[Slashdot] - Europe's OVH Web Hosting Provider Knocked Offline Following Fire

Recommended Posts

Kelerei writes: A major fire has destroyed a data center of European cloud provider OVH in Strasbourg, France. The SBG2 data center is completely destroyed, while the blaze caused some damage to SBG1 before being contained. SBG3 and SBG4 were also taken offline, but a plan is underway to restart them once the firefighters give the all-clear. All OVH staff at the site are accounted for and unhurt, but it is unlikely that the data in SBG2 is recoverable. On OVH's status page, an ominous note states "if your production is in Strasbourg, we recommend to activate your Disaster Recovery Plan." Among the sites affected is the WordPress image optimization site Imagify and the encryption utility VeraCrypt. (Submitter's note: this is why any disaster recovery plan should include offsite backups...)
