(Resolved) Baltimore threatened

As of 16:45 UTC Oct 29, 2012, our Baltimore data center has seen no effects from the leading edges of hurricane Sandy. We are seeing many power outages in the local area, however, and we caution our hosting customers that while our power systems are highly redundant, it would be prudent to expect outages of connectivity, and possibly even power over the next 24-48 hours. The size of this storm is unusually large, and the effects expected to be severe. 

Update: As of 15:00 UTC, the Baltimore Data Center has not lost power or suffered a degradation in service, despite losing one of the redundant connections to the Internet. 

Resolved: The cyclone “Sandy” did not manage to take out power or significantly affect the Baltimore data center hosting or network services.
