GitHub’s website went down roughly 6 hours ago and it still remains broken after a data storage system failed.
Based on location, users across the world are facing issues related to speed, on using resources, login error, etc. Some users even complained that the commits of the last of 4-5 hours are not reflected on the site.

According to the status reports published by the platform, the problem began around 4 pm US West Coast time on Sunday.
Many users including me have been receiving a “What‽” error pretty much this morning. Meanwhile, GitHub engineers are trying to repair the data storage system issue that has frozen the website.
