ICT systems ProRail prove not withstand power failure




The great train failure Monday, leaving thousands of travelers stranded, was partly caused by a backup system that failed after a power failure. Reported rail manager ProRail. There was “too much data passed back and forth.”

NS train The issues surrounding Utrecht station were initially caused by a power failure of twenty minutes, but worsened because the backup system was not working properly. According to Wim Knopperts that the ict of rail manager ProRail has under his care, the system worked “too slow”. That says it faces NRC Q.

According Knopperts ProRail has a state of the art -backupsysteem ‘housed in a professional data center that is not hosted on the location of the traffic. “But the system is apparently not well calculated the enormous amount of data being sent back and forth in such a situation. They are going to write data, inform, that was too much,” said Knopperts across NRC.

It is unclear whether it involves a limited data capacity, or as the storage servers ProRail was filling and no I / O operations could be carried out more. A spokesman for ProRail could offer no clarity about that. “That’s part of the investigation.”

The failure reason no train near Utrecht. “Utrecht is so important, if there is something in the soup, it is wrong everywhere,” said a spokesman for ProRail. Less than two weeks ago, ProRail already struggling with an ICT failure in Utrecht, making the trains ran into the hundreds. When it came to a network failure.
