Data Protection: A Burning Issue - The FIRELOCK Experience
(Page 3 of 4 )
The fire suppression systems discussed in the previous section are all designed to protect data from fires that start within the data center itself. However, when a fire comes from the outside in, as it would during a wildfire, these suppression systems are rendered worthless. In fact, the fire would probably destroy the system before it even made it into the data center. That's why a lot of corporations and government agencies are installing storage vaults from FIRELOCK to protect their vital data – anything from paper records, micrographic media, magnetic media, and optical disks.
Because we're strictly talking about the business data mentioned above, the FIRELOCK Class 125 Server Vaults are the best bet. In general, these vaults are magnetically shielded, heat insulated, have Zone Four Seismic Data Protection, and of course, are fire proof. The panel system employs ceramic fiber, which keeps the temperature inside the vault below 125 degrees. FIRELOCK also has a network of media storage vaults for extra storage. Please check out FIRELOCK's website to learn more about these vaults.

The FIRELOCK vaults are completely re-sizable, so they can fit an existing data center or be shaped to meet the construction necessities of a new data center. The vaults can even be relocated, if need be. And in case you're wondering, the vaults do come with a built in fire suppression system for the fires that start within the data center, which of course are the most common. As you can imagine, the detection system and monitors are all first rate.

I don't think I've mentioned it, but FIRELOCK has the top-rated fire protection storage environment in the industry. With laws like Sarbanes Oxley dispensing harsh penalties on companies and agencies that allow their data to be destroyed, it is no wonder that many corporations and government agencies use FIRELOCK to protect their information assets.
