The company operates twenty seven data centers across 19 countries & is one of the largest cloud computing providers in the world. At Strasbourg, the company has four data centers buildings known as SBG1–4. OVH cloud Founder Octave Klaba offered updates on his Twitter feeds starting early this morning.
As ZDNet reports, it looks as though the fire started in SBG-2 & Klaba confirmed that the building has been completely destroyed, while SGB-1 is partially destroyed with four of the 12 rooms it contains impacted by the fire. Thankfully no people seem to have been harmed & both the SGB-3 and SGB-4 buildings survived but have been shut down for now.
