Submission + - Aussie data centres brace for dust storm barrage (itnews.com.au)

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.
