Re: Need help IT vs Facilities

We moved our entire data center and DR gear to a COLO.

I remember when we had the stuff on-premises.

What a pain when power went out and we had to rely on the genny for extended periods of time.

Think IKE.

Or do like us and put your fuel supplies in the basement (think Katrina). Derrrr

@Op:
We have two generators on our headquarters. They both power-on, no load, every Wednesday at like 2 AM. Load test a few times prior to hurricane season but no scheduled load test.
