Preventing Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Damage from a Gas Extinguishing Discharge – Protecting Your Data Centre

This CPD approved presentation describes how certain sound pressures and frequencies can cause vibration and damage to Hard Disk Drives (HDD). The sound pressure and frequency from a gas extinguishing discharge falls within this range that is known to cause damage to HDD’s.  Research has been carried out into this phenomenon and manufacturers have come up with different solutions to the problem.

The various studies and different solutions are presented along with other measures that can be taken to mitigate noise damage in a datacentre.  Methods of calculating predicted noise levels and practical solutions for new and existing installations are discussed.

We can deliver this CPD approved presentation at your offices or ours.
