Sample chapter from Structural and Vibration Guidelines for Datacom Equipment Centers

Data centers in close proximity to trains, construction sites and airports may be in danger of equipment degradation over time due to shock and vibration. Additionally, severe weather, earthquakes and the internal equipment that transmit vibration to their surroundings are just as likely to harm data center equipment. The guidelines in this book offer considerations for data center managers regarding the performance of their physical infrastructure, such as power and cooling, servers, storage and other equipment.

Download a sample chapter from Structural and Vibration Guidelines for Datacom Equipment Centers, which introduces the problem and provides an overview of how the book is structured and how to use it. The full table of contents is also available.

For more information on protecting your data center from shock and vibration, read our interview with author and ASHRAE TC 9.9 chairman Roger Schmidt. In the interview, he discusses how the book is intended to be used, as well as how to limit vibration in data center design
