Blackout testing

Who turned out the lights?

Power outages in your data centre can be caused by a range of factors, including natural disasters and human error. More importantly, they can often result in a break in service, damage to equipment and significant monetary loss.

Accidents, downed power lines, grid over-demands, lightning strikes and other natural disasters can all act as catalysts for power outages. With this in mind it is essential to check your UPSs work and your generator responds appropriately. One way of doing this is by simulating a power failure in your facility, to ensure the back-up generator performs as intended in the event of a power failure.

The thought of a blackout occurring particularly within a critical moment is naturally unnerving, so actively simulating a power failure is a decision which isn’t taken lightly.

Some benefits of data centre black out testing are;

  • Check your vulnerability to power grid outages
  • Expose any potential contingency weaknesses in recovery capabilities
  • Test for high availability, performance and business continuity plans
  • Have confidence in your data centre equipment
