Yesterday, almost a half of the internet went down due to a Cloudflare outage. These kind of large outages are very rare and does not happen often. Last time our services were affected by a CDN outage was due to an global outage at Fastly which also broke most of the internet. You can view our status update when that occured
Drivet also affected heavily by the Cloudflare outage since all our services are proxied by Cloudflare, including Drivet's website, Dangerous Discord, CDN, Blog and other some stuff such as DUP's outdated website.
Discord's API and CDN was also affected by this outage as they use Cloudflare too. Dangerous Discord would still have been down if we wouldn't have used Cloudflare since our backend wouldn't still be able to make requests to Discord's API as it's proxied by Cloudflare.
We collected some data for Dangerous Discord from one of monitoring tools we use, New Relic, here is some stats below:
