Several Adobe services were down or unreachable for many of you over the last 24 hours. The failure happened during database maintenance activity and affected services that require users to log in with an Adobe ID.
We want to assure you that this was not security related – none of your information or content was lost or exposed.
First, and most importantly, we want to apologize for this outage because we know how critical our services are to you and how disruptive it’s been to those of you who felt the impact. We understand that the time it took to restore service has been frustrating, but we wanted to be as thorough as possible. We have identified the root cause of this failure and are putting standards in place to prevent this from happening again.
We are aware that we didn’t meet your expectations (or ours) today. For this, we apologize. Thanks for bearing with us as we worked to resolve this – and know that we will do better.
Updated 11:20am PDT, May 16 2014 : Added information to clarify outage was not security related.
Join us for our second Lunchtime Studios session where Terry Ryan will teach you the basics of Responsive Web Design and introduce you to Edge Reflow. Getting websites to work on mobile devices continues to be a challenge and one method of tackling this problem is Responsive Web Design (creating a site that changes the way it appears across many screen sizes). With Edge Reflow, designing responsive sites is much less painful.
