Warning of Possible Downtime

Please note I don't expect any downtime but want to make you all aware of the possibility of downtime in advance.

Our hosting provider Peer1 is experiencing a critical situation with their San Antonio datacenter. Half of their computer room air conditioning units (CRAC) are non-functional due to a water main break. Last year Texas had issues with rolling blackouts across the state and while it didn't interrupt service I was worried Peer1's backup generators wouldn't outlast the blackouts.

If temperatures at the San Antonio datacenter threaten to damage equipment Peer1 will have to proactively shut down servers. At this point I'm seriously considering moving to a datacenter in either Toronto, Chicago, or Los Angeles (where I live). Toronto and Chicago seem most likely since they aren't known for their natural disasters.

Again, depending on how Peer1 handles the situation we may not have to move any time soon.

UPDATE: Peer1 has resolved this issue. So no more worries! :)

My personal choice is Toronto, because as you said, it is not known for it's natural disasters (then again..blizzards :S)

As a local in Texas i can tell you that the heat is bad its worse in San Antonio, we have had random black outs. I am letting you know right now Danilo that they are predicting record breaking heat for Texas so the servers may go down if that happens if it does happen all i can say is i can't wait for winter because our summers are ridiculous.
