1st May 2023: Axis India assists industrial clients in following the right and standard parameters in designing an earthing system while building a new data center.
Axis India is an ISO 9001:2015 certified electrical component manufacturing company offering the best-in-class earthing systems for data center functioning. It also explains the need for Earthing and Lightning Protection in Data Centers.

Why is there a need for a lightning protection system?

The need for reliable and secure data centers has never been more significant as the world becomes more reliant on technology. However, these critical facilities can only be vulnerable to a wide range of hazards with proper earthing and lightning protection. There is a concurrent steep growth of Data Centres around the world. These Data Centres have loads of servers and racks sensitive to heat and electrical fluctuations. That holds mission-critical information for thousands of businesses across the globe.

Hence, the Earthing, Lightning Protection System, Surge Protection, and Equipotential Bonding for data centers are crucial to ensure uninterrupted functioning.

Here is what the specialists recommend to weigh upon.

Using the concept of Lightning Protection Zones (LPZ) and International Standard References for Data Centre, we ensure high levels of speed, uptime and data handling capacity are intertwined at Data Centers through:

• Detailed Power Supply system with redundant generators to ensure that servers are always powered.
• AC and Cooling systems to keep the servers at the optimum temperature to avoid fires & faults.
• Earthing, Bonding & Surge Protection systems to ensure optimum uptime and no data loss. Even a tiny surge in an unprotected data center could cause critical services like Netflix (which runs on AWS) to become completely unavailable in a country.

Axis also helps assist in Testing the Earthing System of a Data Center. If you are building a new data centre, contact us to design an earthing system to ensure that your data center has the highest uptime and speed with zero data loss.
