OVH cloud datacenter destroyed by fire
A fire in one of the OVH datacenters has destroyed one datacenter and knocked two others offline. It took 100 firefighters and 43 fire trucks to fight the fire in the five-story building. Even though the fire department was quick to respond, and the fire was brought under control relatively quickly, the impact has been big.
