Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—October 28, 2013. Statement from HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters:
“Today, Terremark had a network failure that is impacting a number of their clients including HealthCare.gov. Secretary Sebelius spoke with the CEO of Verizon this afternoon to discuss the situation and they committed to fixing the problem as soon as possible.”
Terremark, the company that operates the data center that hosts the HealthCare.gov website and the Data Services Hub, experienced a failure in a networking component that brought down network connectivity to the site.
Our understanding is that this failure is likely impacting several other sites, in addition to HealthCare.gov and the Data Services Hub.
