Problems Diagnosing Zinc Needles in High-Tech Environments
via Sterile Environment Technologies
The issue of Zinc Needles (or Zinc Whiskers) has been plaguing data centers worldwide for almost 50 years, causing catastrophic downtime in high-tech environments. For the past decade, disaster recovery companies have been stepping forward to remediate this contamination from high-tech computer centers; thus the term Zinc Remediation was born – and there are many companies around the world who have paid large amounts of money to have this service performed. The problem is that many of these remediation companies are not properly testing the problem; and this may be costing their clients tens of thousands of dollars or more of unnecessary expense due to misdiagnosis.
