Muppeth just reported back from the datacenter. Looks like issue was one of the power cables was not fully in the PDU's socket causing reboots. Everything seems now firmly in it's place so we hope no more unexpected downtimes like this.
We deeply apologize for the downtime and hope your week has started better for you then for us. We wish ourself and all of you smooth, productive, chill, and happy rest of the week!
** Update **
Looks like the engineers in the datacenter while fixing the issue with the cables, unfortunately rebooted two other servers. Shit happens but we have another downtime to deal with. Hopefully this did not caused major issues with data and we did not loose anthing in the process. They say the cables now should be firmly connected so hopefully the problems are solved.
Looks like power loss this night is causing some issues with the disk array. We are investigating
