    Cyberjaya1 data center is previously Myloca. In which I think a lot of web hosts got their server there. I guess we (the customers and the web hosts) can do nothing about data center maintenance.

    Angry

    I've also got the same message about this outage on 14-15 April. I understand that sometimes maintenance needs to be done on any system.

    However, what I don't understand is why do they have to shut down the full operation - web & email services. I'm pretty sure they could possibily do the maintenance in some proper stages, thus affecting less people.

    And don't tell me they don't have any backup servers?

    This goes to show that a lot of improvements can still be done in the operation of a datacenter especially in Malaysia.

    Until next time, explore the possibilities.

    I wonder if they postponed it due to their own technical reasons or due to complaints from their customers.

    This was the shutdown I referred to in:
    http://www.webmastermalaysia.com/showthread.php?t=9162

    Now after waiting for a month for this to happen, it is cancelled 3 days before the date and we have to wait and see when they will do the maintenance again.

    I was informed that the data center management realized and understand that shutting down the entire data center for whole day is a bad idea. Hence, they have postponed the maintenance while they are preparing more more backup power supply. That means, the downtime will be minimized instead of 24 hours.

    The new date for this maintenance is yet to be confirmed.

    I will say still there is a need to perform this maintenance to fix once and for all their backup power systems, generators ... etc. Otherwise, is like a time bomb, where no one will never know when there is power outage next time, will the gen set, UPS kick in automatically.

    It doesn't say much for them that they didn't realise this in the first place...

    Yes, the maintenance was supposed to be for fixing problems that happened 6 months or so ago. It's bad enough that it has taken so long to get to solving the problem, and the time-bomb has already been ticking all this while.
