Data centres and server rooms are continuously improving their efficiencies to store and process more data. Improvements in computing hardware have led to an increase in Hard Disk Data (HDD) sensitivity to sound. Inert gas fire suppression systems, normally used to protect this type of equipment, can produce sound levels that may have adverse effects on noise sensitive equipment.
Tyco have carried our significant research into the impact of noise on HDDs and summarised best practices to help reduce the sound exposure to HDDs.
Sound Engineering by Tyco
Tyco performed extensive research and modelling of inert gas agent flow to develop a novel inert gas suppression nozzle with a low sound power.
