Exabytes - CBJ1 Planned Power Outage

Dear Valued Clients,

This is the latest announcement regarding TMNet CBJ1 Data Centerâ¬"s Planned Power Outage Event which was postponed on 14th April.

The new maintenance details are as below:

Maintenance Date: 12th May 2007 (SAT) ⬠13th May 2007 (SUN)
Maintenance Time: 6:00AM (12th May) ⬠7.00AM (13th May), GMT +0800

Maintenance Description:
TMNet has scheduled a repair and audit activity in the CBJ1 Data Center (formerly known as MyLoca) that involved the whole Data Center. It is part of an ongoing effort to ensure the integrity and reliability of the electrical power system of the Data Center at all times. The agenda of the planned outage are as below:

1. To Install 4 new PDU and 4 STS systems to provide more scalability.
2. The end-to-end audit, assessment and re-commissioning of power infrastructure (from UPS, batteries, STS and PDU)
3. To repair all damaged equipments due to previous incidents (involving 8 STSs and PDs units)
4. To perform a mega test on cabling infrastructure (640 cables) to ensure all cabling infrastructure are fit for operation
5. To migrate from old cabling infrastructure (known to have potential risk) to new cabling infrastructure
6. To install Monitoring Systems (Sitescan) for the power infrastructure
7. To allow for housekeeping and inventory update
8. To get full audit report in response to previous incidents and update on the latest power infra condition (after repair and fix)

Maintenance Impact:
1. Maintenance will begin at 06.00AM Malaysian Time on Saturday, 12th May 2007. The work is expected to conclude within 24 hours, at approximately 07.00AM Malaysian Time, Sunday, 13th May 2007.

2. On 11th May, between 7.00PM ⬠11.00PM, we will switch to temporary backup power provided by TMNet CBJ1 Data Center. The back up power has no guarantee for redundancy (as in normal power supply). The backup power served as alternative solution to avoid 24-hour or longer service downtime. Therefore the backup supply may not be applied to any SLA or Uptime Guarantee. Exabytes will however put our best effort to ensure the stability and reliability of the power supply. As we need to shutdown the server before we switch to the backup power, a down time of 5-10 minutes is expected.

3. We need to shut down the server for another 5-10 minutes on 13th May (Sunday) after the repair and audit activity is successfully completed for switching back to normal power supply.
