A few days before the OVHCloud IPO, scheduled for this Friday on Euronext Paris, the sites hosted at OVH have not responded since 9:30 am this Wednesday, October 13.

A global failure

Since 9:30 am, many websites have stopped responding. It is impossible to know, for the moment, the reasons for this failure but the site DownDetector confirms the access problems. This failure affects all OVHCloud servers, including their institutional site.

OVH no longer responds, thousands of sites and services are inaccessible

According to OVHCloud, an update of a router was planned this morning, this should not theoretically result in stopping services. However, on Twitter, a user pointed out that it was possible to connect to machines in the Gravelines datacenter using IPv6, IPv4 routing seems to be a problem. Which seems to rule out the hypothesis of a fire.

Network and racks:: VIN/DC: We will do a maintenance on our routers on VIN DC to improve our routing.
Maintenance is planned for 13/Oct/21 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM ( UTC+2). No impact expected, device will be isolated before the change. https://t.co/n9NjpGICrU #ovh
