Fire protection of data centres

Avoid damage in the event of a fire, with an Inergen system

Overheated servers or a short circuit in a power supply are often the primary cause of fire in a data centre. This results in downtime, loss of valuable data and can have grave consequences for the companies that have their data hosted – and for those responsible for the security of the data centre. Competition today among data centres is fierce, and downtime is any data centre’s worst nightmare. Today, when most businesses rely on being online all the time, downtime has major consequences. Employees are unable to perform their work, customers cannot receive any service. It rapidly takes its toll on reputation and revenue if the servers and the company’s data are not reconnected quickly. The risk of fire can be minimized. By choosing a fire extinguishing system with Inergen®, you will avoid many sleepless nights.
