MTN has said that as far as it is aware, there was no failure or outage in its Gallo Manor data centre over the weekend.
This comes after some of the network operator’s clients reported that virtual private servers, and various domain name (DNS) and content delivery network (CDN) services appeared to be down.
With numerous services not seeming to respond, clients reported that it seemed like MTN’s Gallo Manor data centre was offline.
ADSL subscribers on Afrihost reported being unable to browse certain international sites, with reports linking this to a DNS and CDN outage on MTN.
However, Afrihost has said that after running extensive tests to look for any possible issues, it found that everything in its Gallo Manor environment to be working as expected.
“We’re also not showing any unusual traffic, so we’re confident there is no issue,” Afrihost said.
“Our DNS is not linked to MTN’s, as we now run on a completely discreet network. While we did have some problems with DNS – as listed on our network status page – this is not linked to MTN to the best of our knowledge.”
Update (11h10, 14 February 2016): Afrihost has clarified that as far as it can tell, its DNS issues are not linked to an outage on MTN.
