Amazon EC2 lost

Dear Customers,

On Tuesday the 17th of June 2014 we received a well orchestrated DDOS against our servers, this happens quite often and we normally overcome them in a way that is transparent to the Code Spaces community. On this occasion however the DDOS was just the start.

Code Spaces will not be able to opportate beyond this point, the cost of resolving this issue to date and the expected cost of refunding customers who have been left without the service they paid for will put Code Spaces in a irreversible position both financially and in terms of on going credibility.

As such we have no alternative but to cease trading and concentrate on supporting our effected customers in exporting any remaining data they have left with us and processing refunds.

… if your backups are sitting right next to your active files they aren’t backups. They’re just copies sitting there.
