LHC has dropped power to the decrease 50 percent of the constructing

4 hearth engines and “around twenty five firefighters” have been called to a hearth at a Telstra info centre in London’s Isle of Canines this morning.

“A modest aspect of a supply space on the third ground of the constructing was ruined by fire” London Fire Brigade has confirmed.

The hearth was at Telstra’s London Web hosting Centre (LHC) at 6 Greenwich See Position, E14, and has knocked out power for 50 percent the constructing.

The firm mentioned in a recorded information on its helpline that the meant it has “lost the eco-friendly method: this delivers power to the decrease 50 percent of the constructing.

“The hearth has tripped the breakers supporting the bus bar. Engineers are on internet site and functioning to restore power by generator as we speak.”

The LHC has eight turbines on internet site.

Unconfirmed studies propose the hearth was triggered by a faulty Uninterruptible Ability Offer (UPS) — the exact same difficulty that triggered a 14-hour outage at Equinix’s LD8 info centre on August 18 it is turning into a very poor thirty day period for DC companies.

The LHC is a nine-story constructing with about 114,000 square ft of info centre room, with the potential to host about one,800 IT racks.

Telstra could not immediately be achieved for additional comment.

This internet site was the very first to offer an different colocation facility to Telehouse, and was operational in early 1999. Australian PTT Telstra acquired its operator in September 2004, which include the London Web hosting Centre.

The Colo-X site notes that early tenants “included Digital Island (acquired by Cable and Wireless and then Vodafone), FLAG (now aspect of Reliance/International Cloud Trade) and Savvis (now aspect of Centurylink).”

It provides that “like all Docklands facilities, mainly because of the age of the internet site, network preference is relatively solid in LHC but not really as great as the carrier-neutral web sites nearby operated by Telecity/Equinix, DRT or Telehouse.”
