White paper: Physical security in IT and data centre technology

Download this white paper from Rittal to learn about:

Data centres represent a key technology in an increasingly digitised world. They
house the servers and storage systems with their associated network components so
that applications are present with the agreed availability and the required
performance. Equally important is the physical infrastructure that provides the power
and cooling for these components, as well as permitting the monitoring of all the
operating parameters.

Increasing importance is being given to all aspects of security. This starts with wellknown anti-virus protection and firewall systems, although protection against physical
threats also calls for increasing attention. Besides defence against such very real
threats as burglary and theft, it also involves avoiding unwanted eavesdropping via
the EMC irradiation from IT equipment, as well as the “traditional” potential dangers
of fire, smoke, water and dust, to only name but a few.

This white paper explores each of these threat scenarios and reveals the measures
that can be used to counter physical hazards.
