Yeah, this is weird.  I've never seen a data center cooling system fail.  I
mean, yes, one of a pair of redundant units may fail, but overall the
system has continued working.  Not in a class A facility.  I've only heard
about it once, the data center for a national warehouse related to one of
the railroads, IIRC.  This was back in the '80s.

Of course, there have been class A power outages in the news recently, but
those seem to have been caused by someone intentionally pressing the EPO.
That happened to Live Journal twice in the last several years.
