While heating and cooling concerns top the list of environmental controls, data center managers must also be prepared for more serious situations, such as fire, flooding, and electromagnetic interference. In this video, learn the importance of environmental controls for data centers and other physical computing environments. These include using heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to monitor and manage temperature and humidity as well as the use of a hot aisle/cold aisle approach.
- [Instructor] While heating and cooling concerns…top the list of environmental controls,…data center managers must also be prepared…for more serious situations…such as fire, flooding, and electromagnetic interference.…Let's take a look at the controls used…to protect against those risks.…Fire is dangerous in any environment…and can be particularly damaging…in a facility filled with electrical equipment.…For this reason, data center managers must design…fire suppression systems that will extinguish a fire…before it grows out of control.…
Let's talk briefly about how fires start.…In order for a fire to burn…it requires three key ingredients,…heat, fuel, and oxygen.…If you can deprive a fire of any one of these three elements…it will go out.…The most common approach to fighting fires…is the use of water which deprives the fire of heat.…But water is not effective against all types of fires,…and it can damage electronic equipment.…Fire extinguishers used to fight fires…come rated for different classes of fire.…
Class A fire extinguishers are for typical fires…
