Temperature Monitoring

Protect Your IT Facility... Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!

IT & Facilities Environment Monitoring Made Easy!

Temperature monitoring in computer rooms, data centers and other facilities has become a critical part of disaster prevention for IT managers across industries. Monitoring critical issues such as temperature, smoke, humidity, power and airflow can help minimize financial loss in the face of disaster and reduce the time required to restore operations, which are key to business continuity. Without continued operation of IT resources, an organization may have no access to information, databases, e-mail or the Internet. There are inexpensive, easy temperature monitoring solutions available to prevent environment caused disasters. The Temperature Monitoring channel is your source for information on disaster prevention and how to ensure reliability in the data center via proactive monitoring.

Temperature Monitoring Best Practices for Data Centers
In data centers, avoiding downtime is key. Temperature and humidity fluctuations, hot spots, and other environmental factors can wreak havoc on server hardware and cause costly outages. Additionally, increased power usage not only leads to higher operating costs but can be an indication of an imminent issue.
Temperature Monitoring and Measurement Controller Cuts Power and Cooling Costs in Enterprise Systems
With the ever-increasing demand for computing and storage capacity, data center energy efficiency has become an important concern. The EPA estimates that data centers accounted for 1.5 percent of U.S. electricity consumption in 2006, and this demand is expected to nearly double by 2011, necessitating the development of an additional 10 power plants. Increasing data center energy efficiency through temperature monitoring can help avoid these infrastructural costs, while offering end users significant savings on their electricity bills.
Zysek Makes Temperature Monitoring its Data Centers a Priority
Zysek Technologies Pvt. Ltd., a web hosting company in India, has incorporated a unique idea to protect its data center with precision-based temperature monitoring and environmental control systems - to ensure that its data center is appropriately cooled at regular intervals.
AVTECH Releases Digital Fluid Temperature Monitoring Sensor
AVTECH Software (AVTECH), which develops and manufactures hardware and software solutions designed to protect today's advanced data centers and other facilities, has released its new Digital Fluid temperature monitoring sensor designed to provide real-time temperature values from -67 to 257 degrees Fahrenheit and/or -55 to 125 degrees Celsius for fluids or solutions that need to be monitored.
AVTECH Releases RoomAlert Relay Temperature Monitoring Add-on
AVTECH Software (AVTECH), which develops and manufactures hardware and software solutions designed to protect advanced data centers and other facilities, has released the RoomAlert Relay, an add-on component for their Room Alert 4E/ER environment monitors, which allows low voltage devices to be turned on or off automatically based on conditions reported by temperature monitoring technology, remotely over the network.
A Greener Way to Data Center Temperature Monitoring
Compiled by a high-profile vendor in the field, a recent white paper concludes that organizations looking to become more efficient with their power usage in the data center have a number of options available for their temperature monitoring needs.
GE Invests in SynapSense's Temperature Monitoring Products
SynapSense has announced that it is deepening its relationship with GE by securing an investment and commercial partnership as part of a focus on digital energy services. SynapSense offers several products that provide environmental and temperature monitoring solutions to data centers - and GE wants to improve the infrastructure… greenly.
An Exciting Temperature Monitoring Solution
In these sweltering summer temperatures monitoring your data center is more important than ever. And finding a reliable product that can provide efficient temperature monitoring can seem a daunting task.
What Data Center Death Smells Like: A Personal Experience
One can't help certain types of equipment failure - in our case, it was simply that the UPS' batteries were out of juice. But other factors, like environmental threats, still pose a danger to data centers. Temperature-related concerns, like overheating or overcooling, are some of the greatest threats. Thankfully, we are prepared for growth. Our company has systems in place to monitor the temperature -- temperature monitoring is just one of the precautions we have in place to ensure smooth system operation.
Making the Right Temperature Monitoring Selections... As the Heat Rises
With temperatures reaching the 100's this past week, and with little to no relief in sight, monitoring your data center's temperature is more important than ever. In considering this specific need, one must focus on the two most important priorities - controlling costs and reducing power consumption. While both contribute to the bottom line, a reduction in power can also help the company's approach to going "green" as demanded by many of its clients.
