Facebook Outage. My hat to you for transparency


I was impressed yesterday by how Facebook dealt with their first outage in 4 years.

They kept everyone informed via twitter, blog and their status page. I think they were transparent to some degree about the issue. More companies need to do this. My Hat to you Facebook!

Here is a list of other great companies that believe in transparency and have an open window to their system’s health:

If you know of any other companies with a status page, please add them to the comment and I will keep this list growing.

Have a great Friday full of uptime!
