What is up with Revver’s downtime?
The video-sharing site Revver has been having some major stability problems for a while now.
On November 1, Revver told TechCrunch that they were migrating to a new service provider:
Greenspan checked in and says they are in the middle of major migration from a CDN/provider to a tier 1 & top technology provider which “should make the quality of Revver videos displayed better then ever” (could take a few days).
The question is how well that migration has gone.
Our monitoring reveals that in the past month, the Revver website has been unavailable for a total of almost 24 hours. In just the last week, it has been down for more than 6 hours (including a 5-hour outage on January 17).

Some of the time the Revver site is completely unreachable, and other times it responds, but with a HTTP 500 error (internal server error). The site’s uptime for the last month is 96.88%, which is not good at all.
Some of the outages may be due to maintenance, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the site has been unavailable a lot. Hopefully this is just something temporary that the Revver team will be able to resolve soon.
(The monitoring was done with the Pingdom uptime monitoring service.)
