Strasbourg datacentre: latest information

Roubaix, France | 23 April 2021 - 4:00 pm (CET)

Situation update for 23 April 2021:

  • For unaffected SBG1 services, as well as SBG3 and SBG4:
    • All SBG3 and SBG4 Bare Metal, VPS and Public Cloud services have been restored and made available to customers.
    • The physical migration of the SBG1 infrastructures to the other datacentres in our Strasbourg network is currently being completed. There are 150 servers to still be reconnected and this operation is expected to be completed by the middle of next week. 
  • For affected services in SBG1 and SBG2:
    • Our teams are continuing to support SBG2 customers with replacement solutions, as well as implementing their disaster recovery plans.
    • 14,472 Bare Metal servers were delivered as part of the implementation of alternative solutions in other datacentres.
    • 30,775 VPS have been restored, and the last 5,900 VPS services will be restored before the end of the month in SBG3 so that customers can keep the same IP addresses for their service(s). 
    • All Public Cloud services have been offered in our other datacentres.
  • In total, we estimate the impact as follows:
    • Currently, 113,000 of them have been fully recovered.
    • 120,000 services have been fully or partially affected.

OVHcloud took the decision to adopt free pricing measures for customers whose services were impacted. The practical arrangements for this will be communicated and offered to customers at the end of the month.

 

Follow-up on the incident 

When the fire broke out on 10 March at 00:47, our detection systems were instantly activated and our teams were able to respond according to the protocol in place for the energy rooms, where the smoke was detected.  Firefighters arrived on site very quickly, and their operations could only be carried out after the electrical power was switched off for the entire site, including all four datacentres. 

The OVHcloud teams are studying images from the 300 surveillance cameras installed as part of the Strasbourg site security measures, in order to draw key lessons that will result in an action plan to maximise the resilience of our infrastructures and cloud solutions. 

Investigations by the authorities and insurance companies are ongoing in order to determine the timeline, outbreak and spread of the fire, and thus identify its cause. This type of investigation takes up to several months to complete. The action plan to improve the resilience of our infrastructures will therefore be enhanced once conclusions have been drawn from the investigation.

 

Mobilising the OVHcloud ecosystem to offer solutions to our customers:

From the morning of 10 March, our teams were mobilised with one goal: to restore at least an equivalent service as soon as possible, for as many of our customers as possible. The following priorities were set to guide our actions: 

  • Secure the site to ensure a safe environment for teams.
  • Restore services or equivalent services to customers.
  • Provide alternative infrastructures in our other datacentres for affected customers.
  • Offer support for customers in implementing their Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) mechanisms.

At the Strasbourg site: 

  • Within 48 hours, our teams prepared to be deployed in Strasbourg. More than 30 OVHcloud employees were put on a rotating schedule to work on the site, 24/7, to carry out the security measures and deploy the initial plan that would enable the SBG1, SBG3 and SBG4 datacentres to be gradually restarted from 17th March. The restart schedule was set out in strict compliance with a particularly stringent safety protocol.
  • A few days later, our teams were reinforced by our partners, who worked closely with us on: 
    • Electrical, climate and networks engineering: several partners, specialised in cabling and restoring datacentre pillars, worked to support the restoration of the power, the network distribution and the cooling systems.
    • Civil engineering: securing the SBG2 site and strengthening the structure.
    • Logistics: deploying stock and setting up logistics between various OVHcloud sites within 2 days. 
    • Environmental experts: conducted the smoke impact assessment on site. 
    • General management: deploying a campaign headquarters in the future SBG5 datacentre, with a canteen that could accommodate over 100 employees in compliance with Covid protocols.
    • Functional cleaning of servers impacted by soot: more than 80 specialists were deployed across the different floors at SBG3, cleaning up to 600-700 servers per day.
    • Data recovery specialists: worked to try and recover data from hard drives in the rooms affected by the fire. 
  • Our teams had to suspend and then fully resume this work after smoke was detected in a battery room from SBG1 (the smoke caused no further damage). This forced us to cut the power supply from SBG1 and SBG4 again on 19 March, in order to allow the firefighters to intervene at 7 pm. This delayed the resumption of services, which were then able to resume on 22 March. 
  • The teams followed the set reboot protocol (uninstall, clean, inspect, reinstall, start up) in compliance with security measures: room by room, aisle by aisle, rack by rack, server by server.
  • At the same time, our teams and partners cleaned the servers where traces of soot could be detected, then proceeded to physically migrate the servers from SBG1 to the other Strasbourg datacentres (SBG3 and SBG4).
  • Some servers in SBG1 underwent soot removal, where the process of cleaning and restoring them to service proved to be more delicate and therefore took longer than for the servers in SBG3. To speed up this complex and time-consuming process, a new cleaning chain was set up in our factory in Croix, and thanks to the support of our partners who trained our teams to carry out the tasks in parallel and increase the cleaning capacity.
  • A team of 20 people remain active in Strasbourg to proceed with the next steps of construction work.

 

At our production line in Croix: 

OVHcloud is based on an integrated model, which means we can manage our entire value chain using two production units: in France and in Canada. With this industry expertise, we were able to implement an emergency plan as early as 10 March to offer infrastructure capacity to our customers, and urgently produce nearly 18,000 servers in a matter of weeks: 

  • From the morning of 10 March, a stock of 2,000 servers was released and made available to our customers to support their migrations to the other 15 datacentres in our European network. 
  • By doubling the production lines, the production rate at our Croix site was increased from 1,500 servers per week to more than 3,000.
  • This pace has been maintained since then, in order to compensate for the destruction of the 14,046 servers that were in operation in the SBG2 datacentre.
  • On 17 March, after a comprehensive review, a dedicated workstation was set up to clean the Strasbourg servers exposed to the soot, in order to restore their required working condition. Our partners have trained our industry team employees in order to speed up the pace of this cleaning campaign.
  • In parallel with our production activities, on 11 March, two express containers dedicated to the network and high-voltage electricity were prepared in Croix and sent out for installation in Strasbourg on 12 March.
  • The teams remain mobilised on the physical migration site of the SBG1 infrastructures after detailed in-factory cleaning. We estimate that this work should be completed by the middle of next week.

We would like to thank our partners for their speed, commitment and flexibility. In just a few hours, they were able to design tailor-made joint solutions to carry out this huge industrial and logistical project. We would also like to thank our teams who worked hard and showed unwavering commitment during this ordeal.

Beyond our teams, a whole ecosystem has been mobilised and sometimes doubled in workforce so that customers can retrieve all the features of their services. These teams continue to support affected customers one-on-one via their Control Panel or on social media. Despite the high number of requests on these platforms, we will keep working to restore all or equivalent services.

 

OVHcloud will keep working to restore its customers’ trust and remain the trusted partner for a cloud that respects European values. 

This incident should not make anyone doubt our digital, cloud or security interests. On the contrary, it teaches us the importance of best practices at all levels. From large companies to individuals, data is a valuable asset, and its security, both physical and cyber, requires strong solutions. 

The situation in Strasbourg has shown that OVHcloud teams have managed to rally together, and will continue to do so, for the company’s customers, without counting or measuring their efforts. These events, and the conclusions of the expert reports, will serve as important information from which we will draw all the lessons that we need to learn. We are committed to sharing the findings of these expert reviews, in full accordance with our company's core values: transparency and trust.

We are already working on an action plan to maximise the resilience of our infrastructures and services. We have therefore decided to rebuild the SBG1, SBG2 and SBG4 datacentres on the basis of these new standards. The Group’s other datacentres belonging to the same generation will also be included in this plan, which will span many months. Once again, progress will be regularly reported.

Through our 32 datacentres, 400,000 servers, 2 factories, 2,450 employees, and our network of over 3,000 partners in the 140 countries where our services are available, we will do everything we can to restore this unique bond that makes OVHcloud the market leader in providing a cloud service that respects European values.

*The restoration of services is carried out according to a restart schedule room by room, aisle by aisle and rack by rack. However, server cleanup is required, and this will determine when certain racks are put back into to service. Find out more about our cleaning process via this link.
Today, the cleaning time for a rack is 7 hours, and our teams are improving this every day.
This schedule is also subject to Covid-19 and security protocols, defined for on-site interventions, with the goal of maintaining the health and ensuring the safety of our technical teams.
In addition, the current health restrictions have also affected logistics at our Strasbourg (SBG) site. We have had to source travel, accommodation and catering for all our employees who have come in to assist on site, while respecting government protocols, which of course made the operations more complex.

**As backups are hosted on Public Cloud Storage services, restarting the PCS services will result in many backups being made available.

Roubaix, France | 19 March 2021 - 22:55 (CET)

This evening at 6:50 pm, our teams on site identified smoke in an unconnected battery room at SBG1.

The fire department was immediately contacted. In regards to the situation, OVHcloud's management decided to apply the precautionary principle: the power supply of SBG1 and SBG4 was immediately cut off. Operations on site were temporarily interrupted, all OVHcloud personnel and all partner teams were asked to return home, only the security, fire safety and maintenance personnel remained on site.

Once on site, firefighters identified the source in the battery room, and the incident was contained within minutes. No injuries were reported among the OVHcloud teams or its partners. As a precautionary measure, two security personnel who were affected by the smoke were examined by medical professionals.

The situation is under control and we are adapting the operations schedule for the coming day.

    People :

    • HR teams arrived on site today to support the teams.
    • Additional industrial and technical teams arrived from other offices and datacenters to reinforce the on-site staff and provide specific expertise.
    • Logistic and food services have been provided to all on-site teams.
    • A temporary office has been established.
    • We’ve reinforced the staff on the French production site (Croix) with internal volunteers to address the current production plan and additional workload caused by the Strasbourg incident.
    • The production will be carried out in extended working hours and during the weekends.

    Production and Datacenters :

    • We’ve started to propose replacement infrastructure (Dedicated servers, Hosted Private Cloud, and Public Cloud) in Roubaix and Graveline datacenters to our customers.
    • To address the demand, additional assembly lines will be in place in the next 48 hours. This will triple our production capacity.

    On the Strasbourg site:

    • Diagnostic and inventory currently in progress.
    • We are in the process of clearing up and repairing the damaged buildings to guaranty the safe working environment for our teams.
    • We have finished removing the extinguishing foam and water from the street. We will remove the water from the water tank today.
    • SBG2 will need to be almost entirely reconstructed.
    • SBG1 was heavily damaged.
      • Following a preliminary audit, Network room SBG1 will be restored at the beginning of next week.
      • The provisional date for restoring the power supply is Monday, March 15th.
      • In the coming days, the servers will be activated room by room after the audit.
    • SBG4: preliminary audits did not reveal issues. Our ambition now is to restore power during week 12 and then gradually reactivate all services.
    • SBG3 was not impacted by the fire. We aim to restore the power and network during week 12 and then gradually reactivate all services.

    Our three priorities remain as follows:

    Reserve infrastructures at our other datacentres for our affected customers: we have a stock of new servers at the Roubaix and Gravelines sites, ready to be delivered to the majority of affected customers. We will further enhance availability in these datacentres, with the production of nearly 10,000 new servers in the coming weeks. Affected customers will be notified about this process as soon as possible.

    Secure the site now that we have regained access, clean it up, and reconnect the electricity and the network for the three affected datacentres.

    Continue to assess the impact on our customers’ servers at the affected datacentres, in order to find the best solutions and communicate to all customers
     

    Additional actions taken by OVHcloud:

    Network:

    • All fiber paths that enter the datacenter site are operational.
    • We have placed orders with different suppliers – due date for delivery on-site, March 11th.

    Communication:

    Our mission is to provide our customers with the highest quality of services to support their online activities and we know how important this is to them. We sincerely apologise for the issues caused by this fire. We will continue to communicate with the greatest transparency about the cause of the fire and its consequences.

    Summary:

    • At 00:47 on Wednesday 10 March 2021, a fire broke out in a room at one of our four OVHcloud datacentres in Strasbourg (SBG2). 
    • The fire was contained by the early hours of the morning.
    • There are no injuries.
    • The fire mostly destroyed the SBG2 datacentre and partially damaged the SBG1 datacentre (4 of the 12 rooms destroyed). The two other OVHcloud datacentres in Strasbourg were not affected by the fire; SBG3 and SBG4 servers are currently switched off but undamaged.
    • The site is not classified as a Seveso site. 
    • The cause of the fire has yet to be established and an investigation has been launched as mandated by the authorities.

    Actions taken by OVHcloud:

    Our three priorities are as follows:

    Reserve infrastructures at our other datacentres for our affected customers: we have a stock of new servers at the Roubaix and Gravelines sites, ready to be delivered to the majority of affected customers. We will further enhance availability in these datacentres, with the production of nearly 10,000 new servers in the coming weeks. Affected customers will be notified about this process as soon as possible.

    Secure the site now that we have regained access, clean it up, and reconnect the electricity and the network for the three affected datacentres.

    Continue to assess the impact on our customers’ servers at the affected datacentres, in order to find the best solutions.

    We are doing everything we can to ensure a continuity of service to our customers:

    • We are working on a plan to relaunch the three unaffected datacentres (SBG3 and SBG4), the partially affected datacentre (SBG1), as well as our network, as quickly as possible.
    • We ask that our customers exercise caution around the emails they receive: in times of crisis, it is common for malicious activity (phishing, spam, etc.) to increase. It is more important than ever to stay alert. 

    Impact on our operation:

    • We are continuing to assess the impact of this incident, particularly for the customers whose data was located in the datacentre destroyed by the fire.
    • Our Web-based VOIP services in France were not affected.
    • All of our services in our other France-based datacentres and across the world (including 15 datacentres in Europe) are fully operational.

    Our mission is to provide our customers with the highest quality of services to support their online activities and we know how important this is to them. We sincerely apologise for the issues caused by this fire. We will continue to communicate with the greatest transparency about the cause of the fire and its consequences.

    We are assessing the environmental impact by working with the relevant authorities on a procedure to confirm that no pollution was caused.

    At this stage, we can confirm that the local residents are not at any risk.

    We are continuously assessing the impact of this incident and will communicate as transparently as possible on the progress of our analyses and the solutions to be implemented.

    All of our communication channels, including our incident tracking platform, can be accessed so that you can stay informed of developments in real time.

    At 00:47 on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, a fire broke out in a room in one of our 4 datacenters in Strasbourg, SBG2. Please note that the site is not classified as a Seveso site.  Firefighters immediately intervened to protect our teams and prevent the spread of the fire.

    At 2:54 am they isolated the site and closed off its perimeter.  By 4:09 am, the fire had destroyed SBG2 and continued to present risks to the nearby datacenters until the fire brigade brought the fire under control. From 5:30 am, the site has been unavailable to our teams for obvious security reasons, under the direction of the prefecture. The fire is now contained. We are relieved that no one was injured, neither among our teams nor among the firefighters and the services of the prefecture, whom we thank for their exemplary mobilization at our side.

    With our 15 datacenters in Europe, our technical and commercial teams are fully invested to support our customers, implement solutions and mitigate the impact of the unavailability of our Strasbourg site. Our mission is to provide our customers with the highest quality of services to support their online activities and we know how important this is to them. We sincerely apologize for the difficulties and challenges caused by this fire. We are committed to continue to communicate with the greatest transparency about the cause of the fire and its consequences.

    We are currently assessing the impact of this incident and will communicate as transparently as possible on the progress of our analyses and the implementation of solutions. All of our communication channels, starting with our incident tracking platform (travaux.ovh.com), are accessible so that you can stay informed of developments in real-time.
