In today’s modern computing world, data centers have become an indispensable part of business infrastructures, housing MegaWatts of power and are responsible for storing and processing tons of critical data, making reliability and security critical concerns.
In today’s evolving landscape, data centers have gone beyond centralized on-premises facilities and can be found in edge deployments and public cloud services. This transformation makes it imperative to maintain data centers’ reliability and security and consider new variables such as power and energy requirements, cooling, security, rack space, and CPU availability.
Data center outages, data interruptions, and downtimes are costly, with Gartner estimating an average cost of $5,600 per minute of downtime. This amounts to an average of $140,000 to $540,000 per hour, depending on the organization. Good redundant systems combined with preventive and predictive maintenance capabilities can improve equipment reliability and system availability, reducing downtime and its associated costs.
To achieve this level of reliability and security, data center managers need a system that can collect all kinds of data from different types of equipment within the data center. This includes data related to infrastructure components like UPS and Batteries, Fire System, Temperature and Humidity, PDUs, Branch Circuits, Generators, HVACs, and more. By gathering and analyzing this massive amount of data, data center operators can closely monitor their equipment and translate the information into data that is suitable for making decisions and predictions.
