Product Update: Failover Zones

Show of hands, who remembers when Amazon had an outage in September of 2015? How badly did it affect you? Were you upset that Netflix also went down, leaving you totally cut off from the digital world?



Since TeamPassword was also affected, our friends and clients all over the web had issues gaining access to their passwords. Since they didn't have their passwords they were unable to get their work done, and even worse not able to get into the systems they needed to help them recover when an event like this happens.

This internet hiccup inspired us. In an effort to never let something like this happen again, we created our very own Failover Zone. Our Failover Zone is set up so that even if Amazon goes down for the entire US, you will still have read-only access to your passwords.

We want to hold ourselves accountable, and make sure you're never without access to the accounts you need to do your job, and, recover from disasters.

Here are a few quick answers to frequently asked questions:

What, exactly, is a Failover Zone?

Our servers are hosted by Amazon in the US. This is generally fine, Amazon goes through extraordinary measures to make sure their servers are always up and running--and successfully so! Amazon powers a large percentage of internet traffic. However, technology being what it is, sometimes the worst happens, and an entire data center goes down, taking our service with it.

For this reason, we set up our Failover Zone, which is a copy of our servers and database setup on an entirely different continent.

And let me tell you: these servers are vigilant! They're constantly updating their data based off of our main servers, so should the cord somehow get cut, our failover zone will be up to date with your latest changes without someone at TeamPassword needing to restore a backup.

Why is this important?

Well, you need access to your stuff, don't you?

I *do* need access to my stuff. Good call! Where can I find the Failover Zone?

Our read-only Failover Zone will always be available here.

Phew, that makes me feel better. Anything else I should know?

We've also put up our new status page! If the service is unreachable for any reason we'll update the status page on when to use the failover service. We'll provide status updates so you'll always be in the loop.

Rest assured that we're working diligently to ensure that we're the top password vault available and that secure password management systems are in place to keep your information safe.
