What can be done to control noise levels in data centers?
The sound level in our data center is so high that it interferes with conversation, not to mention concentration. The decibel level has been periodically checked using sound meters, and the highest we have recorded was 81 decibels, less than the 85 decibel level that would trigger OSHA restrictions. Even so, it is loud enough to get old in a hurry. What are some effective ways to lower the noise level to improve the working environment in data centers?
