Does Dreamhost have backup power generator?


#1

Does Dreamhost have backup power generator in their server building now? I have heard many horror stories about how all DH servers all went down due to blackout/building lost power/power outage …

Don’t worry. If the power goes out they can still run the fridge from a spare car battery they keep behind the photocopier.

Their datacenters have backup generators, but as you know this doesn’t completely eliminate power problems. :slight_smile:

Read the DH blogs to find out what really happened, but yes, backup power is available except when the Garland Building sucks. (Which explains the cluster moves to the other data center, to take pressure off the power and backup power capacity at Garland)
