We also put drip pans which cover the entire ceiling over the data center - we were burnt 2 years ago in a pre-war office building in NYC. (avoid space with wc's above!) The pans drain outside of the machine room into a high-traffic hallway (with a drain). Any drips get noticed very quickly, and we don't have to test the water alarm.
