As of 3:55PM EST, the PEER 1 Hosting NYC datacenter remains on generator power with fuel being provided through the remaining building supply.
Once the building fuel supply has been exhausted, we will be powering the generators through our day tank that has capacity to run between 60-90 minutes.
The fuel tank has arrived at our facility and due to flooding conditions in the basement caused by the weather, we are working on alternative methods of fuel delivery to the day tank located on the 17th floor. As of now, our datacenter team is carrying half-full 50 gallon barrels of diesel to our daily fuel reservoir on the 17th floor, until a more sustainable solution is reached.
While the fuel delivery system is being worked on, the PEER 1 datacenter team is manually carrying fuel loads to the day tank via stairs to ensure the day tank stays filled.
We all appreciate your patience, support and the kind words you've passed along in your emails, blogs and other social media outlets as we work to maintain power to the datacenter. This is especially meaningful in light of what many of you are currently experiencing on the East Coast.
Please continue to stay tuned to this forum for further updates.
