Data Center Staffing Disasters

Steve Jones reads an after-action report:

There was a failure recently at an Azure data center in Australia when a utility power sag caused equipment to trip offline at one of the Azure data centers in Australia. You can read about it here, but essentially the headline is that there were only three people on site when the incident occurred, and that caused them to be unable to restart the equipment in time before an outage occurred.

Read on to learn more about why this failed and what Steve has seen in the wild.
