this attack you may have noticed little or no connectivity to Sonic members services such as email or members tools and an inability to phone into our support department. The attack is still ongoing but we believe services have been fully restored as of about 7:00PM.
