Preventing Outages by Monitoring, Managing, and Controlling the Data Center Environment.
Data centre threats can be classified into two broad categories, depending on whether they are in the realm of IT software and networking (digital threats) or in the realm of the data centre’s physical support infrastructure (physical threats).
Physical threats to IT equipment include such things as power and cooling problems, human error or malice, fire, leaks, and air quality (Temperature & Humidity). Safeguarding against physical threats is crucial to a comprehensive security strategy.
Remote network locations such as branch offices, network closets, and local point-of-sale locations where it is impractical and unreliable to have people physically present to check conditions such as temperature and humidity, further highlight the need for automated monitoring. With the introduction of unmanned network outposts, IT administrators must have reliable systems in place to know what is going on.
Data Centre Environmental Monitoring equipment is a vital tool that alerts you of any potential threats to your server room or data centre, both environmental and physical.
APC NetBotz offers an active monitoring solution designed to protect against environmental threats and unauthorized access risks that can cause downtime to IT infrastructure, in both Edge Computing and Data Centre environments.
The APC Netbotz range includes 4 different rack mountable, IP based monitors which attach to a range of environmental sensors that simply plug in via Ethernet, USB and dry contact. Sensor options include temperature, humidity, fluid / leak, smoke and vibration as well as security options in the form of surveillance cameras and rack access control.
Whether you have a single rack or 100 racks, the NetBotz range offers a cost-effective alternative to other environmental management solutions for the data centre. You can also integrate with StruxureWare Data Centre Expert (DCIM Software) for a single management platform that helps you holistically protect IT assets from threats and prevent outages.
Which Netbotz monitor suits your needs depends on the size of your data centre and how many sensors you require. Contact one of our team to discuss how we can help.
We have 9 UK data centres and Source UPS are our preferred supplier for infrastructure. Their advice is always valuable and well considered. I would strongly recommend Source UPS.
