Backup everything .....except the HVAC system....ya, what a joke!
There’s no doubt about it, humidity control from both the de-humidification and the humidification standpoint, is much harder to measure, control, provide P/M, and work on, in relationship to it’s sister component, temperature. All server and date rooms need some sort of humidity control (both up and down) for the equipment in the room to be totally protected.
It’s hilarious how much redundancy the end-users, architects, and mechanical engineers build into server and data rooms in the form of fire suppression systems, emergency generator systems, backup server and data systems, emergency lighting systems, and their countless “Emergency Operating Manuals” while at the same time having almost no budget for any temperature or humidity control of their precious rooms………what a joke!
Sorry….just venting………I’m back……happy face and all!
