Monday data center tidbits.

First item up is the story that Virginia has had massive service failures in state departments because their $2.3B outsourcing deal with Northrop Grumman neglected to require network redundancy. What is it with providers these days just happily letting customers walk off the cliff? 12 outages and 100 hours of downtime in 5 WEEKS! It’s like IBM and Texas where IBM knew a piece of equipment was problematic and allowed it to fail without backup because backup wasn’t specified. Go the extra mile and be the hero, people!

Worst capacity planning award: Ebay kills its search functionality for most of the day Saturday. Gee, people are going to do more selling coming up to Christmas, who’d have thought?
