Data center walls – what is considered secure?

Data Center Security
We are building out a site where the suites or modules are by Megawatt not square feet. We need to be flexible in the size of each suite and want to know what the data center industry considers, from a physical security standpoint, an adequate wall system. We prefabricate wall systems at the same site as our data center for lease, but have been unable to determine a wall system design standard. Any ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you looked at the EIA/TIA 942 standard? You have to pay for the document but here’s a good primer on <a href=”http://www.ieee802.org/3/hssg/public/nov06/diminico_01_1106.pdf”>what 942 contains</a>. Definitely don’t want to go with drop ceilings. ;-)

Nice document, thanks!
