We've confirmed that the service is healthy and that the issue is now resolved. The infrastructure that handles file storage/search index became degraded, causing availability issues. This negatively impacted our web application servers which were overloaded with connections due to increased timeouts. Interact's automatic redundancy system compensated by bringing online more web servers whilst our engineers investigated. Interact initiated a hardware refresh across the application infrastructure at 18.30pm this evening. Interact's APIs, iOS and Andriod apps were unaffected by this incident.
