Remote server room monitoring

Sensormetrix : 24 June, 2009  (New Product)
The Sensormetrix Poseidon System enables IT professionals to remotely critical monitor server room parameters over the internet
Sensormetrix announces a range of server room and data centre monitors, to allow users to monitor temperature, humidity and other environmental conditions, including Door open/close of the server room remotely via the internet. Sensormetrix Poseidon System is a remote monitoring system, which critically monitors the environment and alerts the user to any changes within a server room.

The Sensormetrix Poseidon System works on a plug and play basis, allowing you to manage the server room or data centre anywhere in the world. It offers enough flexibility to monitor a number of parameters within a server room. For example when the temperature level exceeds a set level an alarm notification is sent via SMS or email, warning the user to the out of range parameters.

Data centres and server rooms generate a vast amount heat, and environmental monitoring is essential in preventing the servers overheating and crashing. The condition in which the equipment is kept also has an impact on how reliable and how long the servers live.

Nick Lidington, managing director at Sensormetrix, comments, "Too much heat will shorten the life span of the equipment, which could spell disaster for the data stored on each server. With the weather warming up in Britain, temperature monitoring needs to be observed 24/7. The Braham Street data centre in London crashed only the other day, due to the air conditioning unit failing. Typical data centres aim to be around 18°C to 25°C, but Braham Street's internal temperature reached 50°C causing the crash.

"Having a monitoring system in place will alert you to any initial problems. The majority of companies don't pay attention until they experience a major problem and it is too late. Our systems can send updates every five seconds, so if there is a sudden change within the server room you are alerted immediately. It is not just the large companies, small businesses also have their servers running for long periods causing excess heat. Putting this simple remote monitoring system in place will reduce additional expenditure of replacing heat damaged equipment."

Sensormetrix server room monitoring systems are used in many other environments, such as zoos, warehouses, laboratories and museums. The remote monitoring sensors monitor the temperature and humidity of individual components as well as rooms. The monitors are easy to connect up via the internet, allowing the individual to monitor the environment remotely and efficiently.
