Checklist to identify potential leak risks: make sure a small water leak doesn't turn into a major flood in your data centre

Instructions designed to help data centre professionals identify and contain areas susceptible to leaks

(PresseBox) (London, ) There are a lot of good reasons why data centre experts need to deal with the issue of leaks: the fact is, leaks have always been one of the primary causes of unscheduled downtime in data centres along with human error, interrupted power supply and hardware disruptions.

If liquids get into the sensitive areas of a data centre, there could be system disruptions, equipment and facility failures or, in the worst case scenario, serious technical and structural damage to the entire data centre infrastructure that could bring operations and all IT services to a standstill.

For the data centre manager the question is not if, but when there will be a leak in the data centre.

And because it’s anyone’s guess as to when and how this could happen, taking precautions at an early stage by adopting a water and chemical detection leak system is an important mission critical decision. According to Daxten, a provider of smart solutions for optimising data centres, a very good first step is to identify where leaks could potentially occur and what damage they could cause in your data centre by walking around and conducting a visual inspection.
