Extreme rainfall events and rising sea levels are threatening hundreds of data centers around the world.
Jason Hood, former Global Infrastructure Segment Manager at Roxtec, shares his best tips in a paper on protection of critical communication infrastructure against water ingress and flooding.
In the paper “Water Mitigation in Data Centers. Preparing for Natural Disasters and Climate Change” Jason Hood explains how you can harden your data centers by taking three hardening measures and thereby maintain safe operations and business continuity. Read it today – and learn how to reduce the risk of costly downtime. Did you know that the average data center outage costs 740,357 USD?
Ensure the right location from the start. Place your data center in a low risk area with minimum risk of high water table or long-term effects of humidity.
Use efficient seals
Water issues affecting operations may also occur under moderate rainfall events. Use best practice when sealing all openings for cables and pipes.
Avoid costly outages
Secure your entire facility. It is crucial to protect all your equipment, including generators and switchgear, from the risk of humidity and partial discharge.
