How to Prepare and Respond to Data Centre Emergencies

DC operations and maintenance teams should always be prepared to act swiftly and surely without warning. Unforeseen problems, failures and dangers can lead to injury or downtime. Good preparation and process, however, can quickly and safely mitigate the impact of emergencies, and help prevent them from happening again.

This recent paper from Leonid Shishlov of our Singapore DC Centre of Excellence and three of our Global Data Centre Services experts describes a framework for an effective emergency preparedness and response strategy for mission critical facilities. This strategy is composed of seven elements arranged across three categories:

  1. Emergency Response Procedures
  2. Emergency Drills
  3. Incident Management

They then offer practical advice on implementing this strategy.
