Affects: Global Switch Amsterdam - at risk

We have received a notification of a maintenance by the Datacenter Global Switch Amsterdam (GSA) as they will be doing their "Annual Black Building test 2019".

The notification we received included the following:

The main purpose of this BBT is to test all full automatic functionality of all the emergency backup power systems, electrical distribution, and mechanical cooling systems.

- Before the works start all the technical installations will be checked. When there is a slight possibility for a failure or a deviant value (technically) the works won't start or will be aborted.
- The change level is assessed by GS OPS as a level 2 (Medium) as the supply by the main grid is shut down.

Their reference is: Change Control Form CCF2019-137

This is only an at risk notification, no outages are expected.
