Salesforce went down for a whole day - and it became an internet meme
Its site basically went down for the whole day and the company is still reporting lingering problems.The outage occurred at Salesforce's North American 14 site and it affected a lot of Salesforce's customers in the Bay Area, the company's backyard, as well as customers across North America. Salesforce reported that once NA14 went down, other data centers bobbled as well.

On a serious side, an outage this big and this long is not good for Salesforce and its "service level agreements." SLAs require that customers get reimbursed if a cloud goes down for too long.In other words, Salesforce likely lost quite a bit of money on Tuesday.
