Data Centers

Data centers serve as specialized environments to accommodate computer systems, infrastructure, and related elements like IT, storage, and telecommunications systems. As global communication and networking methods advance, data centers must continually align with these demands. This entails not just enhancing performance, but also sustaining energy efficiency.

Given the paramount importance of data security, data centers must provide a secure, uncontaminated setting to uphold rigorous benchmarks and minimize potential downtimes. Dycem provides established contamination control and anti-static solutions for data centers.

Contamination: The Risk to Data Centers

One of IBM’s key concerns is maintaining contamination control in data centers. Just a single hour of downtime can result in staggering financial losses, averaging around $300,000. Common types of contamination found in data centers include dust, debris, fibers, skin cells, static, Zinc Whiskers, and other particulate matter. These contaminants not only carry immediate financial repercussions but also disrupt daily operations, jeopardize data security, and even pose a fire hazard.

Controlled environments play a vital role in monitoring and minimizing contamination levels stemming from personnel, equipment, and environmental factors. This vigilance is crucial for upholding data center safety and efficiency.

Neglecting effective contamination control carries significant risks to a company’s brand, profitability, and personnel. Therefore, maintaining robust contamination control measures is imperative to mitigate downtime risks.

Dycem access tiles and floating mats, integrated as integral components of a contamination control strategy, provide invaluable support to data centers in reducing the risk of particulate, airborne, and static contamination.

Benefits of Dycem in Data Centers

Data Centers

superior particle collection & retention

Dirt and dust from shoes and wheels are captured on Dycem mats and remain on the surface until cleaned off. Dycem mats also help to reduce airborne contamination by up to 75%, helping to minimize the build-up of dust and other particulates in data centers.

Data Centers

Reduced concerns of esd damage

With Dycem mats installed prior to, or inside critical areas, our data center customers have peace of mind that damage from an Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) occurrence will be minimized. All Dycem mats dissipate static at 10⁸ ohms.

Data Centers

Easy removal & Acess

Dycem’s access tiles are specifically designed for facilities where access to underneath the floor is required. Our inlaid tiles easily replace your existing tiles and can be moved when needed but they come with added benefit of contamination control.

Why Air Contaminants Should Be Given Attention

Read this article segment from AKCP, the worlds oldest and largest manufacturer of SNMP enabled sensors:

“Today, data centers are one of the most important parts of a company. They run non-stop so people can access their wealth of information. Exposure to contaminants, however, are threatening data centers. These threats create numerous drawbacks.

The most affected part of a company would be its bottom line. Data center equipment and technologies are sophisticated and expensive, that’s why they require intensive maintenance. The presence of a contaminant could shorten what could have been years of an equipment’s lifespan. Not only the computers and servers are at stake, but also maintenance and monitoring technologies. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC), temperature sensors, and cleaning devices can also break down due to contaminants’ corrosive properties. The need for constant replacement of expensive materials is not financially healthy and only incurs added expenses.

Broken servers could lead to downtime and data loss. Particle emissions can cause static charges that interfere with servers. Both downtime and loss of data could be compelling reasons for a client to lose trust over a data center company. Frequent inaccessibility to information, and increasing competition among data center companies, makes switching data providers an easy choice. Again, this could be a big blow to the company’s bottom line.”
