Facebook Database Write Failed Error, May 27 2012

Facebook Database Write Failed error, May 27 2012.

As on March 5, Facebook Likes are again failing today with a Database Write Failed message. The error shows up when you click on “Like” for any object while logged-into Facebook.

The failure has continued for the last few hours.


With multi-levels of redundancies in Facebook’s storage infrastructure, such errors should be extremely rare if any.

Facebook’s Open Vault Storage is Facebook’s basic hardware building block for its redundant storage.

Update: Facebook login fails too.
