Hurricane #Sandy and Amazon Web Services – Migrating Out of us-east-1 in a Hurry

Hurricane Sandy Map

Hurricane Sandy and Amazon Web Services: Migrating Out of us-east-1 in a Hurry @ Octopart.

As we approach our 5th day without power here in lower Manhattan, I wanted to update our users on how we’ve fared here at Octopart during Hurricane Sandy.

Our team members are all safe and doing well. Watching the images of destruction puts into perspective the small inconvenience of walking uptown to charge my phone battery. Our hearts go out to all who were affected.

As the storm approached on Sunday evening, this image made a strong impression.

Where’s your server at? If you’re using EC2 you may want to know how to pack your bags and jet in case of an emergency! We have been using ServInt with no interruption in services – thanks guys!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
