[Datto SaaS Protection] Service Interruption Impacting UK Environments
Incident Report for Datto
We continue to see steady but slow improvement for the affected accounts in the UK.

The new infrastructure is on site and going through our standard onboarding process. We remain on track to remediate the current situation by the end of next week.

We’ll provide another update by the end of day on Monday along with some additional info early next week on what to expect as we near full remediation of the current situation.

Backup success rates were temporarily disrupted by the unrelated incident communicated earlier today. In general, we continue to see steady but slow improvement in the UK. We are on track with the previously communicated timeline of bringing new infrastructure online to remediate the current situation by the end of next week. We’ll provide more info as we get closer.

We’ll continue to post updates at least every 2 business days. If there’s anything worthy of an interim update we will be sure to provide that.

We are continuing to closely monitor backup success rates and ingest rates in the UK. The last 24 hour backup success rates are right around 99.5%. The changes implemented late last week have had a positive effect on the rate of ingest. The ingest backlog is being steadily reduced. However, there remains a large backlog to work through.

We have additional infrastructure scheduled to be brought online by the end of next week. We expect to return to normal operations within a few days of that new infrastructure.

We are continuing to closely monitor backup success rates and ingest rates in the UK. Last week a change was deployed addressing a long-standing Microsoft API issue which unlocked a large number of SharePoint backups. This temporarily saturated our Azure peering links and caused other backups to lag behind.

We’ve since addressed the networking issue. However, it created a large backlog of new services along with some incremental backups that were missed.

We are iteratively making application changes to increase the throughput of backups. One of the changes we made today is to temporarily reduce backups from 3x/day to 2x/day. This will provide additional backup slots to make progress on the backlog. Again, this is temporary and will revert back as soon we return to normal operations.

Ultimately we need additional infrastructure to permanently resolve the issues. We brought some new infrastructure online today and have more resources already en route to the UK which will come online within the next 2 weeks.

Please know we are treating this with the highest priority.

We’ll continue to post regular updates. If you have any specific questions please open a ticket with Datto Support.

Several configuration changes have been made to increase the number of concurrent Exchange backup runs. Exchange backup success rates are improving although it may be several days before the backlog is eliminated and for backup reports to reflect the improving state. In particular, new customer ingest will be delayed since general priority is given to existing incremental backups. We expect normal operations by the end of the week. If you have a specific concern, please raise a support ticket.

We are currently aware of a problem where environments in the UK are experiencing decreased backup success rates and slow ingest speeds.

Our Engineering team is currently investigating this issue.

Currently, we do not have an ETA on when a fix will be available.
