Russian IT company helped restore access to Parler
The Russian-owned company helped Parler restore the social network for a short period of time, after the monopoly Amazon began to systematically disconnect the messenger from its servers.
“The internet protocol address it used is owned by DDos-Guard, which is controlled by two Russian men and provides services including protection from distributed denial of service attacks,” infrastructure expert Ronald Guilmette told Reuters.
Silicon Valley corporations began exercising their monopoly opportunities after the storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters and BLM. Apple and Google removed Parler from their stores, and Amazon accused the social network of improperly moderating messages from their users, who allegedly "glorified" the violence and planned to seize the Capitol building.
Parler was online again on Monday.
“Our return is inevitable due to hard work, and persistence against all odds. Despite the threats and harassment not one Parler employee has quit. We are becoming closer and stronger as a team,” Parler CEO John Matze wrote.
The website of the company itself does not say anything about the support of Parler or about any cooperation in general.
“The stable functioning of our customers' web resources is our priority. That is why we design our traffic processing network based on requirements of maximum system reliability. It gives us an opportunity to provide and guarantee more than 99.5% uptime SLA,” the website says.
Earlier, Parler filed an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon. According to a representative of the social network, the final date of the exit from the crisis is not indicated, although in an interview with Fox News it is said that Parler would return at the end of January.
