Power Outage Trumps Holiday

September 4th, 2006 by Company News Comments Off on Power Outage Trumps Holiday

LiteSpeed’s colocation provider lost power for 5 hours very early Thursday morning: hosed electrical feed to the UPS.

In direct response, we relocated our servers to another facility in the same building. The new data-center room has redundant UPS and Power plus twice the cooling capacity as the previous one.

The relocation didn’t come without cost. LiteSpeed’s site was down for much of late Sunday to late afternoon of Labor Day Monday. We figured anyone who really wanted to visit our site on Labor Day weekend was probably just lost and was a good time to make the move with least impact to our customers.

In summary: Electricity 1, LiteSpeed 0.
