Tumblr up after outage

2010-12-07 08:26
New York - The popular blogging site Tumblr is recovering from an outage that had left it out of service for about 24 hours.

Tumblr says the problem was in one of its database clusters, or collection of databases. On Twitter, the company says the databases are up and running. Tumblr says it is slowly opening up access to people's blogs and monitoring site performance.

New York-based Tumblr lets users post photos, text, videos and other content in short updates. It bills itself "the easiest way to blog", though on Monday morning that wasn't the case.

While both Facebook and Twitter have suffered big outages in recent years, the length of Tumblr's problem is unusual.

Twitter users complained about the outage in English, Spanish and Japanese among other languages.
