It has been disappointing this morning, and a Saturday makes it worse for many in eCommerce. However as stated, a 99.9% uptime which is pretty standard still leaves a lot of potential downtime. Normally problems are quickly resolved, however this appears to have been a larger problem, and I am sure the datacentres will put in place contingencies, should a similar problem occur.

It is unfortunate, but one of those things as far as I can see.

Pleased it is now resolved.

Good news. Global Switch have managed to get their own website back online.

According to their homepage, their tag line is "Global Switch, Always On".

Worth a read.

"Global Switch data centres operate to a Tier III standard or higher. The power infrastructure is designed to ensure robust resilience with "no break" IT power. We constantly invest in power capacity and adopt a policy of pass-through electricity costs based upon consumption only"

No break? Really? I'd love to hear them selling this concept to Claranet/Romancart on Monday morning.

99.99% uptime allows for 52.96 minutes of down time in any 365.25 day period. On this year's performance, I reckon they need to guarantee 100% uptime for approximately seven years in order to put things right.

Just saying...
