Web Performance: MySpace Offline

I came in this morning to read on Netcraft that MySpace had been knocked offline by a power outage at their datacenter. [here]

The question is now one of how did this happen. There should have been contingency planning in the extreme for this type of event, especially for operations in the Western US. Backup generators, UPS, etc. should have been in place.

It would be very interesting to sit in on a post-mortem of this event.
