Nitrogen.  I remember seeing an installation with a whole row of compressed nitrogen bottles, looking a lot like a row of welding gas tanks.  It came with major warning signs about the danger to personnel when it goes off.

I think Halon is far less dangerous because it doesn't just work by displacing oxygen, though the details escape me.
