Just received this note from Intuit regarding the recent power outage and what caused it:
“We’re carefully monitoring the sites and the applications that support them to ensure we provide the services that customers expect. And they’re performing well at this time,” said Ginny Lee, Intuit chief information officer. “We’re deeply sorry for the disruption to businesses and consumers and appreciate their patience as we worked to resolve this problem.”
“With service restored, it’s our priority to work with those affected and resolve any issues caused by this outage.”
The outage occurred during routine maintenance Tuesday night. An accidental power failure at that time affected Intuit’s primary and backup systems, taking a number of Intuit corporate websites and services offline.
