Large swaths of Northern California, including the UC Berkeley Campus, are under a Public Safety Power Shutoff due to high winds and the associated wildfire risks. Our servers are located in the campus Data Center which is protected by a high capacity UPS. We expect that our servers will remain up for the duration of the outage. Thus far Internet connectivity also remains up although this depends on factors outside of the Data Center.

Keep a stiff upper lip everyone.

It's too bad a generator isn't there that has a natural gas feed.

Thanks for the post.
Hopefully a few people will see it in their Manager notices, and it will reduce the questions should things go down.

Is the internet connection down now? I haven't been able to connect to an upload or download server for a few hours now. Just how big is the UPS? Would be interesting to see pictures and a description of it at a later, less stressful date. Hope all is well

I checked my online boxes (remotely... at work) and they have uploaded/reported work as of three mins. ago. Also no complaints from anyone else. This is the best thread to check for outages... it gets updated quickly if anything goes down.

Let me know if you want a quote to move to Amazon Web Services. I'm a certified DevOps Professional, wouldn't mind finding a technical account manager at AWS to review the architecture to avoid hardware drama like this on such a large community application.

Unless AWS is going to donate it, the price is too high. The Regents of the University of California (Seti@home is part) are a 501(c)3.
