Video: Earthquake-Proofing the Data Center

A demonstration of ISO-Base technology from WorkSafe Technologies, which sits under data center racks and allows them to shift during an earthquake, reducing damage.

We've previously noted the use of seismic isolation technology from WorkSafe Technologies to earthquake-proof data centers for Boeing and customers in Japan. The company's gear was recently installed in a new data center facility for the city Bellevue, Washington, and Dylan Mason of WorkSafe provided a demonstration of the ISO-Base platforms, which sit under the data center racks and allow them to shift independent of the building during an earthquake, reducing damage. This video runs about 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
