Close the Open Loop with an Effective Data Center Monitoring

  1. 1. Close the Open Loop with an Effective Data Center Monitoring Solution Ensuring the success of a data center initiative is a complicated process. It is important to balance mission-critical facilities with the needs of an organization, in order to maximize the efficiency of data center operations without interfering with other organizational procedures. The major concern of IT management is to keep the data center running at peak performance with millions of dollars of critical IT assets,and most importantly, to protect enterprise corporate data. Fully understanding the asset base is necessary in order to ensure that full lifetime value is being gained from the individual IT assets available. Improvising can mean costly downtime and millions of dollars lost. Data center monitoring has become critical to the survival and competitiveness of the organization. You need to keep an eye on the pulse of the environment that is being managed in order to get a real-time picture regarding the status of your infrastructure. This not only helps predict future requirements, but also savesmoney and helps avoid any possible disasters. Today’s modern infrastructure monitoring technology does not only take up space in your server room; it takes up IP addresses as well – lots of them. Luckily, this can be simplified using the Daisy Chain Sensor technology that can eliminate the cost of additional software and/or IP addresses. Data center environmental monitoring is another area that has become a critical part of data center infrastructure management for IT managers. With data center monitoring systems, you get end-to-end visibility of the key environmental factors that could affect operations such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, particle count and leak detection. With the right data center monitoring solution to monitor temperature, humidity, power, smoke, room entry, air flow, etc., organizations can save millions of dollars each year. Using the right sensors, the client can monitor temperature and humidity levels at multiple locations. A reporting and trending analysis is generated on a daily basis that helps IT staff check graphical trends to see if the temperature and humidity levels in their data centers are changing in any way. If an environmental condition exceeds any of the pre-set parameters, the system sends real-time alerts to IT personnel via SNMP traps, SMS and authenticated emailsto notifying IT staff of any changes. They canthen take immediate action to shutdown servers or start backup systems when issues occur. With an effective data center monitoring system in place, along withexisting system monitoring capabilities, you can:  Reduce system downtime  Optimize infrastructure resources  Improve availability  Increase the bandwidth of IT staff  Improve response time to system problems.  Improve the ability to prevent harm to IT networks from facility and environmental factors With these capabilities, a company can reduce the risk of business disruption from IT failures.By effectively planning and managing capacity, improving operational efficiency and preventing outages with an effective data monitoring solution, you can have peace of mind about the ability to maintain smooth business operations.
