Due to a power outage in the Taunton area, County Hall has lost all power. There is no advice as to when power will be restored, so SWO have taken the decision to safely power down servers in an orderly fashion to avoid any potential data corruption.
For schools this will mean a loss of SLP, and ‘educ’ emails (unless you have already been moved into Office 365).
There may also be some disruption to WAN services, and SWO hosted services such as Somercloud.
We have been advised that IT is unlikely to be restored until 6pm at the earliest.
Many apologies for this disruption which is unfortunately outside of our control.
