We are currently experiencing an outage on the download repositories master. We will keep you in touch.
Edit 2014-07-20 14:39 UTC: Not a good news, the server is dead, probably due to an overheat condition, we will try to reach the server tomorrow with new hardware.
Edit 2014-07-22 08:40 UTC: Yeah, we did not reach the server yesterday, we know, we know. We got the opportunity to be given new hardware way better than expected and we are currently testing it, furthermore we are going for a cheap shared trip at the end of the week to replace the server.
Edit 2014-07-25 10:00 UTC: New hardware in production, everything should be back ! :)
Edit 2014-07-25 16:48 UTC: Finally, all slaves finished syncing, they are all back in the download pool.

Here we are, all services are now running Debian Wheezy.

Here we are, we did the first step of the upgrade of everything to Debian Wheezy this evening which should have been done months ago, web servers are now running Debian Wheezy.
If anything goes wrong and if you cannot manage to fix your stuff yourself, contact us.

Secondary services, like ns2 and mx2 are down due to a planned work on the host facilities.
What we know is "Unfortunately, a problem prevents us to put your server back.", we let you understand the real meaning :-)
Edit: We moved those services on a new location, everything is back !

TuxFamily.org will be to the Solutions Linux 2014 event in Paris on May 20-21
It will be a great time for all of us to meet, talk about your projects and to have some feedbacks on our hosting platform. You are all welcome in our cubicle for a coffee (or more !) We always enjoy having a special time with our hosted people so don't hesitate, come and have a talk with us.

Everything is down since 02:00 UTC, secondary services (ns2 and mx2) are up, we are currently waiting for storage servers to be back.
Edit 2014-04-03 10:14 UTC: Everything should be back online.

Less worse this time, but we lost the master download repository server, we are currently waiting for a hard reboot.
Edit 2014-04-02 16:07 UTC: Server is back, disk array is back, but it does not look like to be very healthy, we might have lost at least one hard disk in overheat, monitoring.

The ecological problems caused by electricity production are not new (nuclear powerplants that yield radioactive waste, carbon powerplants producing CO2 in the atmosphere) and the electrical consumption due to IT technologies keeping going up, even though hardware consumption keeps improving to keep it low.
From this stand, TuxFamily team has decided to take the bull by the horn and produce their own server electrical requirements thanks to one or several wind turbines. As a first step, only secondary services (DNS, MX) will be powered this way; if this test-phase is conclusive, the whole infrastructrure may benefit from this new power source.
Of course, there may be tradeoffs, days without wind will lead us to reduce traffic to reduce server load. In this case, an unbiased filtering would occur, like the one applied to cars in case of heavy pollution: even-IPs could connect even-days and odd-IPs could connect odd-days.

Edit: Of course it was our yearly April fool joke ;-)

Almost everything is down due to hosts shutting down in thermal limit, web service is still running for now. Secondary services (dns and mx2) are up.
Edit 2014-03-29 13:43 UTC: All disks arrays stopped in thermal limit except one which will follow soon.
Edit 2014-03-29 14:10 UTC: Load balancer reached thermal trip shutdown, everything is down.
Edit 2014-03-29 14:30 UTC: Power switched off to prevent further damages.
Edit 2014-03-29 16:45 UTC: Air conditioning is back, power is back, recovering in progress.
Edit 2014-03-29 17:39 UTC: Recovered, everything should be back online.

Woops, we are running peacefully in our tiny network island, but this isn't great :-)
Anyway, in less the time to understand what is happening and to write this entry, everything is back to normal.
