The service currently runs on Hetzner bare metal servers, with healthy excess capacity to handle traffic spikes. The app servers are load-balanced. The PostgreSQL database has a hot standby as well as full daily backups to S3. The database fail-over process is manual, and the ops team consists of a single person, so multi-hour or even multi-day outages are possible!
While we can only guarantee the best effort availability, in practice, the availability has exceeded 99.9% since the service publicly launched in July 2015.
