Yes that is an exception... not what happened in this case....

You can come up with a lot of valid exceptions...

There are many reasons why a Tier 1 provider does not stick all its eggs in multi-tenant buildings... smart things can be done with site selection. I am not saying ever customer needs to keep their network like this... but the really bug guys at the core of their network yes.

Unless there is some sort of crazy story related to why a service provider
could not keep the lights on, this should have not been an issue with
proper operations and engineering.
The building where one of our nodes sites got hit with an electrical fire in
the basement one day, the fire department shut off all electrical to the
whole building including the big diesel generators sitting outside the back
of the building so all we had was battery power until that ran out 6 hours

How do you prepare for that?
