Black-Building-Test successful: Long-term power supply proved!
Yesterday a so-called “Black Building Test” (BBT) as part of our ongoing maintenance and testing of technical systems was successfully performed.
During this test we simulated a complete blackout of the public power supply in our data center. In “real life” such a blackout can be caused, for instance, by works on mains electricity or through lightning strikes in high-voltage power lines – just to name a few scenarios.
Precisely in order to be independent of those power failure scenarios, we have a powerful, uninterrupted power backup for our data center.
The successful BB test that took place yesterday proves us, and thus our clients, continuing readiness of the redundantly configured UPS systems with appropriate batteries in our datacenter. These machines provide uninterrupted power to our servers during a power failure…
… before our emergency diesel genset, with 1800 kW and more than 50.000l fuel in its tank, is in operation and does supply the whole power needed by our servers completely independent from the electricity grid for a long time…
