[Resolved] Partial outage on Xen cloud in Amsterdam 1 datacenter

A power distribution unit failure at our Amsterdam 1 datacenter has this morning taken out about 1/4 of our Xen hosts located in Amsterdam 1. Engineers are en route to switch it out.

In the mean time we have rebooted all affected virtual servers using spare capacity on the remaining Xen hosts. No loss of data has occurred as our redundant centralised storage servers have not been affected.

Our customer portal, shared.anu.net Lasso/PHP hosting server and a handful of customer VMs were briefly affected by the outage but have all now been restored.
