On the 28th of September 2016, the State of South Australia experienced a complete power outage that affected the vast majority of businesses and residences in the State.
The Sungard data centre also experienced a loss of power from the utility, South Australian Power Networks (SAPN). During this mains power outage the data centre immediately transferred from utility power to obtain supply from its own UPS batteries and diesel generators. We are pleased to advise that the transfer from mains power to our auxiliary power supply during this unplanned event, was seamless enabling all of our customers to continue business operations without interruption. In total the data centre was operating on auxiliary power without mains power supply from 15.40 pm to 21.55pm
