Noise from computer equipment is on the rise. As the manufacturers of computer equipment try to squeeze more computing power into less space, heat increases while fan size shrinks. With more heat and smaller fans, computer equipment becomes louder and more irritating from the faster spinning, high pitched fans.
Loud computer servers, RAID systems and network switches can get even louder with activity. Users accessing computer equipment cause components to run hotter, requiring fans to spin faster. Cooling fans on the processors, across the motherboards and in the power supplies of equipment all contribute to the increasing noise levels.
Noisy computer systems that are far from human ears can get away with producing deafening equipment noise, but most companies do not have data centers. Many companies have no choice but to place loud machines near the employees. This noise in the work place can contribute to issues you may not realize.
Not only does noise prove to be a constant irritation to people located near the loud equipment, it can have a greater affect on the business itself. Noise can be so loud as to be heard on phone conversations, which can give customers an undesired impression of the company. Also, a noisy environment can make concentration and communication difficult, contributing to mistakes being made and loss of productivity.
