Given the massive storm that is predicted to hit the East Coast over the next couple of days, I'm wondering what steps people are taking to ensure servers remain up. Any special precautions your organization is taking? Do you have a particular set of guidelines you follow in preparation for storms like these?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Obviously, many data centers were not prepared. Mr. Denny offered some good tips over on his blog for how the difficult situations could have been avoided with smart data center facility planning

    I wonder if there are any data centers still having problems, or has everything been fixed at this point?

    The timing of the question might make it hard for many to respond, especially those who are in the mess. If you're not busy at home or with neighbors, friends or general community, you're probably busy mopping up the office or data center. Before it hit, I can imagine spare time at a premium, too. -- Tom
