Information Services Allen McTernan Building Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Maintenance

As part of our ongoing infrastructure maintenance schedule, we are required to replace the batteries in the main data centre UPS, which provides backup power to the majority of services housed in Allen McTernan, in the event of a power outage.
This work will take place on the 17th December and will last one working day.
Whilst this work is ongoing the existing services will be powered directly from the mains supply, but we will have no battery backup in the event of a mains power failure.
Services should therefore be considered at risk during Monday the 17th and Tuesday the 18th of December.
All services run from Allen McTernan should be backed up in advance of this date.

Any questions, please submit a ticket to the Help Desk
