NAB mainframe turns its TOESUP* after power outage, offline 7 hours

What aren’t they saying?

I’m pretty sure there’s more to the story. Mainframe going down is a pretty rare occurrence, even today. A data center without redundant power? Where? That’s extremely rare—even in locations where the equipment is being housed internally.

Just seems fishy to me.

A month ago Canadian Stock Exchange went down. Screwed trading badly. They’re still trying to recover. It was a big deal. Only one to report it was CNBC. The outage was due to a “storage failure”. Rumor has it that the storage was Pure. Not a single word about this from the Register.

My point is, more info. Cover it in depth not just high level overviews.
