JED Platform outage resolved

Dear JED Users,

You might have experienced some issues with the JED website over the past few days, we apologise for this. It appears that the outage has been resolved. The cause of outage came from within our data centers and this can be explained, in part, by organic growth.

We know it was extremely frustrating for many of you. We’d like to inform to Joomla community about the collaboration and efforts that were taken to solve the issue.
