MCS has completed maintenance on our automatic standby generator systems to allow for increased monitoring and higher availability. With traditional generator systems, a unit will turn on once a week and run for a short period to both test the system and keep it functioning properly when not in use. If a problem is detected, or the generator is not able to start, data center staff would not know until the next manual inspection for error codes. Our new monitoring system provides a 3rd party, out of band notification via cell service. Not only are our staff notified if there is a problem, we are provided with more health information than was previously available via the generators on-board systems. This monitoring combined with regular preventative maintenance should keep our data systems running even in the event of an emergency.
