US EAST data center issue
Incident Report for Kinsta

This downtime event was caused by a large-scale DDoS attack that targeted our infrastructure in the region. Our sysadmin team was able to mitigate most of the attack, however, some downtime did occur due to the initial surge in traffic.

The attacker frequently changed methods of attack throughout the event which caused intermittent downtime as our sysadmin team adjusted our mitigation efforts.
