Data Center Grounding and Lightning Protection

When an outage at a data center occurs, it can cost your company more than just money. Data centers are the epicenter for all the important information your business keeps in the cloud, as well as on a server. Data center grounding and lightning protection are so critical and necessary for protecting multiple aspects of your company. So, what areas of your business need lightning protection?

Power Supply Lines

It’s no surprise that data centers need a consistent supply of power to work properly. In the event of a lightning strike, the right lightning protection products can safeguard your power supply lines from being affected or harmed in a storm. This, in turn, protects the entire data center from being damaged and saves your company from suffering downtime.

Data Processing and Storage

The actual processing and storing of data is arguably the most important part of data center and communication system lightning protection. If your data is stored on hard disks, an outage could cause your company to lose crucial data permanently. With proper lightning protection and grounding engineering solutions, you can prevent this damage before it happens and ensure that no data is lost.
