Globally, the data stored in data centres will more than quadruple by 2021 and reach 163 zettabytes (136 trillion gigabytes) by 2025! Data center owners are turning to the Internet of Things to keep their servers up 24 * 7.
"Where would we be without data centres?"
As modern life is becoming more and more connected to the internet. There is a high surge in sharing critical and valuable information over the internet. Since the start of the pandemic almost everything is moving to online platforms both the big and small firms are concerned about their data safety and condition of their server rooms. Data centers are housed to our most critical and proprietary assets. They are always in the top priority list of every organization for their safety and reliability. In reality every business or organization builds and maintains its own data center or uses rental services from their service provider. But each data center needs, requirements and architecture vary significantly according to the type of their operation and institute.
"Why temperature monitoring is necessary for your server racks?"
As per statista the number of data centers world wide is around 8.4 million and the number is continuously growing every year. In order to ensure that data centers are in good operating condition or maintained in a safe environment both the temperature and humidity plays crucial roles.
According to The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) recommends that server inlet temperatures be between 18 and 27 degrees Celsius (64.4 to 80.6 degrees Fahrenheit), with relative humidity anywhere between 20 and 80 percent.
Temperature and humidity are the two major factors that are responsible for environmental conductivity. If the temperature is too high it can cause damage to the hardware and too low temperature can take a lot of electrical power resulting in waste of electricity. Where as high humidity can lead to equipment corrosion while low humidity may result in a build-up of static electricity. Moreover, too much fluctuation in temperature and humidity affect the OEE overall equipment effectiveness. Power outages, data interruptions and downtime are really costly.
According to market research by Gartner, Data center downtime costs $5,600 per minute on average. In terms of average costs between $140,000 and $540,000 per hour which also depend on the type of organization. The United States alone uses 2,657,700 GB of internet data every minute.
With such challenges, businesses and enterprises need an effective solution that not only decreases the overall cost but also improves the monitoring process at every stage. With the help of Capteurio’s designed technology for complete real time remote monitoring of data centers and server rooms, it is now possible to overcome such problems. Capteurio introduces Capteur Nodes which is an AI powered predictive and preventive monitoring IoT technology to boost equipment reliability and system safety. Capteur nodes will keep the Network admins on alerts using CDAP Dashboard and Mobile application Android/ iOS.
Remote Monitoring Solutions by Capteurio for Data Centers and Server Rooms
Preventive and predictive actions
Capteurio provides full coverage monitoring of every aspect of the data center. Capteur nodes sends environmental parameters to the CDAP cloud. Where AI – Algorithms will analyze data and recommend user for preventive action. The min max thresholds of temperature and humidity can be set up for each wireless humidity and temperature sensor separately. If a threshold value exceeds the min/max settings, the monitoring software CDAP sends warning alerts to users enabling them to start preventive measures.
End-to-End global access
Capteurio end to end “Internet of things” technology can be installed with in few minutes and enables organizations to accelerate business decisions with real time alerts and data visualization. The technology is coupled with customizable device clusters and management capabilities. Users can access the performance of their working units from any part of the world with an affordable cost solution.
