Data Centers and Telecommunications
Life Safety • Asset Protection • Business Continuity
Digital transformation means a higher reliance on data centers for nearly all aspects of our connected lives.
Fires in data centers can and do occur, with even the smallest fire resulting in significant consequences. The high value and sensitivity of the electronic equipment found in data centers, combined with the consequences of system interruption, make fire protection a crucial component of any data center risk assessment.
Fire protection for modern day data centers can be quite complex. The overall protection program must extend beyond minimal code compliance, taking into account physical, environmental attributes, operational factors and change of use over time. This can be challenging considering the speed in which innovations occur, outpacing codes & standards.
- Speed at which innovations occur
- How often code cycles occur
- Environmental challenges

- Insurer requirements
Is there a gap?
