The data center is the most important room in the company. Equally as important is the health and well-being of data center staff. In the event of a disaster, data center employees must be prepared to react in a calm manner that both preserves life and, as much as possible, minimizes damage to equipment. Safety and efficiency are therefore the two watchwords of a sound data center evacuation plan.
