Safeguarding computer data centers is essential in today’s business environment. Threats from external and even internal sources are growing. With more and more personal, financial and business data stored in remote, cloud-based data centers, physical security for banks of servers and data storage equipment is a top priority. Both corporate campuses and cloud storage data centers are always under risk of physical access by unauthorized personnel seeking to sabotage equipment or illegally gain access to sensitive data. Increasingly, data center managers are turning to secure enclosures, even within spaces containing computers and data storage equipment. One of the most secure, affordable ways to provide this security is through construction of chain link enclosures with access gates controlled by digital locking systems. Floor to ceiling tubular framework and commercial or industrial-grade chain link fabric offers excellent deterrence at remarkably affordable cost.
Effective Partitioning of Interior Space
It is becoming more common that a data center rents its servers to a number of companies. As a result, a large server room may need to be divided into segments that have various access control needs. Building chain link partitions is the most economical solution to creating separate spaces. Such partitions allow the data center to manage and control large banks of servers more easily and grant special access to individuals or companies.
Additional Security for Servers and Data Storage
Even within secure rooms in buildings, additional security for the actual data processing equipment adds one more level of data safety. Banks of servers, network wiring, and data storage hardware requires constant protection from unauthorized intrusion. An interior chain link mesh enclosure, equipped with securely locked gates and doors of the same material ensures that only authorized personnel can access the cabling networks, server racks and other equipment inside. Sabotage, unauthorized installation of hacking devices and other risks can be managed easily. Digital locks, with state-of-the-art biometric identification technology, add to intrusion prevention. Chain link fabric and framework offer outstanding entry deterrence and intrusion delay time.
Highly Cost-Effective Security Measures
When compared to other interior security enclosure systems, chain link materials can lower the total cost of installation and maintenance. Tubular framework can be attached to existing floors and ceilings quickly and securely. Chain link fabric, in commercial and industrial grades, installs quickly and efficiently. Pre-fabricated gates and doorways, along with locking systems, take little time to install. Best of all, chain link materials are much lower in cost than engineered metal enclosure materials. Tests have demonstrated that entry deterrence for chain link partitions is equal to or superior to systems.
Maximum Air Flow to Simplify Cooling
Data center equipment generates a great deal of heat during operation. Temperature and humidity controls are essential to prevent costly heat-related malfunctions. Chain link security enclosures do not restrict the air flow. Even when they are added to an existing facility, no costly additional ductwork or cooling system redesign is needed in most cases. This provides additional cost savings when upgrading security to data centers using interior enclosures. No other security enclosure material offers better air flow.
Enhanced Security Monitoring
Maintaining security monitoring for data centers, which may be unstaffed much of the time, is a daunting challenge. Centralized security monitoring is often used, with remotely controlled or automatic scanning video cameras keeping watch over sensitive hardware. The unmatched visibility through chain link fabric greatly simplifies this type of monitoring. Other types of security enclosures may require the installation of several additional cameras. An entire data center protected by open chain link fabric can be surveilled by a minimal number of video cameras. This reduces cost and simplifies monitoring by reducing the number of views needed for complete coverage. In addition, security patrols can view the entire data center without obstruction. Over time, the reduced cost for adequate surveillance is significant when this material is installed.
