Server Outage

Post by deuce » Mon Jun 02, 2008 1:38 pm

The whole server was down due to an explosion in the electrical room at the datacenter. The explosion knocked down 3 interior walls along with knocking out all electricity of course. The fire dept would not allow them to restore power by their generators. This datacenter contains 9,000 servers and all were down. This equals to about 500,000 to 1 million web sites being down. Power was restored for the 2nd floor early this morning which is the floor this is server on. The 1st floor still does not have power as the underground cables were destroyed. If I come across any pics, I will post them up.
