Evaluating Risk Level Crucial for Data Center Protection


Modern technology, capacity, and increasing data demands are just a few of the reasons data center fire protection is complex. According to Jeffrey Tubbs, PE, FSFPE (Arup Principal and Boston Fire Group Leader), Garr Di Salvo, PE, LEED AP (Arup Americas critical facilities construction and operations designer and Arup Associate Principal), and Andrew Neviackas, PE (Arup Senior Fire Protection Engineer and code consultant), the overall fire protection strategy stems from the tolerable level of risk. These consultants stress the importance of developing a comprehensive fire protection program for data centers that is appropriate to the stakeholder risk tolerance and required level of business continuity.
