Data Centre Noise Control
As our reliance on IT and web-based cloud computing continues to rise, the infrastructure to support this growing trend needs to be equally as cutting-edge and efficient. Data centres, whilst housing some of the most advanced computer processing technology, can also generate large amounts of noise if not controlled appropriately.
There are typically 5 key sources of noise associated with data centre operations, these usually take the form of:
- back-up generator plant rooms
- roof-top air handling equipment
- external machinery compounds
- external perimeter screening
- internal data halls
