Smart City: Systems, Sensors, and Networks

Posted by RJ Tee on Apr 19, 2019 12:57:21 PM

For those of us who work in the data center and IT space, the idea of a smart city is not overly surprising.  In fact, the smart city is a macrocosm of the workings of a data center.  Servers, powered by an intelligent PDU, process and collect data across complex networks.  Data center environmental monitoring systems manage the cooling and power ‘utilities’ through a network of sensors of varying types.  And thanks to Moore’s Law, the amount of data that is collected, processed, and stored has grown exponentially.

Top Tools For Data Center Environmental Monitoring

Posted by RJ Tee on Feb 24, 2017 8:05:00 AM

There’s an old proverb that goes, “Trust, but verify.” This sentiment is particularly apt for data center management, where it’s vital to track every metric you can get your hands on. The need for better environmental monitoring capabilities is increasing due to increasing compute, network, and storage densities and increasing operating temperatures in the data center. Thus, keeping close watch over environmental activity in your data center, particularly when it comes to temperature, and humidity in the rack are critical to prevent disasters if left unchecked. So, what is the best way to get four or more data center environmental monitoring points in your cabinets?
