Steacie Data Centre Power Failure

Steacie Data Centre Power Failure

Steacie Data center suffered a power loss today at around 8:00am, There was a scheduled Keele Campus Power Transfer at 0800, the utility power feed to Steacie got transferred from Keele substation to Steeles substation.  

During this transfer the Steacie data centre was expected to run on UPS battery power for 5 seconds. The 300KVA UPS failed and shut itself down.


Multiple systems are down and the UIT team is working on restoring services.


Thank you for your patience and for understanding the need to maintain and improve the Network Service to the York University community.
