We've isolated the site with the traffic spike and moved it to its own system. All sites should be returning to normal.

Identified
A sudden, massive spike in traffic caused a database server to fail which caused a cascade through out the hosting infrastructure.

All sites are currently up, though some may experience slower than normal backend access while we isolate the database.
