NC031: Data centre power failure

19 July 2018 05:09:49 +0000

At 23:04 UTC on 18 July connectivity issues were reported at the New York, US, data centre. The cause of this problem was later identified as a power outage. The data centre is currently reporting that power was restored to the data centre at 00:38 UTC on 19 July, but our own logs on the server itself indicate that it was only down between 22:55 and 23:50 UTC on 18 July. We are expecting a full report from the data centre and will post further details here when we receive that.

This affected our primary web server, hosting most clients’ websites, including our own primary website (www.niner.net).

We later soft-rebooted the server at 04:07 UTC on 19 July, and it was back online at 04:08.

This outage affected automated daily back-ups on the server. These have been restored and will run as scheduled at the next scheduled time, which is at midnight UTC on 20 July.

We apologise for this outage. The data centres we select are supposed to have redundant power systems to ensure that this kind of event never happens. However, clearly it did in this case and, as mentioned above, we are expecting a follow-up report from the data centre to explain this failure.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us to let us know. Thank-you, and we again apologise for this incident.
