I-75 Fire

Harbor Computer Services was affected by the fire on I-75 last night. Our servers and other network equipment still reside in Hazel Park. After the bridge collapsed last night, I got a call from our monitoring service letting me know that the server was unreachable.

Sure enough. Power is out. Internet is out. And that plume of smoke was right over the top of us. Due to the uncertainty at that time, we pulled our equipment out and are in process of moving it to a new location. Our disaster plan is in action and we continue to function.

Since we operate in a highly distributed way utilizing Internet services as a backup for email delivery and accounting we shouldn’t experience any delays in service.
