  Power Maintenance – Sunday 6th Dec 2009
Posted by: webnetics - 05-12-09, 06:24 AM - Forum: Network Status / Server Upgrades - No Replies

The facility engineering team will be conducting power maintenance beginning at 02:00 GMT lasting until 06:00 on Sunday 6th Dec 2009.

Scope of work: Functional test of the new equipment installed during the maintenance on the 4th Dec 2009.

The commercial supply will be disconnected in a controlled manner by power engineers. This work will ensure the correct operation of the breakers in the Low Voltage equipment in switching the power source on to the Generators. A full risk assessment has been carried out and as an additional precaution; manufacturers will be onsite along with our data-centre engineers.

  Network Power Failure
Posted by: webnetics - 27-11-09, 08:26 AM - Forum: Network Status / Server Upgrades - No Replies

Dear Valued Customer,

At approximately 16:48 GMT the Stratford, London facility lost mains power from the power grid.

The time-line of events is as follows:

16:48 - Power to site lost - running on UPS.
17:15 - UPS systems depleted, generators failed to start
17:30 - Generators failovers failed to function despite multiple attempts - The power engineers were dispatched.18:32 - The power engineers arrived on site.
18:54 - The power engineer estimates 30-45 minutes to return power to site.
19:16 - The power was returned to site and the process of booting up each rack commenced.
19:35 - All racks powered up and brought on-line.

The last twenty-four hours have seen numerous power grid blips but the system as designed have taken the load with the UPS battery backup and generators keeping the facility live, ensuring an un-interrupted service.

Yesterday however, at 16:48 a failure in the control boards prevented the generators from powering the facility once the power from the grid failed, a manual bypass was installed to get the facility on-line.

Virtual Web Designs will be releasing our own Source Control System within the next 8 weeks.

VrSourceControl was developed from CVS and SubVersion to help us track our own projects, documents, source-code and images because we found that these existing systems were difficult to install or overly complicated. We specifically didn't want concurrent editing of files, and wanted a web-based system written in PHP and uses MySQL as the database, which was easy to manage. So we developed VrSourceControl.

VrSourceControl General Features

· Store Text & Binary Files.
· Multi-User
· Check-In / Check-Out - File locking by user.
· Text Files Stored in Full or as Different versions
· Compress Binaries with gzip.
· PHP Code Highlighting.
· PHP code is given coloured highlighting when viewing the file.
· Full History Versioning. - Go back to any previous version - of any file or project.
· HTTP Up/Download: Get/Put Zips. Upload or Get whole projects, sets of files, or individual files as Zip files from your browser.
· Project Tree View.
· Search. Find files with matching names, content and more...
· Online File Editing. Edit files online (in your working directory) with a text editor.
· Output Macros. Include meta info in output source files (File name, path, version, project version). Macros are automatically reverted when checking code in.
· File Branching. Store multiple versions of the same file.
· File-Level User Access. Define which users can access which files or directories individually.
· Project Build Options Include different sets of files in different builds

Features to be incorporated

· Full Bug Tracking System
· Re-design user interface for public use
