Telstra had an Internet outage in Australia this afternoon. It might come as some surprise to know that this wasn't a two-bit ISP that went down. Almost 60% of Australia's internet users (both business and personal) were hit by the data outage that affected ADSL, Cable and NextG/3G services beginning at approximately 1:40pm AEST.
At 4:00pm AEST Telstra were reporting restored services across the country, however we still have customers suffering from a lack of Internet connectivity.
The up-side of all this? The customers we support on the IBM Collaboration Solutions portfolio running on-premises and hybrid implementations were able to continue working - albeit without new communications being sent and received - unlike those on Office365 and Google, who were completely cut off from their data during the outage.
A key component of IBM Lotus Notes and Domino is the amazing replication technology, which enables users to take entire systems off-line and then synchronise only changes AT THE FIELD LEVEL (meaning it's extremely efficient!) when connectivity is restored.
The Hybrid model available through IBM technologies like IBM Lotus Notes and Domino really demonstrated their value today. Thank heaven for Lotus Notes.
