Recently, British Airways faced catastrophic power failure, causing physical damage to servers in the data centre. You may remember when the event took place back in May, as holiday-goers faced long delays. In The Guardian’s article discussing the incident, the airline comments,
“There was a loss of power to the UK data centre which was compounded by the uncontrolled return of power, causing a power surge taking out our IT systems.”
The airline went on to say it was “an electrical power supply which was interrupted.”
Consequently, due to this power failure and unreliable electricity source, experts predict BA are facing a bill of up to £100m in compensation costs. This includes accommodation, hotel transportation, meals and phone calls.
The costs of down time through lost revenues and lost customers is unmeasurable. You will never know the consequences of an unreliable electricity source, until it happens to you.
