SSP shuts data centre down.
Insurance tech biz SSP Worldwide has decided to permanently decommission one of its data centres, following a huge outage that lasted for ten days.
A power blackout hit SSP s Solihull Data Centre on 26 August, which fried its HPE Storage Area Network.
SSP was working with the US vendor to resurrect its systems when the work was interrupted by a recurrence of the original problem.
Laurence Walker, group chief exec of SSP said:
"Our Solihull data centre has a more traditional daily back-up, so to restore services to these customers we are working through a process of unpacking data from back-up discs, re-coupling it with application data and then reconfiguring systems for individual customers.
