SmartDC maintenance on April 2nd 2013

03/12/2013 | News |

Dear Customer, 

We would like to announce the maintenance program of our datacenter SmartDC. Please read this post carefully as it contains important information regarding the planned maintenance on:

LOCAL CET: April 2nd 2013, 06:00AM - 08:00AM
GMT: April 2nd 2013, 05:00AM - 07:00AM
Description: Dark Site Test, mains failure test.
IMPACT: Short power drop at B-feed

As a part of their maintenance program, SmartDC has planned a Darksite test. This test involves shutting down the power feed into the building to simulate the failure of the high voltage utility electrical supply to the facility. 

The testing of SmartDC 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 the redundant SPS and Generator systems will support the full load during the test. As the B-feed is not behind the UPS, it will be down until de generators supply the full load. Also the lights will be off during the transition to generator of up to 30 seconds.

Since all our servers are on the A-feed, you can rest assured this maintenance will not pose any impact on our servers.

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

Best Regards,
The Team
