At this time, we have managed a workaround with Level3 via a different POP in Atlanta, and traffic is again flowing. We are operating with limited upstream connectivity, so performance may be sub optimal until further notice.

The issue in Atlanta has grown to be a of critical nature. The root cause is a major power failure at the Digital Realty / Telx 56 Marietta Street facility in Atlanta which acts as the cross-roads for most all traffic in the region. Although there are other upstream connections in place outside of 56 Marietta, the global nature of the incident at 56 Marietta is causing issues with other upstream connections in and around the region.
We will continue to update this incident as we gain additional information.
