Monitoring Your Data Center Environment to Prevent Critical Network Outages

Your data center houses tons of expensive mission-critical equipment. Imagine the devastating effects of overheating or water damage to all of this valuable equipment. The potential is huge - repair bills, lost revenue, and throngs of angry customers.

Leaving your network unmonitored is setting yourself up for unnecessary risk. An overheating crisis or leaking water can easily be prevented - you just have to know what's going on. That's where the true value of data center environment monitoring comes in. You can prevent crippling network outages if you can give yourself warning before they cause the damage.

Many solutions to network monitoring fail because they don't see the big picture. They lack the required features to get the job done. Without the right features you're in the same position as not monitoring your equipment at all...or worse. A limited monitoring system can provide you with a false sense of security. Everything may appear to be adequately protected, but in reality it's far from it.

What does it take to monitor my data center environment?
Monitoring your data center doesn't have to be a hassle - and it certainly doesn't have to be expensive. There are some key features you need to look for to find the right monitoring system to handle the job.

  • Live analog monitoring - Analog sensors give you the detailed information you need to adequately respond to threats in your data center. Analog sensors (unlike their discrete counterparts) are capable of providing accurate readings of the environmental conditions in your data center (such as temperature, humidity, air flow, etc). An analog temperature sensor can send you a detailed alert letting you know the temperature has reached a critical level, for example. This allows you to address the problem before the damage is caused.
  • 24/7 alert capabilities - Your monitoring system should provide you with multiple alert options. Internal alerts to a master station won't do you any good if you're at home eating dinner. Versatile alerts that can reach you when you're out of the office (like pages, email notifications, voice alerts to your phone, or SMS text messages) provide you with the most monitoring flexibility.
  • Easy-to-use setup and configuration - A good monitoring system won't require excess training to use, nor will it create confusion in your employees when they try to manage alarms. Simple plug 'n' play setup with graphical web interface are essential features of any good monitoring system. Using a web interface allows you to manage your alarm network from any computer with no extra hassle.
  • Customization support - No two networks are the same. That's why it's important to be able to customize your monitoring gear. Look for a vendor that's willing to customize products to fit your unique networking needs or has an extensive catalog of accessories to add customizable function to your network monitoring.
  • Rugged quality - Your monitoring equipment shouldn't be the first device to fail. It's important to have industrial-grade hardware that can withstand the rugged environments it'll be used in. Without high-quality equipment, you won't get the reliable monitoring results you need.

How do I get started protecting my network?
Imagine how much you could save by preventing one network outage. You can make your job easier by finding the right data center environment monitoring solution. Getting the right solution doesn't have to be a hassle and it doesn't have to cost a fortune.
