Service Disruption - ID3Global/URU Platforms
Incident Report for GBG

Dear Customers,

At 9:23am on 14/7/2021 our monitoring triggered alerts that our primary data centre was not handling transactions. Resolver teams were investigating within 5 minutes and determined that some unknown physical or network issue was affecting the primary site. This was escalated to our provider to investigate.

While this investigation was ongoing GBG discovered that the synchronized database was affected to had to prepare for a manual fail-over to our secondary site. The preparation of this took longer than normal execution of failover as the state of the database needed to be verified.

The manual process was started at 1045 and completed at 1058. From this point customers would have been able to transact with the platform.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this incident.

We're pleased to inform you that the service disruption has now been resolved and users should be able to access the portal and complete transactions as normal.

We have failed over from our primary to our secondary site. This took longer than usual as the other site was unavailable. The team have performed all necessary tests and have signed off to say this is now working as expected.

A root cause analysis report containing further detail around the problem cause and resolution will be shared with you shortly.

Incident duration 09:32 - 10:58 BST 14/07/2021

To customers that have been affected by this issue, we would again like to apologise.

Initial investigations have determined that we have lost connection to our Primary site. We are working with our service provider to fix the issue.

Users may be experiencing connectivity issues preventing access to the portal and timeouts when processing transactions.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide a fix ETA at the moment.

We will update you at 11:30 BST 14/07/2021 or as soon as the issue is resolved.

Thank you for your patience whilst we restore our service back to our usual level.
