Submission + - NYC Datacenters Should Get Power Saturday (

Nerval's Lobster writes: "The local utility serving most of the New York City area, Con Edison, reported that it should begin supplying utility power to midtown and lower Manhattan by Saturday evening, returning the island’s data centers and citizens to some semblance of normalcy.

In the past few days, data center managers have been forced to add fuel logistics to their list of responsibilities, as most Manhattan data centers have been subsisting on generator power. That should come to an end, for the most part, when utility power is restored. In a possibly worrying note, Verizon warned late on Nov. 1 that its services to business customers could be impacted due to lack of fuel.
Below is the Nov. 2 update from many of the data-center providers and some of the communications providers in the area, some of which remain unchanged from previous days."
