Data centers are the world’s digital backbone, and countless users rely on the information stored in them. Accessible anywhere and at any time, and even the shortest of downtimes can have considerable financial consequences. Minimizing the risk of fire damage is therefore a top priority: Reliably detecting incipient fires as early as possible and the quick activation of appropriate response measures are key pre-requisites in ensuring maximum system availability. Our state-of-the-art fire safety portfolio can help you keep your data center up and running. 

Comprehensive protection

There are few areas where business interruptions are as costly as in data storage. On average, the financial loss caused by server downtime is 4,672,696.42 FCFA per minute, and fires at data centers can easily threaten the survival of entire businesses. Statistics show that 6% of infrastructure failures in data centers are related to fire, and of those companies hit by a major fire event, over 70% are forced to discontinue their business within a period of three years. For maximum protection, a comprehensive fire safety system is needed to ensure business continuity, personal safety and damage mitigation in the case of fire. Our advanced offering provides optimal fire protection and contributes to data centers’ around-the-clock availability.

Our word of honor 

Very early detection

The high power dissipation in modern server cabinets requires considerable cooling and consequently high airflow rates. Smoke Detection systems are admirably suited to detecting incipient fires in such demanding application areas, where very early fire detection is required and business continuity is paramount. Aspirating smoke detectors continually draw samples of air from the areas requiring protection and evaluate these samples for the presence of smoke particles.

Hassle-free extinguishing

Reacting to an incipient fire quickly and efficiently is essential; however, it is equally important to minimize any damage to the costly and sensitive electronic equipment. Therefore, using extinguishing agents and technologies that will cause no damage to the data systems themselves is of utmost importance. Having the right extinguishing solution can help protect people, data and valuable investments in a cost-effective manner. In such environments we recommend the use of automated gas extinguishing systems (with inert gases or clean agents) and technologies that fulfill the diverse demands of data centers. Our comprehensive extinguishing offering includes the right protection for all areas.

Coordinated protection

A comprehensive fire protection system requires perfect coordination between fire detection, alarming and activation of the extinguishing system. Our holistic approach is a major factor in ensuring first-class fire protection for your installation.

Data management has become one of the pillars of our economy. As result, the protection and operation of data center infrastructure is critical. Transparency is essential for safe and reliable operations – and so is a standard set of management tools for IT and facility infrastructure. An integrated approach to infrastructure management, it covers operational processes from end to end. 

An integrated management approach for full data center transparency

A holistic infrastructure management approach that integrates functionalities of Building Management Systems (BMS), Energy Power Management Systems (EPMS) and Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM). In regard to the latter, that includes among others CFD, workflows, cable and asset management, and advisory and performance services.

From perimeter protection, gate control and intrusion detection, to access control and visitor management, our extensive portfolio helps protect data centers against a host of security threats. To begin, we draw up a strategy based on expert assessments in which vulnerabilities are identified. A security management system should be easy to operate, so all systems are integrated with a user-friendly interface that increases visibility, responsiveness, and control. With smart planning and expert technology, BSE GROUP ETS helps you to protect the operational processes of your data center and ensure business continuity. 

Access control

In data centers, different individuals must have access to different areas of the facility and at different times during the day. Therefore, clear and efficient access control of the various zones is of primary importance. Security areas such as server or control rooms can only be entered by authorized persons with access cards, like a badge or a smart card. In addition, various doors can be dependent on one another. For example, one door can only be opened when another is closed, as in a sluice. As a general rule, access to every zone can be controlled based on time, location and person.

Biometric access

The seamless integration of biometric sensors such as iris, vein or facial recognition allows for automation of the access system performance all the way through to identity control. Access control systems have the interfaces needed to adopt the latest biometric recognition methods. These key functions need to meet the highest security requirements and at the same time accommodate increasing performance requirements of data center processes.

Modular system design

We offer modular electronic access control systems that can be adapted and configured to meet individual needs. In addition to access control, these systems are also used for ID production, visitor management, time management and attendance, and even payment. They can be integrated seamlessly in an existing system environment and implemented for several buildings at multiple locations.

Intelligent video surveillance

Intelligent software algorithms can help process constantly increasing amounts of information. Instead of extending an existing wall of monitors with numerous displays, individual integration of security sensors with camera recording in a single tool. Integrated modules for security planning, daily operation as well as for dispatching and escalation provide for a new quality of security services with smooth integration of security forces and technology.

Cooling accounts for the largest part of electrical energy consumption in data centers after IT. Our integrated management solutions and services can monitor and manage your data center cooling systems and related air flows. This helps to safeguard continuous and efficient operations. We help you approach cooling from all angles — by leveraging the expertise of our technicians or experienced industry partners, we increase thermal reliability, optimize equipment maintenance and reduce operational costs.

Energy savings

Optimizing central plant operations can help a data center facility to achieve energy savings up to 50%.

Driven by strong sustainability goals, the data center industry is at the forefront of exploring cleaner technologies to turn operations green. Through long-term Power Purchasing Agreements (PPA) with electricity providers data center operators can run their infrastructure almost decarbonized on green energy. The only hurdle remains the backup power systems that are traditionally powered by fossil fuels. This transition requires a new approach: Li-Ion battery energy storage systems (BESS) offer a viable solution to replace diesel gensets and achieve fully decarbonized operations, alongside with further grid-related benefits.
