Scheduled upgrade of UPS in Carlow data centre 28.9.2021

We are scheduling a maintenance window to allow for the upgrade of  the UPS in the Carlow Data Centre on Tuesday 28/09/2021 from 09:00  to 19:00.

The new UPS is replacing a standby UPS which was installed as a temporary replacement back in June when a fault occurred in the original unit.

In order to complete the works safely, we need to place the current UPS into bypass mode to isolate it from mains supply, thus services in the Carlow Data centre should be considered “at risk” due to the loss of UPS redundancy for the duration of  the maintenance window. We do not expect any service interruption during the maintenance window but we will have engineers on site as a precaution.


28.09.2021 09:45 The maintenance has started

28.09.2021 19:09 The UPS is still being load tested and the maintenance window has been extended by 60 mins.

28.09.2021 20:18  The maintenance has been completed. The UPS is on load and no services were impacted.
