Internap about Fisher Plaza outage


>>Update, 11:27 a.m.: Here's the alert sent out by Internap Network Services a short time ago to its data center tenants at Fisher Plaza.

At this time, there has been no significant change in status regarding the power outage at the SEF data center. Work is continuing on site to restore power as soon as possible.

The electrical vendor is onsite continuing to work with the electical switch gear at the SEF (Fisher) datacenter.

Customers in the SEF PNAP with IP connectivity continue to see their connectivity restored and stable; however, there may be further periods of degraded IP connectivity as the situation continues to develop.

Customers colocated in the SEF PNAP continue to see issues with a loss of power in some areas.

The focus of on-site personnel continues to be getting the rest of the generators online; however, we currently do not have an estimate as to when full generator capacity will be feeding the SEF facility.

We will continue to provide updates as they become available.

Fire disrupts stations at Seattle's Fisher Plaza

A summary of the event by Associated Press:

>>Fire disrupts stations at Seattle's Fisher Plaza

SEATTLE – A fire at a Seattle building disrupted a server farm that provides service to multiple Web sites - including one that facilitates electronic transactions for tens of thousands of businesses and Microsoft's new search site.

The fire also affected television and radio stations in Seattle that broadcast from the building.

The small fire broke out around 11 p.m. Thursday in the basement of Fisher Plaza at an electrical vault - a room of the building where city power lines meet the building's transformers, said Seattle City Light spokesman Scott Thomsen.


Rob Dunlop, vice president of operations for Fisher Communications, said one of the main clients who uses the data center is Internap Network Services Corp., a company that manages data centers and routes Internet traffic. Calls to Internap were no immediately returned Friday.

Locus Lingua blog:

When I get a phone call at 3am it is one of two things - either a relative has passed away or a server has gone down. Looking at those two options I would always take the latter. Bryan was on Caller ID, so I knew it was the latter. What I didn't realize was that this wasn't the ordinary check, reboot and "all's good" kind of server issue.

I tried to VPN into the machines and nothing was resolving, which is generally a Bad Thing. I dusted off my cardkey (unused for at least a year), grabbed my car keys and headed out the door in that daze that only a mom or dad knows during a 4am feeding. The usual fearful thoughts went through my head about the worst case scenarios.

Internap's Fisher Plaza facility in Seattle

Just a comment to an article, as usual to be double-checked:

>>The outage was caused by the fire at Internap's Fisher Plaza facility in Seattle. Lots of other services (including parts of Internap's CDN) were affected.

Major Outage at Seattle Data Center

from Data Center Knowledge, Internap seems to be involved (its data center in that location):

>>Many sites hosted at Seattle’s Fisher Plaza are offline amid widespread reports of a fire at the facility. The largest impact has been downtime at the payment portal, which has been offline for hours, meaning that its merchants have been unable to process credit card payments through their web sites.


An account on the NANOG mailing list reports that the incident triggered the sprinkler system in an electrical equipment room. As noted in the NANOG report, water damage could complicate recovery efforts.

This is the second major outage at Fisher Plaza in the past year. Last June many sites at the building were offline after an electrical event at the building. Fisher Plaza previously had a major outage in 2006 (more details here on that incident). The owner of the building, which also houses the operations of Seattle TV and radio stations, has been attemtpting to sell Fisher Plaza.

The incident is being discussed at Web Hosting Talk and on Twitter.

London Stock Exchange to abandon failed Windows platform


>>London Stock Exchange to abandon failed Windows platform

Anyone who was ever fool enough to believe that Microsoft software was good enough to be used for a mission-critical operation had their face slapped this September when the LSE (London Stock Exchange)'s Windows-based TradElect system brought the market to a standstill for almost an entire day. While the LSE denied that the collapse was TradElect's fault, they also refused to explain what the problem really wa. Sources at the LSE tell me to this day that the problem was with TradElect.

Since then, the CEO that brought TradElect to the LSE, Clara Furse, has left without saying why she was leaving. Sources in the City-London's equivalent of New York City's Wall Street--tell me that TradElect's failure was the final straw for her tenure. The new CEO, Xavier Rolet, is reported to have immediately decided to put an end to TradElect.

Denver cyberknife

from the IV MB, by gila_munster1:

>>Denver CyberKnife

July 2nd, 2009

I have recently accepted a new position in a brand new clinic opening in South Denver called Denver CyberKnife. It is exciting as it is a new learning experience for me and will be a challenging new role as CyberKnife Coordinator. This is a disconnect from everything I have been doing up until this point. I will be more managerial and organizational in this role, instead of “nursy”. I will still be performing a small nursing role with educating my patients and administering medications on a limited basis.

CyberKnife technology is truly amazing. I hadn’t really known what it was or what it could do until I accepted my new role. CyberKnife performs stereotactic radiosurgery. Big fancy words for using very high doses of radiation to obliterate tumors in the body. Not to be confused with Gammaknife, that is only approved for intracranial use. Also, not to be confused with standard radiation therapy. CyberKnife is used on tumors in the brain, spine, lung, prostate, live, pancreas and other tissues in the body. Not yet approved for breast tumors, but studies are being done presently to see if it will be approved in the future. Not only does it obliterate tumors, it does this with sub-millimeter accuracym which means that we can treat the tumor with radiation without damaging the healthy tissue surrounding the tumor.

The linear accelerator (machine that produces the radiation beam) is mounted to a robotic arm that is linked with multiple computer programs that can track the movement of the tumor during treatment. It is hard to explain in a few sentences, so I will link you to our website to learn more. Let me tell you though, it is truyl impressive to watch. The success rate is huge and to do this with no pain or blood and minimal side effects is amazing!

Our commercial will be playing on local stations starting July 6th, but you can view it here:

Our website is very informational We have videos that can show the process the patient goes through as well as the treatment itself. It is truly amazing to watch in person.

We have named our CyberKnife robotic arm Ray, and you can follow Ray on twitter at He tweets often about the occurences in the office and educates it’s followers about the treatments.

You can also become a fan on facebook

I am so excited to be a part of this cutting edge technology that looks like it should be in the new Star Trek movie. Please learn more about where the future of medicine lies…

Apple has let loose a number of revealing new patent applications that cover some interesting technologies that could be used in future iPhones.

Perhaps most interesting amongst the patent applications is the acknowledgment by Apple that despite the many advantages of the iPhone's multi-touch screen, a lack of tactile feedback remains its biggest disadvantage]

Equinix Hit By Outages in Sydney, Paris

Data Center Knowledge on the Equinix outages - adding Paris to the list:

>>Equinix data centers in Paris and Sydney, Australia have experienced power outages this morning, according to widespread reports from affected customers.


The power outage at the Equinix PA2 Saint-Denis IBX Center has caused downtime for several prominent customers, including the video site DailyMotion and the Paris operations of the European web hosting provider ClaraNet. Early media reports suggest the facility-level loss of power may have been brief, but some customers sites are taking longer to recover.

The Saint-Denis data center is a 65,000 square foot facility. Equinix has one other Paris data center, and a third facility is under construction.

NYSE Cuts Trade Times to 5 Milliseconds

from the WSJ:

>>NYSE Cuts Trade Times to 5 Milliseconds

NYSE Euronext cut order-execution times 20-fold at the New York Stock Exchange, part of an effort to catch up to faster competitors that have taken market share.

With the implementation of a new system for processing orders on the NYSE, customers will see trades executed within five milliseconds, compared with 105 milliseconds previously. As recently as 2007, the time was 350 milliseconds.


While NYSE Euronext has juggled fees to stay competitive, it also is counting on new technology to draw traders, with the new order processing system replacing its 33-year-old SuperDOT platform. The exchange operator also is building a new low-latency network for data centers in New York and London.

The moves aim to reassert NYSE Euronext's dominance in U.S. stock trade, badly dented by intense competition in recent years. This month saw the exchange's share of U.S. stock trading slide to 29%; in March 2008, it had half the market.

Chief Executive Duncan Niederauer this year targeted a 50% market share in stocks listed on the NYSE, a goal he has acknowledged as "aggressive." In late June, NYSE Euronext claimed about 39.9% of trade in so-called Tape A securities.

State of the (Voxel) Network Address

from the Voxel blog, a few interesting Equinix notes:

>>First, I’m pleased to announce the expansion of the Voxel network to Seattle, WA.

Not to overshadow this announcement, Voxel has also gone live with its Singapore (SIN1) facility, our first deployment in Asia. We are providing our full suite of services, including virtualized and dedicated server hosting and content delivery, out of this location.

Some notes from the field:

Why Singapore?

Raj, our CEO, posted to our blog last summer, explaining our reasons for opening an office in Singapore:

With an office in place, opening a datacenter in Asia was next on our plate. Singapore appealed to us for a number of reasons:

  1. It was “centrally” located, providing reasonable path latencies and transport options into Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, and mainland China, to name a few locations.
  2. We were able to find a datacenter with plenty of available space and power, and reasonable connectivity options out.
  3. Having an office in close proximity makes operations easy, even as we develop infrastructure and systems to keep our staff away as much as possible.


We decided to go with Equinix as our facilities provider, occupying a large caged suite in their flagship “SG1″ facility. We searched long and hard, and found Equinix to be the best solution as a neutral facility in the country, with vendor and peering options blowing away the competition. At the risk of sounding like a press release, the Equinix Asia folk are true professionals, continually setting a high bar and proceeding to meet or exceed expectations. Thanks to the tireless efforts of their sales, project management, and network teams, we were able to turn up with no major snags, and following a fairly aggressive schedule. I’d highly recommend them to any organization looking to expand into the Asian market and unable to have all their needs met by Voxel directly.

(One anecdote here: you can e-mail Equinix’s Asia support center at any time, day or night, with odd requests such as “hey, could you please grab a laptop, console up this newly-arrived device, and give it an IP and local login?” and receive a call ten minutes later asking if you’re able to log in. Remote-hands organizations elsewhere would be well-served to follow this lead!)

Equinix Sydney outage?


>>Equinix power outage downs VoIP, tweets up a storm

Twitter has been flooded with complaints about a power outage at Equinix's Sydney data centre which apparently knocked out data and network systems, including VoIP.

Equinix's Sydney office could not give any details about the outage at this time.

VoIP service provider MyNetFone issued a statement on its blog about a power outage today.

“We apologise for the service interruption on Thursday 2nd July 2009 between 11:40am EST and 1:00pm. The problem was caused by a nation-wide power outage which triggered a total loss of power at our co-location facility in Sydney.”

According to MyNetFone, as soon as power was restored our engineers were on-site restoring our systems.

“There was no loss of data, and the service has now been fully restored. We are awaiting a formal incident report from our co-location provider who is meant to have emergency power systems in place for just such an incident. Clearly things did not work as planned.”

MyNetfone uses the Symbio Networks platform at Equinix for VoIP peering.

According to AusNOG mailing list member Patrick Wu, “Our gear lost power at Equinix, plus our PoP at Petersham (in Sydney) lost power and UPS kicked in... Some of our customer sites went out in the west as well.”

Here are what some posts to Twitter related about the outage.

@alanjlee: @jodiem Could be related to a power issue at Equinix in Sydney.. a bunch of sites went offline/back online such as Yahoo.

AtlantiCare's high-tech cancer center in Egg Harbor Township NJ opens (CK operable in fall)

from the IV MB, by yyy60:

>>AtlantiCare's high-tech cancer center in Egg Harbor Township NJ opens (CK operable in fall)

** there are 4 CK in NJ. AtlantiCare's will be the 5th. St. Peter’s Hospital in New Brunswick will be the 6th (construction complete late 2009) **

The Daily Journal, NJ
July 1, 2009

Many cancer patients are senior citizens, and they have greater prospects of surviving with advanced treatment now available at the state-of-the-art newly opened AtlantiCare Cancer Center on English Creek Avenue in Egg Harbor Township.

Anchoring the center's diagnostic and treatment suites is its "linear accelerator," which is one of the most sophisticated cancer treatment modalities. It looks like "Star Trek" medicine and is top-of-line technology. Slated to become operable this fall is an even more advanced tumor-treating device -- the Cyberknife, a non-invasive robotic radiosurgery system.

Craig Keyser, chairman of the ARMC board of trustees declared, "We envisioned a bright, airy, comfortable, positive, hopeful, thoughtfully designed cancer treatment center that would help make the treatment of cancer just a little bit better, and everything we envisioned has come to life and then some."

We looked long and hard for a good location to offer our services in Hong Kong. Internap was able to provide us not the cheapest, but the best solution. We are sure the quality of the bandwidth and their services, will allow us to uphold our standards of customer service to our expanding customer base located all over the world.

Due to the huge price difference in Hong Kong for bandwidth compared to other locations around the world, we are unable to offer this server as part of our normal packages. We will be adding a new package to our lineup called "StrongVPN Premium". This Premium package will allow customers to access all servers (Regular, Open and HK) and also have increased number of switches available per month.

The price for the Premium StrongVPN Package is yet to be determined, but should be around the $30 a month range.
