Upgraded CodePair availability

Earlier today, we rolled out an upgraded failover feature for CodePair. This allows a CodePair interview to continue on a secondary server if for some reason the primary server goes down. Even though our data center already guarantees 99.95% uptime, we believe it’s important to get that value as close to 100% as we possibly can, which is why we’re upgrading our failover system.

The way this feature will work is simple: if the primary server experiences downtime during a CodePair interview, both the interviewer and candidate see this pop up:

When the user presses “Continue”, their CodePair interview session restarts on a secondary server with all of the session’s previous details and code completely intact. The interview will continue with minimal interruption and no data loss.

If you have any questions about this failover functionality, please write to us at support@hackerrank.com.
