Check out our nines

A site or system’s uptime is measured in nines. At Wikispaces, we aim for four nines: 99.99%, or 52.6 minutes a year. Five nines is our dream: 99.999%, or a measly 5.26 minutes of downtime.

When we checked this month, we saw that our one-year availability is 99.9979%, and that’s within rounding distance of those mythical five nines!

99.9979% of the time, Wikispaces was reachable over the network to our customers. That corresponds to 11 minutes of unplanned downtime over the year, and counts only whole-site outages. We had a few brief slowdowns, search problems, and RSS feed issues that had no impact on most users.

Savvy readers will note that we had zero minutes of scheduled downtime over the year as well. Because of the scale at which we operate and the number of visitors who depend on Wikispaces, we’ve worked hard to roll out all changes to the site without interruption.

The status page is a great place to look if you’re wondering whether a slowdown is a problem on your end or something system-wide.
