Huntingdon Power Issue

We were made aware of an issue relating to servers at our Huntingdon Data Centre at around midnight Thursday night/Friday morning. After investigation it has become apparent that a Generator fault caused a incomplete switchover from mains to generator power resulting on the building running on UPS power until this exhausted approximately 40 minutes later.

Our engineer has attended site and initially brought most services back using generator power and after testing we have now reverted to mains power to the building. We now believe that all services are restored (most were back by about 1:30). We have raised a call with our generator service company to investigate urgently why all power was lost rather than a planned switchover occurring.

We apologise for any problems caused

Power Issue

There was an outage this morning for servers hosted in one of our racks. It appears the PSU of one machine failed and tripped the power feed to the rack itself. Engineers on site reset the power which brought up all servers apart from the rougue server. The Power supply in this server was replaced and the machine now appears fine. We are now checking all other serers and services but so far all appears fine. The outage was from appros 5:10am until 6:15am
