OSgrid saves drives, but at a steep price

OSgrid's LBSA Plaza is the cross-roads of the hypergrid.

OSgrid’s files could not be recovered by a simple cloning of the damaged drives as hoped, the grid announced today.

Instead, the grid was forced to pay extra for a full recovery — $2,510 extra, to be exact, using up much of OSgrid’s current balance.

According to grid administrator Dan Banner, that makes for a very tight budget, since the grid still has ongoing hosting costs to pay.

However, “all the files are intact,” the recovery services’ engineer told the grid.

There was no word yet about when OSgrid will be coming back up.
