Service Provision During the November 2010 Forum Powerdown

As the bulk of our servers and services are located in the Informatics Forum, during the building power-off most services will be down and unavailable for the duration of the power cut, plus a certain amount of time either side of the power off due to time required to shut things down and then restart them.

As a basic rule of thumb people should assume that no Informatics services will be working during the power off, the exceptions being:

  • (though no publishing will be available)
  • Plone WCMS sites hosted on

this is mainly due to those servers being located in Appleton Tower.

This means that the following (along with other services) will be unavailable: mail relays, networked file space eg home directories, and most web services. For a complete list of affected web sites see Nov2010WebSites.
