Power Outage Hits eBay

Last night eBay was down for 6 hours due to a power outage at their hosting facility in San Francisco. A 6 hour outage for eBay works out to about $4,000,000 in lost revenue. Ouch.

Maybe time for them to think about geographically redundant servers? :)

I could'nt have figured that calculation otherwise, this however shows how huge ebay is.
