Data Centre Mains Failover Demo - Captured On Film

Posted 18th March, 2014 by Aliysa

Regular power failure tests are an integral part of our data centre management and we've been carrying them out every month since launch. With the push of a big red button, the main power supply serving our data centre is disconnected and within 30 seconds our generators power up and continue to run the servers without disruption to service.

In the early hours of this morning, we carried out a mains failover test and left the UPS supporting the whole data centre for half an hour, before switching the main power supply back on. This time we decided to capture how our power distribution and backup system functions on film:
