After ten partial or total disruptions, Solana has finally recovered with a series of recent updates for the ecosystem. Anatoly Yakovenko, Solana’s co-founder, discussed the difficulties of the past year at a conference like this: “We've had a lot of challenges over the last year; I would say this whole last year has been all about reliability.”
The issue of reliability has been a major concern for Solana during the past year. However, the recent updates are said to resolve the issue and bring about a new beginning for the ecosystem.
The most notable of these disruptions happened on Jan. 6-12, 2022 and the most major of them, called a “major outage,” lasted nearly six and a half hours on Oct. 1.
Yakovenko said that things got really bad for Solana in June and SOL’s slot time which is ideally 400 milliseconds went up to over a second which is really slow for Solana.

“That’s not the experience that we want to deliver and that’s a pretty bad Web2 experience when you’re competing with Google with Facebook with all these other applications,” he added.
Yakovenko said the recent update for Solana is a silver lining to resolving the network performance issues.
“[We’re] in a constant fight between performance, security, throughput, and decentralization, all of these problems [...] whenever you improve one you may actually hurt some of the other ones but I think we've done an amazing job in solving a bunch of those.”
Another promising news which came out for the ecosystem was the launching of smartphones, decentralized application (DApp) stores and a partnership with Google Cloud.
