Yesterday early in the morning, when I check mail, I receive a mail from the Communication Dept. The title is “Planned Outage Activities at Myloca” The content shows that TMnet has to do some maintenance on Cyberjaya’s Data Center (DC). This is how the email looks like:

Dear Customer,

We would like to inform you that TMNet has scheduled repair and audit activities in the Cyberjaya1 Data Center (formerly known as MyLoca) that involved the whole Data Center . It is part of an ongoing effort to ensure the integrity and reliability of the electrical power system of the Data Center at all times.

The maintenance will begin at 0700AM Malaysian Time on Saturday , 14thApril , 2007 . The work is expected to conclude within 24 hours, at approximately 07.00AM Malaysian Time, Sunday, 15 th April , 2007 .

During this time, all servers located at Cyberjaya1 Data Cente will have to be shutdown. As a result, you will be unable to access all websites and emails hosted at Cyberjaya1 Data Center for the duration of the exercise.

If you should have any inquiries regarding this, please do not hesitate to us.

Warmest regards,
Webhost and Email Provider – Your Right Hosting Partner

It sounds serious for those businesses which are doing e-commerce. after that I straight away receive another mail from another branch, the Manager has asked the web developer to put in a pop-up message in our website

” TMNET’s repair & audit activities – Shut down on Apr 14, 2007 (Saturday) from 0700hrs to Apr 15, 2007 till 0700hrs.

Our sincere regret that the access to our website and email services will not be available during this period”

I have no idea whether is it will affect a lot of websites that hosted in Malaysia, so I just posted this topic in the forum (WebmasterMalaysia.com) and see how they respond. The administrator of that forum – limcs stated that most of the web host have their server there. that means it will affect most of us who hosted our website in Malaysia.

I also do some research on the “Myloca”,¬† Myloca is Telekom Malaysia’s total hosting and business continuity solutions center. It offers IDC, Telehousing, and Business Continuity. I found some information about Myloca at www.myloca.com

Hopefully after the maintenance will have better service for us!
