Throughout the day today (Tuesday June 18th) electricians will be conducting maintenance in our backup data center located just off campus in the research park. During this work we do not expect to see any interruption of services. All of the equipment has multiple power supplies, and we are cutting power to only part of the room at a time so the electricians can work safely. There is always the potential for something to fail unexpectedly and I wanted to make sure the campus was aware of the on going work. We expect work to be completed later this afternoon in that data center and I'll send out another notice once full service is restored to that space.
We will also be finishing the work that started two weeks ago in our primary data center this coming Saturday. While we again do not expect any outage, we moved the work to the weekend with the gracious help from our facilities management group to avoid any potential interruptions of service with orientation.
I wanted to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we perform this work to service the power conditioners and clean up the wiring in these spaces.
If you have any questions about this work or would like more information, please email me directly.
