RSO: Critical Cooling Failure (Resolved)

Affecting System - Cooling Failure | Priority - Critical

At 1:30 AM CST our datacenter reported to us that they have had a cooling failure. At 5:30 AM CST cooling services were restored to the Datacenter. As a result of this cooling failure, many servers have been overheated. From the moment the cooling was restored, our technicians have been working to restore and bring each node back online. Most services have been restored, however, at this time nodes 1, 11, 5, 6, and 8 remain down. Servers Reseller2 and Shared2 are on these affected nodes.

We are working to restore the services on these servers but they are caused by critical hardware failures. 8:00 PM CST is our best estimate for when things will return to normal. One month compensation will be given to all clients affected by this outage. If service is not restored by 8:00 PM CST, all clients affected will recieve two months of free time.
