Sprinkler system in server room
Just wanted to check I am not missing some important advancement / discovery in science where water no longer conducts electricity
Moving to a new build soon and they want to install a water sprinkler system in the server room. Not sure who thought this one up, local authority or builders.
I can understand the need for a fire suppression system but water….
With redundant hot swappable parts on server / switches etc, power supplies all sorts, I don’t want to be the one standing at the back of a server rack, hands in servers when the sprinkler system goes off by design or accident.
Think my risk assessment will be to turn off everything including the UPS if I need to touch a piece of equipment in the server room.
Kind of makes the redundant features of equipment redundant..
Any got any thoughts or is it just me!
