Former employees think the service might be having problems.
Twitter plans to abandon one of its three US data centers in early 2023, according to Platformer editor Zoe Schiffer. It’s about the data center in Sacramento.
According to Schiffer, the service will also reduce the number of servers in the Atlanta data center. There are no plans to change the configuration of the other data centers.
According to DataCenterDynamics, when Twitter’s Sacramento data center went down in September, it caused problems with access to the service. Apparently, Twitter expects that under normal circumstances, the rest of the data centers should handle the load.
Former employees of the company doubt it. In particular, it was suggested that Twitter’s code has a lot of hard links to the Sacramento data center.
Twitter is reportedly giving up the data center to reduce its operating costs. Earlier, billionaire Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, fired or forced at least half of the company’s employees to leave.
The company has not officially commented on the reports of journalists and the statements of former employees.
