Hill Data Center Update

On Wednesday, December 7th at approximately 9:20 AM, power to the Hill Center data center was inadvertently disconnected, resulting in a power outage that lasted approximately 20 minutes.  Due to the way in which the power was interrupted, existing backup and generator systems were bypassed, thereby causing the data center to completely lose power.  Power was restored by 9:40 AM and most systems and services were restored within the next hour.  OIT is reviewing the incident and will be implementing measures to make certain that this type of event will not reoccur.  We apologize for the disruption that this outage caused.
