Many days ago, I received an email from Hotsales, since I have a personal home page space with Hotsales, who hosted their servers in China Telecom data center.
The official order came from the above about the “sealing (or blocking) of all data centers”. The order reads like this:
According to regulations related to national Olympic logistics, the following “Network Blockage” will be implemented.
China telecome: August 1, 2008 to August 25, 2008
China Unicom: July 20, 2008 to August 25, 2008
China mobile: July 20, 2008 to August 25, 2008
1. Customer staff are not allowed to enter data center.
2. No equipments can be added or removed.
3. If during the “network blockage”, your website is hacked, or changed to anti-government content or has other security problems, the data center will cut off the network connection immediately, and inform the related people. Please cooperate with our further investigation. All servers shutdown must wait until the blockage period is over. During the period, it will not be resumed.
Many IDC (data center) has required their client to close BBS, or anything people can post information, and ask for indemnity if their client fail to do it.
My Two Cents
OK. I feel that Olympic is really coming! Welcome! I am super excited.
