Todays data centers and network rooms are under enormous pressure to maintain operations
Todays data centers and network rooms are under enormous pressure to maintain operations. Some companies risk losing millions of dollars with one single data center glitch. Therefore its not hard to believe that in the event of a catastrophic data center fire; a company may not only loose millions but may also go out of business. According to the National fire Protection Association (NFPA), there were 125,000 non-residential fires in 2001 with a total of 3.231 billion dollars in losses. Its no wonder why when designing data centers, fire prevention, detection and suppression are always top concerns. Like any other critical system in a data center, fire protection must be redundant and fault tolerant in order to increase the overall data center availability. Today there are many ways of detecting and suppressing fires, but only a few are recommended for data center applications. In a data center, the main goal of the fire protection system is to get the fire under control without disrupting the flow of business and without threatening the personal inside. At PA Vision, we can offer a complete gas-based human, environment and equipment friendly fire suppression system and Very early smoke detection system to minimize downtime and reduce losses due to fire hazard.
