SF power outage takes down web servers galore
July 25, 2007 | By Peter Bihr |
The reports about last night’s power outage in San Francisco’s SOMA District are filing in: The Laughing Squid has a quick summary of the events. My favorite part?
Weâ€™re seeing several reports of a chaotic scene at 365 Main, with a line of sys admins forming outside the door waiting to get in to work on their servers.
As you see in the video above, the Onion knew about it all, and prepared a nifty news piece a while back.
How come there are no backup generators in place at the ISPs, particularly in the SF area? (Do you know about any reliable stats regarding how big a chunk of web content is provided from within the greater Valley region? If you do, please let me know!)
