5.7.2023 1500 CST At approxmately 1500 hours CST, the primary utlitiy transformer failed. This caused a drop and surge in one of the 3 phases. Out backup power kicked in at this time. During the transfer an issue occurred causing a power drop in the datacenter. As a result one of our core switches failed to start properly causing a network issue to certain segments of the datacenter. At this time we are on backup power and the utility is replacing the transformer. We are also working the switch issue to restore connectivity to the problem areas.
