The New Zealand Defence Force web sites have been out of motion for a whole operating 7 days since Monday, with no believed time of services restoration readily available.

An NZDF spokesperson told iTnews that the outage is ongoing.

“A hardware failure influenced storage at one of our data centres, which has meant the NZDF, Navy, Army and Air Force web sites have been inaccessible since previously this 7 days,” the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson included that NZDF is operating with the unnamed producer of the data centre storage program to rectify the issue.

“Although we proceed to perform on the primary concerns, we are setting up option net web hosting of the critical material, which we foresee will be in area later right now,” the spokesperson said.

“NZDF could transfer to an option web hosting arrangement in case the issue with the hardware are unable to be fixed very easily and quickly as effectively.”

With its principal website now temporarily up by using reverse proxy provider Incapsula, NZDF is directing website visitors to its Medium webpages, as effectively as its social media existence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

In 2018, the NZDF joined other government organizations on a digital transformation programme, with its three-yr Defence Force Communications and Data Programs Transform and Transformation Task (CISCTP).

Datacom was picked to offer a protected cloud-centered Prevalent Data Natural environment on Microsoft Azure for NZDF.
