The Olympics


News, information and stories about the Olympic Games.

Monday, 26 July 2004


Following on from the recent power cut in Athens, there have been questions raised about the reliability of the IT, power and communication systems being used during the Olympics 2004.

It is reported that all possible threats, from earthquakes to hacking have been taken into account; and that the systems won't go down, they are in effect unsinkable.

There will be 10500 pcs, 4000 terminals and 900 servers employed to cover the Olympic Games. These are powered by two power lines, and employ power supply units that will keep them going for 30 minutes in the event that the main grid goes down.

What could possibly go wrong?

Didn't they say that about the Titanic?
