Despite our most concerted efforts to recover the live data, this has not proved successful and we have been forced to initiate a restore from a backup. Databases are coming online gradually over the next few hours. You will notice your data has rolled back anywhere from 12 to 72 hours. If you have a transactional site and it is critical that you have a later version please raise a support ticket and we will do our best to assist.
