OVH is yet to bring all customers affected by its Strasbourg data center fire back online – and the French cloud operator's CFO has described ongoing restoration efforts as a "real nightmare."

The new update said cleaning each rack prior to reinstallation in a new data center takes seven hours, and that OVH staff are getting faster every day.

Having no working emergency plan and no working fire prevention was the real nightmare.
