Planned UPS Maintenance at our Maidenhead Facility – Pulsant 1 Only

Please be aware of the following planned maintenance window for UPS Maintenance at our Maidenhead Facility – Pulsant 1 Only.

WHAT
In keeping with the manufacturer’s recommendations and the Pulsant planned and preventative maintenance regime, we will be carrying out scheduled UPS maintenance at our Maidenhead Facility – Pulsant 1 Only

SERVICE IMPACT
NONE – There will be no planned service impact, this is an advisory note, as there will be reduced UPS resilience whilst the maintenance is being carried out.
Power will remain unaffected to customer racks, but with reduced resiliency during the maintenance period.
However to bring the unit(s) back on line there will be an element of switching that needs to be done hence an “At Risk” notification is being sent out.
The maintenance will be completed by a specialist 3rd party and the UPS units will be fully tested prior to being returned to normal service. Complete power protection will be restored upon completion of the UPS maintenance.
WHY
Pulsant follow a stringent Planned Preventative Maintenance regime. This work forms a major part of this regime.
Pulsant’s specialist UPS contractors will be on site to complete the scheduled maintenance, supervised by the datacentre management team throughout.

WHEN
Work is scheduled to be carried out during the following maintenance windows:

Start: – Tuesday 3rd November 2020, commencing at 09:00 GMT
End:-    Tuesday 3rd November 2020, at 17:00 GMT.

There will be reduced resilience on the feed being worked on and only working on one unit at a time. The other feed and units will remain unaffected and continuing to provide full resilient protection.

The “At Risk” window will be kept to an absolute minimum and the UPS systems will be returned to full resilience at the earliest opportunity.
