Retrospective: Today's outage of opencorporates.com and its API

We experienced an outage of OpenCorporates and its API today, starting at 14:58 BST and lasting for approximately 40 minutes.

The proximate cause of the outage has been traced to a software issue in the high-availability clustering system of our boundary firewall, but root cause analysis is still being undertaken.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that this incident may have caused and thank you for your understanding.
