Coming (or going) simply earlier than the IPO, this outage is due to this fact a humiliation. “Just a few months in the past you had a downtime of over 8 hours due to the poor measurements you tackle the protection of the buildings… As quickly as this downtime is over I’m transferring out of OVH,” said one disgruntled buyer.

The firm hit the headlines earlier this 12 months following a hearth at its Strasbourg premises on 10 March that worn out two information centres. At least immediately’s incident was nowhere close to the size of that catastrophe. ®
