SmartDC maintenance

05/07/2013 | News |

Dear Client,

We would like to inform you about the power supply maintenance and tests of our datacenter SmartDC. Please find the planned maintenance and dates below:

UPS Maintenance:
LOCAL (CEST): 14 may 2013, 07.00 - 17.00
GMT: 14 May 2013, 05.00 - 15.00
Description: UPS Maintenance
Impact: Redundancy level on generators will be reduced during maintenance

Generator Maintenance:
LOCAL (CEST): 1 july 2013, 07.00 - 17.00
GMT: 1 July 2013, 05.00 - 15.00
Description: Generator maintenance
Impact: Redundancy level on generators will be reduced during maintenance

Dark Site Test:
LOCAL (CEST): 2 july 2013, 06.00 - 08.00
GMT: 2 July of 2013, 04.00 - 06.00
Description: Dark Site Test, mains failure test
Impact: Lightning flicker will occur during switching over to emergency power supply, short power drop at B-feed

During the generator maintenance, SmartDC will have another generator available and will be able to supply the full load of the datacenter facility. The testing is planned to test and confirm all emergency systems operate correctly during an actual, non simulated, electrical utility disturbance or failure. The A-feed will not be impacted as their redundant UPS and Generator systems will support the full load during the test. As their B-feed is not behind the UPS, this one will be down until the generators supply the full load. Also the lights will flicker during the transition to generator of up to 30 seconds. Emergency lightning will be available continuously.

Should you have any questions regarding the planned maintenance of SmartDC please open a ticket or send an e-mail to

Best Regards,
The Team

99,9% uptime

High availability of servers are extremely important to our customers, thus we take uptime seriously. We offer 99,9% uptime on all our dedicated servers and third party monitoring to prove it. Moreover, we have a completely redundant network and we can execute network maintenance without any packet loss on your end.

We offer additional flexibility by allowing you to upgrade your server at any time. You can upgrade your server without having to renumber your IP addresses or lose your data. All our dedicated servers come with hot swap drives, so the upgrades can often be done without any downtime.

Native IPv6

IPv4 addresses are running out very quickly and preparing for native IPv6 is essential. We offer native IPv6 with all our servers by default, complete with reverse DNS. This means that our entire infrastructure is IPv6 supported. Dedicated servers with native IPv6 are truly future proof. We enable you to use your native IPv6 addresses instantly after your server activation.
