Scheduled Tor1 UPS Maintenance - 01-Mar-2016

Post by porcupine »

Hi Folks,

Please be advised of the following maintenance window:

Maintenance Window: Tuesday March 1st 2016, 9:30am - 4:00pm Eastern time
Facility: Tor1 - 151 Front street west
Affected Device: 151 Front st., suite 818 - UPS-A.tor1 & UPS-B.tor1
Affected Customers: Colocation, dedicated server, and hosting customers
Service Impacting: No - precautionary notice only

Details: Powerware will be performing the standard annual maintenance on both UPS units. While we do not expect this to be a service impacting maintenance, the UPS unit(s) will be operating on bypass for a portion of this window, and should utility power fail at that time, there will be an interruption in services as the Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) switches power from utility to generator. As such, this should be considered a precautionary maintenance window. We expect each UPS unit to be on bypass for less than 30 minutes during this maintenance window, allowing technicians sufficient time to perform any/all invasive tests & maintenance items that need to be performed. The bypass will be staggered, to ensure both units are not on bypass at the same time.
