Seismic Mitigation

If your Data Center is in a region where earthquakes occur and you choose to install isolation platforms to mitigate their effect, increase the amount of space allocated for any server rows that they are installed in. This is to accommodate both the footprint of the platforms themselves, which are usually made to match the size of the server row they are installed in, and the additional range of motion they require to function properly during a quake. This movement is typically about 10 inches (25.4 centimeters) in every direction.
