Submission + - How Peer1 Survived Sandy (slashdot.org)

Nerval's Lobster writes: "When hurricane Sandy knocked out the electricity in lower Manhattan, data-center operator Peer1 took extreme measures to keep its servers humming, assembling a bucket brigade that carried diesel fuel up several flights of stairs. For this installment of our “Surviving Sandy” interview series (we previously talked to CoreSite and IPR), we sat down with Ted Smith, senior vice president of operations for Peer1, who talked about the decisions made as the floodwaters rose, the main generators went offline, and the changes his company’s made in the aftermath of the storm."
