Hurricane Irene is currently approaching the NYC metro area where some of our servers are located. Earlier this week the datacentre took precautions for the storm including testing UPSs and generators, topping off their diesel generator tanks and notifying their fuel vendors in case of extended power outages. staffing levels at the datacentre will be increased this weekend to ensure adequate coverage in case of emergencies.

Hopefully, service won’t be affected by this but please be assured that the datacentre staff are on high alert in case of any problems.
