Sustainable fire suppression solution for data centres - 10am CET, April 3rd

Bart Goeman, 3M Electronics Markets Materials Division
3M has developed, introduced and commercialized an unprecedented sustainable halocarbon clean extinguishing agent whereby researchers have struck a balance of not only being effective in fire extinguishing but also demonstrating superior environmental properties in combination with a low toxicity and reduced space and weight requirements. It should also possess sufficient chemical/thermal stability during handling and in end use.. This halocarbon belongs to the fluoroketone class. The chemical formula of CF3CF2C(O)C(CF3)2 is identified in the new ISO 14520 standard by the ASHRAE nomenclature FK-5-1-12.
Commercially known as 3MTM Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid and manufactured by 3M Company, this novel clean extinguishing agent has been shown to combine the performance and environmental attributes sought by industries that demand the high level of performance previously provided by halon until its phase-out. Compared to inert gas and water mist, systems using Novec 1230 fluid are much compacter and as such require much less space (and weight concerns).
What is unprecedented is this fluoromaterial's environmental properties that are on the order of naturally occurring compounds. Novec 1230 fluid has a surprisingly short atmospheric lifetime and yet has exhibited the stability necessary for use as a clean extinguishing agent.
Novec 1230 fluid was introduced in 2002 as a halon replacement alternative to HFCs and now has a history of use globally for the protection of special hazards / high value assets, especially in occupied spaces resulting in greenhouse gas emission reduction in industries where environmental objectives stress the use of sustainable technologies.

    In this case study we will cover:

    • How the attacker executed a “smash-and-grab” attack aimed at stealing intellectual property.
    • How FireEye detected the attack as it was beginning and re-secured the network and prevented sensitive data from leaving the client’s networks.
    • Best practices for investigating and responding to similar attacks.

  • Everyday consumers assume that when making a purchase, online or in-store, their card data is handed off to a trusted source, with security in place to protect them. However protecting these transactions and the retail payment ecosystem has become increasingly complex, with recent data breaches of large retailers testament to the vulnerabilities.

    In addition, compliance with PCI DSS fails to address some of these vulnerabilities resulting in potential exploitation with disastrous consequences. To address these security gaps the scope of security needs extending from the merchant, acquirer, switch and bank or card issuers to include the manufacturers of payment terminals at the point of sale and developers of payment application software.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how by using Point-to-Point Encryption, card data is encrypted from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in an encrypted state consistently until it arrives at the payment gateway.

    Then understand why many merchants are considering P2PE not only to secure vulnerabilities, but also because it can effectively remove some of the merchant’s own security infrastructures from the scope of compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS. Lastly understand why encryption is only as secure as the encryption keys as when cryptography is used to protect valued data, the risk is transferred from the data to the keys.

  • Delivering your next generation data-centre or server room Recorded: Apr 3 2012 49 mins
    The data-centre landscape has changed dramatically in recent years as virtualisation technology has matured and the hypervisor has become the platform of choice for deploying IT services. This first phase has generally involved less critical applications alongside test and development environments. Initial cost savings though have often been negated by the hidden costs of technology transformation – new licensing regimes, re-skilling costs amongst others. As organisations move to the next phase and start to virtualise more business critical applications, they are looking to address key issues such as improved management, optimisation, resilience and performance whilst at the same time reducing the operational costs involved. This short webinar will highlight some of these key issues and discuss some of the options available today to solve some of the challenges you face in building out your next generation data-centre or server room.

  • The Future of Data Centre Cooling? - 3M's Open Bath Technology Recorded: Jan 10 2012 46 mins
    The limitations of legacy air cooling schemes are by now well known. Even the latest free-air cooling technologies have limitations relating to primarily to power density and energy efficiency. While emerging technologies such as direct water cooling can dramatically increase efficiency, density and the thermodynamic availability of waste heat, these approaches add complexity, cost and risk that the commodity datacom industry may be unwilling to bear. Recently published work has suggested the utility of a new cooling strategy termed open bath immersion cooling for datacom equipment. In this simple concept, servers are immersed side-by-side in bath of nonflammable dielectric liquid that boils off the heat generating devices. The vapor so generated condenses on a coil cooled by facility water and passively falls back to the bath. The process takes place within modular semi-open baths, so-called because they are closed when access is not needed but operate at atmospheric. Power densities as high as 4kW/liter have been demonstrated with densely packed modules that simulate CPU packages. This presentation will include an overview of research to date including a comparison to existing pumped water systems and an introduction to a system-scale project currently in the proposal stage that would demonstrate the commercial viability of the technology.
    Phil Tuma is an Advanced Application Development Specialist in 3Ms Electronic Markets Materials Division in St. Paul, Minnesota USA. He is currently working to demonstrate the utility of passive 2-phase immersion for cooling power electronics and datacom hardware.

  • Improving your Data Centre Anti-Contamination Strategy Recorded: Dec 6 2011 48 mins
    It is becoming ever more important to prevent dust and particules from entering data centres because thermal efficiency can be reduced dramaticallly due to build up on heat sinks, fans and air filters. For years, critical areas in pharmaceutical, health and precision engineering sectors have deployed polymeric material to walkways floors and entrances. This technology has now been deployed to the data centre industry successfully resulting in improved effectiveness and reduced costs.
