I have to thank the boss for this link. Check out an article at E-Commerce Times about a Data Center in Seattle that crashed on July 30th due to a "string of malfunctions in the facility's electrical power system."
I continue to think back to what makes people decide on location when picking a data center for their infrastructure. Brown-outs in Texas, power issues in Seattle, hurricanes in the south.... and yet these mega Data Centers still go up in these places.
Anwyay....it is a very good article with a time-line of events that surrounded the outage.
