Monitoring confirms that this issue is now resolved. To explain a little:
A backend database went offline after experiencing memory issues. We spun up a new server, restored a database snapshot, and restarted several components. That process took longer than expected and service was intermittent and largely unavailable while it took place. We're working to tune our reporting and other processes to help identify this type of issue before it happens in the future as well as to minimize the impact this type of downtime can have for our apps and users.

We've deployed fixes and are monitoring the situation, but things look good and services should be returning to normal for users now.

We're continuing to investigate problems with one of our databases and are working to get things up and running for everyone as soon as possible.
