the Planet - outage, part 2

A nice summary of what happened is available at Data Center Knowledge:

'Extensive' Damage at The Planet's Data Center

>>Damage from Saturday night's explosion at The Planet's Houston data center was more extensive than initially believed, the company said late Sunday. CEO Doug Erwin reported that the explosion and fire destroyed the cabling under the first floor of the data center, known as H1. The Planet expects to have servers on the second floor of the facility back online early Monday, but Erwin said the downtime will be longer for 3,000 servers housed on the first floor.

LINX in London, as well, had a few problems:

The London Internet Exchange (LINX), one of the world's busiest peering points, was off-line for about an hour last Tuesday. The Register has the details on the incident, which was the second outage at LINX in the past month.
