Background At approximately 12:40pm 8/11/2017, the primary datacentre for the University of Tasmania was automatically shut down due to a fire hazard condition caused by a fault with an uninterruptable power supply. Fire suppression systems were automatically enacted which saw gas suppression engaged and all ICT services automatically powered down. The Tasmanian Fire Service attended onsite and handed the datacentre back to the University at approximately 2:00pm, which allowed service restoration processes to commence.

The majority of services were restored by 3:20pm.
