This UL white paper provides an overview of generally-accepted fire protection and suppression system requirements for data centers. Beginning with information on the current size and projected future growth of data centers, the paper continues with a discussion of the direct and indirect costs of data center outages. The white paper then summarizes the key requirements of NFPA 75 and the prescribed methods to be employed in data centers to prevent fires and to mitigate their impact. The paper concludes with recommendations for data center developers and operators.
