Bugaboo unavailable due to a power failure Saturday, Aug. 29

Bugaboo became unavailable Saturday afternoon (August 29) due to a power failure at Simon Fraser University.  This notice will be updated when more information is available.

Power has just been restored (Aug. 30, 21:45). Nevertheless, Bugaboo is not expected to be available before sometime Aug. 31. depending on how quickly filesystems can be brought back online.

Another update: while power has been restored to the University, it has not been restored to the Water Tower Building that houses the Bugaboo facility. Thus at this point (23:20) it cannot be predicted when the system will become available.

Aug. 31, 9:15am - Update: There is still no power in the data centre that houses the Bugaboo facility.

Sep. 1, 9:15am - Update: Power to the building was restored last night. However, the switch gear that is supposed to switch power back to the data centre failed. In short: the data centre continues to be without power. Electrical engineers have been called, however, no estimate on when the power will be restored can be made at this point.

Sep. 1, 20:00 - Update: the switch gear has been repaired temporarily and the Bugaboo system has been brought back up. It is fully available now.
