Planned 'black building test' SmartDC 7th of May 2019

On the 7th of May SmartDC, the datacenter in which our servers are located, will perform a planned Back up power test. This will be a so-called 'black building test'.

Explanation: A Black Building test is a test in which the full IT load will be passed on to the backup power installation. During this test, all UPS'es, generator and power switches on the main board will be tested for its correct operation. Nonpreferent electrical power, e.g. B-feed can drop during this test. It will take approximately 15 seconds to switch from grid power to backup power. Afterwards the generators will be live for another hour to test their performance.

This test will be conducted by trained and certified technical staff accompanied with our vendors.


Maintenance start: 07/05/2019 07:30 CEST Maintenance end: 07/05/2019 16:00 CEST Expected impact: If all goes as planned no services will be affected during this test. In the unfortunate event that something unexpected happens our technical support team is standby.

Cloud platform Short outage Cloud PLatform

One of our Ceph nodes started blocking requests starting at 2019-04-15 16:01:06 CEST

At 2019-04-15 16:09:18 CET I issued a reboot on that node. From that moment on the requests were further processed by our other nodes in the cluster. It took some time until everything was normal again (including Ceph recovery of the rebooted node). Around 16:15:00 that node was back online and recovery of Ceph began.

March the 29th we experienced a very similar issue. After comparing the 2 incidents we found out that this issue is related to our update process. We have further enhanced our update process and will keep monitoring both the current situation as well as upcoming updates.
