Yesterday evening, January 31, a service to store code Networks were unavailable. It turns out that the system administrator accidentally… deleted almost everything. Made mistakes at different stages of copying databases from one server to another server, the sysadmin from the Netherlands started deleting data from the primary server. When the process was stopped out of almost 300 GB of data "survived" only 4.5 GB.
Was Mistakenly erased the database, which contained change requests documentation and project code users; user repository (repository) was untouched. Representatives of the Networks database restore. Thus in Networks note that the company did not help none of the five systems, storage and backups. In one case, the stored data is triggered with an error, causing backup was not created. While the company had no warning system error when creating backup files.
Now the company has armed with one of the backups that were created manually for six hours before the incident. With it, the company is trying to recover the data.
Networks was created in 2014 and trying to compete with such platforms as GitHub and Atlassian. The advantage of Networks is that it distributes free of your tools to store code and allows other organizations to create their own repository-based system Networks with the addition of native functions.
It is unknown how many users ' data will be restored intact, but backup 6-hour entity for a service of this kind is a very long time.
