Outage: Equinix LD8 Reachability

Statement from LINX

At approximately 04:30BST Equinix lost power to their LD8 datacentre, which also hosts one of the eleven points of presence for LINX LON1 and LON2 peering LANs. As a result all LINX members connected to those LANs at LD8 will have lost connection to LON1 and/or LON2 when they lost power to their own equipment. Simultaneously we lost power to our own A and B power feeds and subsequently our equipment within LD8.

We anticipate that approximately 150 LINX members will have been directly affected by this incident. Additionally, LINX members located in other facilities may have lost or impaired interconnection with those members who are directly affected.

Once power to the building is restored we will start bringing equipment back online.

We will update this page when we have further material news.

11.46: Power is now being restored to the site and LINX equipment is in the process of being brought live again.

13:42: All of LINX devices have been restored. It is still at risk as Equinix continue to work on power in the LINX suite and other areas of the data centre.

Equinix have confirmed that complete and stable power was restored to the whole site by 21:49 on August 18th.
