Data Centre Protection
We provide surge & lightning protection for many markets from Buildings & Construction, M.O.D, Rail & Trams, Telecoms and the I.T sector of course. Our products have saved many companies from the loss of valuable downtime, expensive equipment and their brand reputations.
With so many of us using PCs, whether at home or in the workplace, saving so much information on social media and private storage clouds, the data centres dependence is increasing. Trying to provide a reliable service is now vital to ensuring businesses and homes run smoothly.
Data centres unplanned outage, results in upset customers, broken equipment, damage to the company reputation and revenue loss. A recent study showed that every minute of downtime is a loss of over £4000, so approximately £250,000 is lost per hour.
In 2009 some customers of Amazon’s EC2 cloud computing service were offline for more than four hours after a lightning storm caused damage to a single Power Distribution Unit (PDU).
Though in 2011 a lightning strike hit Fibernet’s data centre in Utah but the company’s contingency measures successfully protected its data and any subsequent downtime.

Does the building have lightning protection and surge protection measures in place to protect the building and critical IT equipment from electricity spikes caused by lightning?
