miller60 writes: "Despite rumors about employee sabotage and EPO buttons, yesterday's downtime at 365 Main was the result of a less sensational culprit in many data center outages: several generators failed to start when the grid power went down. The initial incident report from 365 Main says at least three of the facility's eight colo rooms lost power as a result.
