We are currently facing a major incident in our Strasbourg datacentre, with a fire declared in the SBG2 building.
Firefighters intervened immediately on the spot but were unable to control the SBG2 fire.
As a precautionary measure, the electricity was cut off on the whole site, which impacts all our services at SBG1, SBG2, SBG3 and SBG4.
If your production is in Strasbourg, we recommend that you activate your Business Recovery Plan.
All our teams are mobilized alongside the firefighters.
We will keep you posted on this as soon as we have more information.

I'm glad we are no longer hosted there. But still a big loss. :(


I'm hosted with OVH myself though the server my VPS is on is at a data center somewhere in Canada so this doesn't affect me. I am seriously wondering how an entire data center was destroyed by fire though. I thought modern fire protection systems for this type of environment would stop a fire before it got that big
