Microsoft implements this Physical and Environmental Protection control
Name/Id: ACF1481 / Microsoft Managed Control 1481 Category: Physical and Environmental Protection Title: Temperature And Humidity Controls - Monitoring Ownership: Microsoft Description: The organization: Monitors temperature and humidity levels Continuously. Requirements: At Azure datacenters, temperature and humidity levels are monitored continuously by the Building Management System (BMS). CE team members monitor the BMS from the Facilities Operations Center (FOC), so that they can manage the temperature and humidity within the datacenter before any alarm points are exceeded. BMS is configured with several notification points.
As the temperature or humidity approaches these points, notifications are sent so that the CE team can be dispatched for investigation or able to make adjustments to remediate the temperature or humidity within the datacenter. The acceptable datacenter temperature ranges within cold aisles is between 65 degrees and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. In certain instances, the temperature may require adjustment outside of this range to address local geographical and meteorological factors.
Datacenter humidity is measured by Relative Humidity percentage, Non-Condensing with the current acceptable range between 10% and 80%.
