We have identified the cause; Hardware failure.
After further correspondence with Hetzner, it appears that during the hardware switch yesterday a technician had mismatched memory installed - anyhow the whole server has been replaced and we are closely monitoring for any early warning signs of another incident like this.
Compensation is available for clients who were affected by this outage, simply email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your server IP.
Sorry for any inconvenience.

We are awaiting action from our provider. We believe there has been yet another hardware failure.

Unfortunately, yesterdays events have repeated themselves and the host system has crashed once again. We are looking into the cause.
