Commercial business, computer room in basement with network servers. Have isolated ground duplex receptacles (orange); one "duplex" on each wall of room. Is it necessary to have GFCI protection in this situation? Only servers and backup UPS devices will be plugged into outlets. Normally I GFCI all outlets in unfinished residential basements. This being commercial and only electronic equipt. is plugged in. All surge & backup protection is taken care of by backup power units. I don't see personnel using these outlets for running drills or whatever. Your thoughts appreciated!! Thank you in advance!!

GFCIs are not required in non-dwelling unit basements or finished dwelling unit basements.
