Power outages prompt move of National Park Service datacenter

Wednesday - 9/16/2009, 12:00pm EDT

Several "unexpected power interruptions" in Washington have sparked a datacenter move to a new server in Denver. In an announcement, the Office of the Chief Information Officer says to expect all data entry to InsideNPS to be shutdown, "probably for no more than a week."

The National Park Service's main web site, NPS.gov, will not be affected, according to the announcement.

No reason was given in the announcement for the power interruptions.
