Twitter Data Center Outage Restored After 15 Minutes

Twitter’s data center knocked out by extreme heat in California

Twitter is the victim of a data center failure in California.

Data Center World has been tracking the power outages and heat waves that have hit the state since yesterday, when an electrical failure in the data center for Netflix and other services knocked out power to the facility in San Jose.

Most of the power was restored this afternoon, and the outage lasted less than 15 minutes, according to Netflix. However, engineers are monitoring a second data center in Monterey, which is scheduled to receive power through Friday, and “will be fully operational then.”

The outage has been particularly severe in Southern California, where the Monterey facility is located, and across the Bay area, where San Jose is located.

Twitter has not reported the extent of the outage, but some users have tweeted photos from inside the facility. The last image Twitter posted from inside its data center was on Aug. 8.

“Sorry to get nasty again, but the Twitter data center knocked out by an earthquake yesterday in Southern California has just been restored.”
