Just recently Zoho’s online services were knocked offline by a power failure in it’s data centre. Zoho resolved the issue and a couple of hours after the failure tweeted that its service was back up and technicians were working to restore the company’s applications. It is yet unclear exactly how many of the company’s customers were affected by the power failure.
