The Mini Server Environment Monitoring System monitors critical environmental conditions (such as temperature, humidity, and water leakage) that could destroy network components in your server room. When a sensor goes out of range of a configurable threshold, the system will notify you via email, SNMP traps, web-page alerts and visual indicator (red LED).
Use in data centers, co-lo sites, web hosting facilities, telecom switching sites, POP sites, server closets, or any unmanned area that needs to be monitored.
There is an optional industrial mini environment monitoring system for high temperature environments. This industrial system has the ability to operate and monitor in harsh environments at high temperatures up to 167°F (75°C).
As the growth of ecommerce continues, server uptime is more essential to businesses than ever. Uptime is a measurement of how long servers remain operational without crashing or rebooting. The interactions between servers and their environment often pose a major risk to server availability.
Damage caused by the environment can often go unnoticed or incorrectly blamed on other causes. Condensation, rust, and heat damage is usually hidden inside machines, out of human sight.
The truth is that the monitoring of equipment is often not enough; the surrounding environment needs to be viewed holistically and monitored proactively. Let's have a look at several of these threats and the challenges each poses in data centres and other point-of-presence sites where the devices are crucial to a company’s operations and the services it provides.
