"...And this is one of the reasons why no one should have access to your stuff without, at the very least, you being notified beforehand. (If your housing provider goes bust, you might be out of luck though.)..."
Indeed. 13 or so years ago, I was leading a server room migration. The company had moved out of an expensive rented office, with a rented space in the server room to a edge-of-city, less expensive premises and rented a cage in a nearby hosted data centre.
We'd basically done the physical move and we were getting on with the second part - a systems upgrade and refresh.
I was sat in a status meeting with their programme manager when someone popped their head round the door to say "all the IT is down."
A quick check and something was indeed wrong at the server end.
So off I toddled to the DC to investigate. I walked into the cage to find the DC contactractors installed a cable tray above the customers racks. Thoughtfully, to stop dust and debris, they'd covered the racks in blankets from top to bottom...yup...no airflow. Overheat and shutdown.
Yep there'd been alerts, but alas the persons that would see them, were in the status meeting sans mobiles as the programme manager didn't like folks having them in his meetings (that rule changed pretty quickly as you can imagine).
I was less than impressed with the DC hosting staff - no warning, no request for permission to enter the cage, nothing. Not the electricans' faults - they were handed a job card and were following it.
