A subject line you never want to see from PowerSchool
"Powerschool Software as a Service Data Center HVAC issues" along with the word "catastrophic" as part of the message.  Good way to end a Thursday.  Oh my!!

It reminds me of when the lights went out during the 2013 Super Bowl.


CenturyLink's datacenter outage resulted from a burst pipe in the center's cooling equipment.  Centurylink has a repair crew onsite working to fix the pipe. We do not have an exact ETA on the completion of this repair, but we are closely monitoring progress with CenturyLink and we expect the repairs to be complete in the next 12 hours. 

Once the pipe repair is complete, CenturyLink will restart their cooling system and will authorize us to restore power to our servers. We have members of our staff onsite and standing by (24/7) waiting for authorization to restart from CenturyLink, we will initiate PowerSchool server restarts and restore access to our hosted environments as soon as CenturyLink indicates it is safe to restart.

PowerSchool is expected to resume operating normally and we do not expect and loss of data that was input prior to the shutdown earlier today.
