May 16, 2012 – A major power outage hit downtown Gadsden at approximately 10:35 PM and lasted until 11:17PM. Our generators took over so we didn’t have any major issues. However, one our our virtual server network attached server (NAS) devices lost power due to a misconfigured UPS. As a result some virtual machines went down until the NAS power was restored. All machines are online and running now. There were some filesystem errors, which may affect some customer servers/sites. If there are any questions, please contact us at email@example.com or call 256547-6817.
Update – May 17, 2012 – It seems that some databases were corrupted because of the power failure. This caused a few websites to go offline as well as the alternative webmail interface. We restored the affected databases from backup and all is working now.
