Data Centre Clean Room Monitoring performed as per Standard ISO 14644
A standard for cleanliness for all types of controlled environments including data center, data rooms, and server rooms is ISO 14644-1 2015 Class 8. In addition, all accessible surfaces should be free from dust. This is currently the best practice in all emirates of UAE for IT protection.
“Contamination has been the indirect cause of more IT downtime than all the fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and disgruntled employees combined.” – Jon William Toigo, Disaster Recovery Planning, Third Edition.
If hardware is not optimally clean, it can severely impact data center performance. If sub-microscopic particulates present in critical equipment’s electronics, it can interfere and it is very hard to troubleshoot and can lead to data loss. Dissipating heat is essential for data center operations. Therefore, steady airflow should be maintained through the data center but constant airflow can bring dust, dirt and other types of particulates with it and could damage delicate electronic equipment. No matter how well filtering system is maintained and closed doors are maintained, cleanroom validation is essential to maintain the sensitive electronic equipment to avoid data loss.
The main goal for measuring cleanliness is the amount of microscopic particles found per cubic metre of air in the room. Particle size range in size from 5μm (micrometre: a millionth of a metre) in diameter down to 0.5μm in diameter.
The ISO 14644-1 standard sets up ISO classes from 1 through 9; ISO Class 1 the most stringent, for example, allows only 10 particles at 0.1μm and two at 0.2μm per cubic metre of air. Class 1 is the ultimate in cleanliness, a tremendously stringent standard that only highly controlled environments, such as clean rooms in microprocessor fabrication or drug manufacture, can achieve.
