Power out again at Telecity

It has been ... 2 ... weeks since we tripped over a cable

Telecity's Docklands hosting and back-up centre, Meridian Gate, is suffering a power outage.

We've had emails from several customers currently twiddling their thumbs waiting for services to be restored. No official word from the company yet, but we'll update this story should they return our phone calls.

Reg readers told us the power had failed earlier today but had no information on why back-up generators and power supplies had also failed.

The company's last outage was earlier this month, and was also blamed on power problems.

Such problems are often blamed on exceptionally hot weather – cooling is a major issue for data centres at the best of times. But given the rubbish summer we're suffering in the UK, it seems unlikely that heat is the problem.

Drop us a line if you know more. ®
