At 3:00AM MST, OIT's main data center experienced a major power failure causing all CU Boulder services to crash. This included email, VPN, all WWW, etc. Power was restored around 10:00AM MST
In the future, there are several "off campus" resources you can check for updates when major outages hit campus.
- The first is OIT's offsite alert page at https://oit.colorado.edu/service-alerts
- There is also an OIT Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/CUBoulderOIT
- And lastly, Tara and I will update this Blog when the issue does not impact our access to INSTAAR's website.
