OVH SBG2 datacenter has been destroyed by a fire.
Very sorry to hear that and wishing their team (and customers impacted) well.
For everyone else not impacted.... that's a good reminder to backup your data (often) and test your recovery plan.
@dcid best wishes for the staff and everyone involved! Disasters are serious in every aspect.
But as I read about this, I can't help but think about that other tragedy that happened with #GitLab a few years ago, that culminated in a so-called "Check Your Backups Day" https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13538168
I guess #backups are like exercise: everyone knows they have to do it, should be doing it, will do it someday, but wish they did it more only after the disaster strikes.
@dcid are lots of websites hosted there
@mayhair oh yes, lots of sites and companies impacted.
