Posted on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 by Packet Power Team

Hot spots in a data center must be closely monitored: let the warmest areas in your facility get too warm and you risk degraded performance, outages, and potential equipment damage. Yet they can also drive how much you spend to cool your entire data center. The key is to find them, monitor them, and manage them.

Making the case for facility monitoring

Posted on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 by Packet Power Team

You know that your operations team can use energy usage data to help ensure your entire facility runs more smoothly. Monitoring can also save money by reducing costs and extending the life of critical equipment. It can identify inefficient energy use and times when buildings are approaching peak demand usage triggering peak utility pricing. Monitoring can highlight ways to safely reduce cooling costs. Monitoring delivers the data to help in capacity planning. It can help identify when additional capital expenditures will be needed or that such investments can be delayed.

Even though we know the benefits of monitoring, it can still be viewed as "non critical" when budgets are constrained. Here are a few tips to help make the case for adding power and environmental monitoring to your critical facility.
