Verisys Update – Salt Lake City Earthquake on 3-18-20
Dear Verisys Customers and Partners,
Thank you for your continued partnership and communication in this challenging time. Today at 7:09 a.m. MDT, the Salt Lake City area experienced a 5.7 magnitude earthquake, followed by a 4.4 magnitude earthquake at 8:02 a.m. MDT.
Fortunately, the impact on our headquarters and staff in the area has been minimal. We have contacted staff - most of whom are now working remotely - and have determined that beyond minor damage, some power outages, and a few small injuries, everyone is safe and secure. All the buildings in our office park are built to earthquake standards and are able to withstand significant quakes. There is no reported damage at our headquarters location and our office is currently open and operating as normal.
Our production systems were not impacted by this event as they are housed and managed within a secure data center in Las Vegas and in the cloud, utilizing Amazon Web Services. We also have team members in other states supporting production and delivery services to ensure any individuals impacted in Salt Lake City are supported in managing damage and impact with their families, while maintaining service levels for customers.
Verisys continues to deliver all products and services without interruption at this time, and we do not anticipate that this event will create any significant service disruptions. We continue to closely monitor business activities and will proactively notify you of any possible impacts to scheduled deliverables or committed turnaround times. Our Business Continuity Committee is actively engaged in ensuring that all appropriate measures are in place to avoid disruptions to our valued clients and partners.
Thank you again for your continued support! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact James Voss, VP of Customer Success at firstname.lastname@example.org, your account manager, or any other Verisys leader.
The Verisys Team
