"Vkontakte" breaks the wall // A failure occurred in the work of the largest Russian social network
In the largest Russian social network VKontakte, a large-scale failure occurred, as a result of which some users did not have access to the service for four hours. The company did not name the cause of the failure. Kommersant's sources suggest that an error could have caused the problem when installing updates in the network core, since the company's data centers continued to operate normally. For VK, such an accident primarily threatens reputational risks, experts say.
