A young startup learned a lesson the hardway today:

Never colo with only one ISP.

Over an hour two hours, at 4pm PST today, Viddler was entirely down, all embeds, everything, due to power and network failing at entire Limelight Phoenix location. We are taking measure to replicate viddler architecture with other ISPs. So sorry Viddler people this is something that will be work to fix.

    I just started using Viddler and in the past 2 or 3 days I have been experiencing outages of at least 2 or 3 hours a day. It is currently down for me…
