Update: We are pleased to report load has stabilized after the increase in resources. We will continue to monitor to ensure adequate performance but sites should be back online. Thank you for your patience.
Previously: We have been investigating high load on outofstep. We believe WordPress updates across sites are causing increased load. Due to many factors we are going to be increasing memory and resources to this server which will result in a short period of downtime while the server resizes. We will update here when things are back online and stable.
