What comes to mind when you are questioned regarding safety in the data center? Protection from hackers? Fire suppression, or guidelines for energized work? The typical safety plan is incomplete without physical safety and transportation/positioning/installation guidelines. Let us help you in creating safety initiatives that protect both staff and expensive machinery.
Data center managers and operators know the looming threat of unnecessary downtime well. Despite technological advances in the IT infrastructure space, they are a common phenomenon. The Ponemon Institute placed the cost of a minute of downtime in the data center at $5,600 in 2010 and at $7,900 in 2013. That has now risen to an average of over $8,000 per minute. For the Fortune 100, the loss of unplanned downtime costs as much as $2.5 billion annually.
