UPS, AMF, ATS and Generator Load Testing - January 2021

06 January 2021, in Data Centre

As part of Web Wiz planned and preventative maintenance regime we will be carrying out load testing on the Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), Automatic Mains Failure (AMF), Automatic Transfer Switching (ATS) and Neutral Gas Powered Generator Systems at our Data Centre.

During the test period, the UPS systems will take the full load of the Data Hall while the Generator comes online and the AMF moves the facility to Generator Power.  

The Generator will take the full load of the facility for a 20 minute period, once the test is completed power to our facility will return to our usual mix of Solar, Battery, and Utility Power.

Automatic Transfer Switching (ATS) will move rack power from "A" to "B" Power Feeds before returning each Rack to "A" Power Feeds.

At-risk period:
Start Date: 12th January 2021

Times work will be carried out:
Start Time: 08:00
End Time: 08:30

Service Impact:
No impact to services is expected.

Reason:
This routine maintenance is essential to ensure that the UPS, Generator and Automatic Switching systems work as intended and are able to provide power to our Data Centre in the unlikely event of a Power Outage.

Data Centre Fibre Outage

22 September 2020, in Network, Data Centre

Our Virgin Media fibre circuits to our Bournemouth Data Centre have loss connectivity. This has been raised with our upstream provider who are investigating the issue.

Traffic that would have been carried over the circuits has automatically rerouted and there is no impact to service at this time, however service should be considered at risk due to the loss of resilience.

Update 19:10
Connectivity has been restored and the service has been returned to full resilience. No reason for the outage has been given as yet.

We will continue to monitor the fibre circuit and will update this page if the situation changes.
