GitLab Accidently Deletes Production Data; Discovers that their Backups Don’t Work

TechCrunch, reporting on the GitLab.com meltdown this morning:

According to The Register a folder containing 300GB of live production data was erroneously deleted by a GitLab sysadmin — with just 4.5GB remaining by the time the delete command was cancelled.

Holy shit!

Mad props to the team at GitLab for owning up about their mistake and being so open and upfront about the status.
