There was an extended outage for several web hosts and servers from approximately 12.40pm today caused by a problem with Blue Square House 2 NOC in Maidenhead, Berkshire, England.

The initial explanation from Blue Square House 2 NOC …

   At approx 12:40pm today we experienced an issue with one of our four
   UPS systems whilst carrying our routine testing which resulted in
   this one UPS system powering off.

   This caused a short brown out to approx 30% of customers equipment
   located in BlueSquare 2 & 3 as the unit powered off in an unusual
   way. The remaining three UPS systems took the load, and continue to
   provide power to the sites.

   Full UPS protection is in place and we are running as normal and our
   UPS vendors are on-site investigating with senior management.

   We aim to provide a further update within the next 3 hours.

   We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Remarkable how an UPS system can get ……. interrupted.
