Why Decontaminate

Three facts dictate why data centres must operate an effective and ongoing decontamination strategy. Firstly, airborne contamination is an inevitable part of our environment, generated by sources as diverse as nearby industrial plant, passing traffic and equipment within the data centre itself. Secondly, this contamination can harm electronic equipment in many ways, causing loss of performance, wasted energy and even catastrophic failure. And finally, equipment susceptibility to contamination is actually increasing as it becomes ever more densely packed.
