Re: Anyone else lost power at Fisher Plaza this afternoon?

If anyone else lost power at Internap's Fisher Plaza facility in Seattle this afternoon and have any info related to exact duration or cause please hit me back off-list.

Isn't this like the 2nd or 3rd event at Fisher of late?

Any answers Jonathan? Has Fisher owned up to the cause yet? I did not hear of any local grid issues (we're certainly NOT broiling up here like the rest of the country.)

The *rumor* I heard was some sort of bypass switch failure. Genset(s) running, but no juice being delivered... then the UPS' ran dry. Outage lasted 45-90-some minutes depending on where in the facility your gear was.

The above is all hearsay though, from some INAP customers I ran into yesterday.
