On the 23rd February 2019 starting from 08:00 our UPS vendor Vertiv will be undertaking a planned upgrade to the system adding additional battery capacity to our Horsham facility.
Normally with this type of work the UPS would be placed on “bypass” however the nature of the works require a complete decommission of the system which will require a complete isolation and removal of power to feed “B”
Each cabinet is supplied with a redundant “A” supply. All of our critical services and client facing platforms are dual feed so no outages are expected however should be considered at risk until the completion of the works.
We will be contact clients with co-location who have devices that are not dual redundant.
UPDATE 01 – 08:00
Engineer’s are now on site. Work will start shortly.
UPDATE 02 – 08:30
Work has started and power isolated.
UPDATE 03 – 13.00
Work is now complete and redundancy restored.
We have been advised by one of our fibre providers that they will be conducting maintenance on there hardware from the 8th June 2018 from 00:01 at Telehouse. This will affect a number of leased lines we provide via this location.
Please note this will affect clients with redundant fibre services whereby they terminate into the same core device on our network (carrier only redundant). Clients with DSL backup and or redundant fibre to our diverse cores at Telehouse (full redundancy) will not be affected.
Downtime is expected to be between 15 and 60 minutes all being well.
We have been advised our suppliers will be performing essential works on our interconnects which will cause a large number of circuts to lose their connection.
Work is anticipated to start at 02:00 and impact is expected to be 1 hour.
Our suppliers have advised this could be extended to 4 hours downtime.
Not all circuits will lose connectivity. However, if session disconnects during the work, they may not be able to reconnect until the work is complete.
We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
