This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Data center power efficiency increases, but so do power outages
An Uptime Institute survey finds the power
usage effectiveness of data centers is better than ever. However, power
outages have increased significantly. The leading causes of data center outages are power outages (33
percent), network failures (30 percent), IT staff or software errors (28
percent), on-premises non-power failure (12 percent), and third-party
service provider outages (31 percent). To err is human, and this
survey showed it. Nearly 80 percent said their most recent outage could
have been prevented. And that human error extends to management
decisions, Ascierto said.
