+ - Aussie data centres brace for dust storm barrage->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Data centres and telcos in the Australian cities of Sydney and Brisbane have shut off external ventilation systems, restricted loading dock access and attended false alarms after a major dust storm choked the cities today. The storm is said to be the worst of its type ever recorded in Australia. Macquarie Telecom disengaged automatic deployment of fire-prevention gas from the fire alarm to prevent gas being released on a false alarm. Other major data centre operators reported clogged air filters and heat exchangers and said they would be performing cleaning and maintenance operations this week."
