ETSU’s Information Technology is acquiring new generators to power the two primary data centers on campus during extended power outages.
The generators will be installed during the weekend of Memorial Day, a time when most university services are at a minimum.
At 12:01am on Saturday, May 28th, all ETSU servers, networking equipment and telephone equipment will begin a shutdown process. The power will be cut to the buildings by 7:30am. The implementation of the generators will take approximately 8 hours. Once power is restored, the servers, networking equipment and telephone equipment will be restarted. This process will take about 5 hours. Every effort is being made to keep the outage as short as possible.
