should be equipped with the ability to notify school security, as well as the local authorities should a breach occur. I believe the GW 16 Channel Securitysystem will be perfect for this, as it provides a high-resolution image in its cameras, and the system has the capability of alarming the security team of unwanted visitors. The security system comes equipped with night vision capability and the cameras can monitor a subject in the dark of the night for up to one hundred and thirty feet. This will monitor access to our data centergrounds by any unwanted visitors. Mother Nature + FireSecurity systems are great for thwarting any would be attempts at access by individuals who would like to do our data centers harm, but mothernature is an entirely different beast. While the area where our school resides has not been known for flooding, it’s important the building housing our data
center properly plans for the chance of this occurring. We should house our servers in a location that is elevated so in the chance of a storm that could possibly bring floods we won’t lose everything we’ve worked to acquire. The security system I’ve suggested can monitor room building temperature, and even carbon monoxide/dioxide levels. This will be important in the event of a fire because the security system would alert the security team onsite, as wellas the local authorities should an event of this magnitude occur. While we would rely on the local fire department for any fires, I will propose the installation of halo carbon-based fire extinguishers for our facilities safety as well. These fire extinguishers can eliminate small fires, while also being completely safe for deployment in areas containing sensitive electronics. We will of course house the data contained on these servers on physical media located off-site, used as back-ups that are forever updating, in the event mother nature destroys our data center. AccidentsAccidents could present themselves in a multitude of ways, from servers failing, defective equipment, damage occurring during the installation of hardware, or careless misuse of the equipment we’ve acquired. Introducing a plan for these risks will help mitigate any possible chances of them happening. The buildings will be temperature controlled, and the equipment placed in well ventilated areas to limit the amount of heat that could build on our systems. This will prevent equipment failures, or possible slow downs of our network because of heat exhaustion. Our IT team
will also adhere to strict rules like only moving equipment when necessary, practicing good cabling techniques, and not allowing food or liquids in the data centers. We will install surge protectors on our systems to limit the chances of electric discharge in our power systems possibly shorting the servers out.
