On behalf of Digital Realty, I wanted to write to acknowledge the wonderful services we received from the entire Foster Fuels team during Hurricane Sandy and the days preceding and immediately following the event.
In total, 15 Digital Realty sites were directly impacted in seven states, including Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina. During the event, we took delivery of over 176,000 gallons of fuel, consuming over 60% to operate solely on emergency generators for over 165 hours. In addition, you supported us in providing an additional 30,000 gallons to our customers who were not located in Digital Realty owned and operated facilities.
As a result of our strategic partnership and the collaboration of our teams, we are pleased to report that all sites impacted maintained 100% uptime throughout the duration of the event as we successfully supported over 9 megawatts of critical load. Our success is a direct result of your team’s coordination and perseverance in the face of extremely difficult and unpredictable conditions.
Thank you, again, for your outstanding performance and commitment to Digital Realty.
