Services are now being recreated as new deployments due to no success so far recovering from the failed storage array. Our priority now is to get services running with the same IP and details as initially deployed. Once this is completed we will continue steps to attempt data recovery for those customers who request it.

Unfortunately the recovery process is running into problems due to corrupted disk images from the failed/degraded array. If you are affected and have your own independent backups please advise us with a support ticket and your service will be provisioned as a 'fresh' service on a replacement VPS node. You will then get up and running quickly and be able to restore your own backups.
Otherwise we are continuing attempts to recover data from the problematic array and contacting customers individually as we progress.

We are testing a recovered service now and will then advise further as to the status and timeframe of further restorations for individual services. Thank you for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Unfortunately it appears multiple (3) drives have failed in succession in a 6 drive RAID10 array. We are attempting a recovery process to try and bring the system online in a degraded state and working through the setup carefully. At this stage the underlying OS is not booting due to storage failure. Another method of attempted recovery is in progress now. Further updates to come as soon as information is available.
