Many websites have reported that Jaiku is now being hosted on Google servers. I had to test it for myself and see what a traceroute would return – look for yourself.
Jaiku has been down all weekend with a notice: “Folks, we’re offline for the weekend for server maintenance. Now’s a good time to talk to someone you love.” Recently we also wrote about the web 2.0 crash that occured to Finnish startups using Nebula’s services and back then Jaiku was one of those services.
Mashable is guessing that the final move to Google App Engine is on the way, but to be honest – there’s no proof. We’ve written about the move a few times, but it hasn’t happened yet. Another interesting question to ask is that how many people have left Jaiku for twitter as this is the second long outage that has occured in a very short time period?
