How to secure your Windows server room

Now that your Windows server room is built, it's time to secure it to avoid data center leaks.

The final piece of the puzzle is securing your Windows server room. At a minimum, you must control and log access to the room via security cards, biometrics or other auditable methods. Avoid punch codes because they can be shared. Consider using security cameras within the Windows server room, using your design template as a guide to determine their placement.

Fire suppression systems will vary depending on local ordinances, and their design and placement may affect your final server room design as well.
