Monitoring of conditions in data centers

Monitoring of conditions in data centers

Most enterprises or institutions have their own computer centers called server rooms. These are air-conditioned rooms, protected against unauthorized access in which there are server computers. The design of the server room should provide an ergonomic arrangement of cabinets and racks on which servers are located, separating the room with servers from rooms for operators, while the floors must allow cables to be laid in the ducts.
Server rooms must be under constant supervision, both when it comes to monitoring climate conditions (temperature and humidity), control of power consumption and protection against unauthorized access.

Efento provides a solution to complete monitoring.  The system allows, among others, sending SMS / email alerts, generating automatic reports, sound alarming on exceeding thresholds and signaling power failure in the facility.

What and where you should monitor

Temeprature in data center

Temperature monitoring and proper placement of sensors is extremely important for maintaining the correct operation of devices. Temperature sensors are mounted both indoors and directly at the device inlets in the rack. The optimal temperature in the server room should be between 20°C and 21.5°C. The server inlet temperature should be between 18°C and 27°C, while the hot air outlet should not exceed 20°C above the inlet temperature. The optimal solution is to install 3 sensors for each cabinet: one in its lower part to measure the temperature of cold air reaching the cabinet, the other in the upper part to make sure that all cold air reaches the upper part, while the last one at the top of the air rack outlet, which is usually the hottest point.

Humidity in the room

Another important factor that needs to be monitored in the server room is air humidity. Dry air often causes accumulation of electrical charges on server equipment and leads to very harmful surges. In turn, too high humidity causes the formation of water vapor, which can lead to very dangerous short circuits.
The correct level is 40-60% relative humidity, and the optimal value is in the range of 45-50%.

Access protection

Enclosed spaces that only authorized persons have access to may be secured by means of opening/closing sensors that detect the unauthorized opening of doors or windows.

Power consumption

Energy costs are a significant item in the statement of expenditure. It is not surprising, therefore, that measures to reduce them are treated more and more seriously, as reducing these costs may increase the company’s profitability.
The Efento system allows you to monitor not only electricity but also water or gas consumption. The use of pulse counters allows constant monitoring of costs, generating alarms when exceeded, as well as full visualization of data on the cloud platform.

Flooding protection

Water leaks and flooding server rooms can be a less common, but equally dangerous threat. Most often they are caused by leaking air conditioning systems, therefore it is recommended to place flood sensors. These sensors can be point-wired, equipped with a probe with a suitable tip or zonal equipped with a detection cable that allows the determination of the monitored zone.
