Data centre operators’ number-one priority is to ensure maximum continuous availability of data and computing capacity—24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Modern work, business and communications are all dependent on digitally stored information and data. If this data is not available, business processes immediately come to a standstill, which not only greatly damages a company’s image, but also causes major financial losses that can weaken a business permanently. So it is essential to both data centres and their customers that servers be available at all times. Reliable fire protection can help data centres uphold this standard.
