Water Events and Data Centers - How Common?

A recent Liebert study revealed that nearly 20% of data center facilities HAVE EXPERIENCED a "water event" in the last 12 months.  The risk to your data, equipment, inventory, building infrastructure, and people CAN'T be ignored.  

Additionally, a recent gathering of IFMA facilities managers pegged the average cost of downtime for a typical facility as high as $90,000/hour.  

Unacceptable Odds

According to the Liebert study and the IFMA meeting mentioned above, there is a 20% chance that this year there will be a leak in your facility costing on average $90,000/hour.  Most enterprises would consider those odds to be unacceptable. What can be done to mitigate the risk of water intrusion and beat the odds? Primarily, all potential water sources need to be identified. Thus we are offering the Leak Risk Mitigation Checklist. This easy to use checklist will help you evaluate your facility for potential leak threats, even those that you may not have considered in the past.  

Use the checklist to:

  • Ensure that you've considered all the most common and commonly overlooked threats
  • Take a step back and look at your facility as a whole
  • Review tips for optimizing your fluid leak protection
  • Plan out a system that meets the unique needs of your business, your building, and your budget

Take it for a 'dry run' on your facility today.

P.S. The best way to protect your facility from fluid leak damage is to have the right tools in place to notify you early that there is a threat. We can help with that! Contact us at 800-526-1095 or email us at sales@paragonint.net
