Following the fire which destroyed its SBG2 data center in Strasbourg on March 10, French cloud service provider OVHcloud has promised to set up a data center fire research lab. The company continues to work on restoring data from customer servers at the site by the Rhine on the German border. The provider abandoned efforts to restart the adjacent SBG1 data center at the weekend, after a smaller fire in a room of disconnected batteries. The root cause of the fire is the subject of an investigation involving police, insurance, and independent experts, said Klaba: "It will take a few months to have the conclusion and we will share it with you. Klaba spoke of different fire prevention and suppression standards, which vary from country to country, and even within data centers, depending on whether a room holds mechanical or electronic equipment. He promised that OVHcloud would "oversecure" all its own data centers, as well as set up a laboratory to evolve standards for fire handling in data centers - whose results would be shared with the industry. I want to share the conclusion of this lab with all the industry, because The servers from rooms A to D are going into the SBG4 data center on the Strasbourg site, while those from Room E are going "through our Croix factory," where they will be rebuilt and racked, before shipping to different data centers in Roubaix and Gravelines.
Klaba: "Nobody wants to have this kind of incident"
Restarting all the servers
