Preventing particle and gas contamination in the data center
Contamination from dust and dirt can cause IT equipment failure and lead to costly data center outages. Preventing particle and gas contamination is an important aspect of maintaining uptime in critical facilities, and as IT equipment becomes smaller, with less space in between components, this risk becomes magnified. Particulate and Gaseous Contamination in Datacom Environments
, a new book from American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), tackles this often overlooked hazard to data center environments. Learn about the hazards this type of contamination in your data center facility, from identifiying suseptibilities to prevention strategies and contamination testing.
In additon, ASHRAE and SearchDataCenter.com have provided a free download of Chapter 1 of Particulate and Gaseous Contamination in Datacom Environments.
