Code mandates for data center operations — Richard Sawyer, HP

Bitninja


This is a preview of HP Strategist, Richard Sawyer’s presentation at Uptime Institute Symposium 2013.

“Data center operations and management are increasingly the target of codes that impact safety, communications, and economic systems. Going well beyond the guidelines laid out by NFPA 75 and 76, the new 2011 National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) actually provides for regulatory oversight of mission-critical facility management. The White Paper “EPO: Deadly SPOF” presented thorny issues that the current code address, up to a point! This presentation will provide a history of codes as they apply to data centers and provide an update to the paper published in 2009 listing new benefits and costs of compliance with the code. A high-level strategy for answering and implementing code provisions to avoid problems with inspectors will be presented.”
