Summary

This is The Internet Report, where we uncover what’s working and what’s breaking on the Internet—and why. Despite a quiet last couple of weeks on the Internet, we started off our new year with quite the bang. As droves of mildly-caffeinated workers returned to their home offices on Monday after the holiday break, many were surprised to find that Slack was not available. On today’s episode, we go under the hood of Slack’s Monday outage to see what went wrong and how it was resolved. We’re also excited to be joined by Forrest Brazeal, a cloud architect, writer, speaker and cartoonist, to talk about everyone’s favorite subject: cloud resiliency. Watch this week’s episode to see the interview and hear our outage analysis.
