Tiscali power glitch reaches across Europe

Lights out at TINet

A power outage in Tiscali's Frankfurt data centre disrupted net services to its German customers on Sunday. Power was down for 40 minutes between 2005 and 2045 on 21 October knocking an unknown proportion of the ISP's Germany hosting customers offline and affecting at least one UK firm whose international partners used the TINet data centre.

Although performance graphs from Tiscali show the affect of the power outage (French portion) on its backbone it's unclear how many businesses, either directly or indirectly, were hit by last weekend's outage. A spokeswoman for Tiscali said she was unable to comment on the Frankfurt issue but added that the glitch in "no way" affected UK services.

"We do peer with TINet through Italy, but issues in Germany or France would have no significant affect on UK customers, Our UK Network Operations Centre reports no outages on or since Sunday," she added. ®
