"Maintenance of Non-Traditional Computing Environments" by Rich Hill, President, Data Clean Corporation.
Not only has computing changed dramatically over the past decade, but so have the environments in which we perform our computing. While the traditional raised-floor, drop-ceiling, one-owner data center certainly still exists, there are many other environmental configurations that can now be considered typical or commonplace. New and different architectural configurations demand different maintenance protocols. This on-demand presentation addresses the unique considerations for cleaning and maintenance required to ensure safe and reliable computing in non-traditional facilities, such as factory production areas, wiring closets, areas without under-floor or ceiling plenums, colocation facilities and warehouses. This material presented will track and reference the newly proposed ASHRAE Datacom Environment Contamination Levels.
