I've read articles about DC fire suppression where claims are made that if you im################y clean up the water, that most of your equipment will be fine with sprinklers, but it seems hard to believe. I suppose it has to do with how much water gets into/on electronic parts that have power running through them.

I don't know, while a lot cheaper than gas, I just can't get comfortable with the idea of spraying my servers with water.
