Equinix LD8 Core Offline - At Risk [RESOLVED]

August 18, 2020, 4:46 AM - Europe/London

Our Equinix LD8 core is currently offline after the site was evacuated due to a fire alarm. We expect this to be a site-wide power related issue.

All traffic was automatically rerouted to Telehouse North Two and so this single site outage is not service affecting.

Locations affected
Equinix LD8 - London, UK
Our core has now been stable for 12+ hours and we are marking this issue as fully resolved.

Equinix have now restored power to our rack and the router is back online without any issues.

We will continue to monitor the situation as there may be further disruption.

Most of the building now has the power restored, unfortunately our equipment being on a higher floor has not. We're assured all power within the building will be restored by 9PM BST.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing.

We are yet to receive any further notification regarding the matter from Equinix and our rack is still offline due to this site-wide power failure. We have technicians onsite ready to check equipment when the issue is resolved.
