Using racks to keep your IT equipment organized is a safe and efficient method to continue daily operations at a firm. However, the physical nature of the equipment puts it at risk of structural damage, especially when located in a zone where severe weather conditions or other natural calamities like an earthquake can be devastating. Since companies need to physically safeguard their equipment, it is important to ensure that the equipment enclosure is seismic proof.
In such a situation specialized racks can help in minimizing excessive motion that could otherwise disrupt the normal functioning of the servers within an enterprise.
A couple of points to consider when operating in the seismic region include...
1.Know your zone
One among the prior things to check when installing IT equipment is the location. It is advisable to collect and analyze the local seismic data for recent years. Seismic standards are often mentioned in terms of risk zones with respect to earthquakes. The seismic zones vary from 0 to 5, with zero to three at lesser risk, and beyond three at higher. An earthquake-proof rack is highly recommended for zones three and above.
2.Install seismic server racks
Seismic racks have enhanced bases and stronger anchoring hardware to keep the rack in place and protected. For example, the best seismic rack cabinets are made in adherence to high-density applications for companies that operate in seismic zones. The best quality seismic rack like the NRSs series from Netrack India offers distinctive features. Made for high-density application in IT industry, and for IT rooms located in medium and high-risk seismic zones, this product offers four distinctive bracing option like High Tension Bracing Bolt, Anti vibration Mount Pads, Ultra Rigid Bracing frame with mandatory Top bracing to be able to mount the rack on True floor or the raised floor based on its type for the highest level of protection. Product also tackles the Airflow management issues with the accessories like Blanking Panel, Air Seal Kit & Brush module for efficiency to ensure effective airflow management within the cabinet specifically for the Data-Centre industry.

How are earthquakes made?


The earth's crust which is 3 to 45 miles deep is in sections called tectonic plates. These slide againt one another. When they slide, they sometimes snag against each other. That entanglement even cracks the crust. All movement does not create earthquakes. It depends on the direction of the movement and the strength of the movement.

I keep getting a error message ssl handshake


The SSL handshake is initiated when your browser issues a secure connection request to a Web server. The server sends a public key to your computer, and your computer checks the certificate against a known list of certificate authorities. After accepting the certificate, your computer generates a key, and then encrypts it using the server's public key. If the SSL handshake fails, your connection to the Web server will not be secure, potentially compromising your business communications. If you cannot make a connection to secure sites when the handshake fails, you know the handshake safeguard is working properly. Test your SSL functionality by intentionally causing the handshake to fail.

Other possilbitiy is the SSL is out of date.

How can I download the instruction manual for Watts's E-75 Water heater Safety Straps.


Hi there! I could not find the specific instructions but did find a link to SDART (Seattle Disaster And Response Teams) which depicts graphics using the E-75 and how to properly secure it to the studs. Here you go: http://www.seattle.gov/emergency/library/snap/skills/Earthquake%20Safety%20securing%20water%20heater.pdf

Iw-803 earthquake sound in wall speaker throws amp into protection mode at high volume.. removed all speaker components ( woofer, mid, tweet) and just hooked up crossover - still shots at high volume....


many amplifiers protect against a short and against an open. They are looking for speaker resistance within limits. Your wire to the speaker may be too long or too thin. You may have hooked up more than 1 speaker per output causing too low resistance. Keep your wires short as possible and use 12 or larger gauge wire if you are driving large wattage speakers. Check the ohm rating on your speakers and compare them with what the amplifier calls for. Hope this helps
