A hard drive failed on the storage arrays servicing hwVPS accounts. This hard drive was a member of the array involved with "big" storage on those plans. There was no downtime or data loss.

The array automatically began a "rebuild" from a hot spare. Redundancy is still in place during the rebuild since it is a RAID 6 array and full double redundancy will be restored when the rebuild completes later this evening.

We'll purchase a replacement drive next week to restore hot spare availability for this type of drive.
