Wireless, Real-time, Environment Monitoring Solution

We have packaged a total solution for data center environment monitoring.  Our primary focus is to allow organization understand the environment where they host their mission critical equipments.  Most data center continue to crank up the CRAC units at their data center and freeze the entire server room without a clear picture of the environment situation in the data center.  Traditional BMS system just measure one a 2 points in the server room, which is grossly in efficient.  With the increasing powerful server equipments such as blade server, we now have racks which are easily over 5kW.  In comparison, a commercial oven or stove is typically only 4kW.  This is why localized hotspot can easily develop in your data center!

With rising energy price and the Green IT movement, it is not only hip to optimize your data center cooling, but it also save your organization money.  If Google said you should raise you data center temperature, it must be the correct thing to do right?  Don't trust Google? What about the engineers atAmerican Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). ASHRAE has update their environment condition recommendation for server equipment, and they have increase the up-limit equipment in-take temperature to 27 deg C.  Don't want to take the risk of causing environment problems in your data center by initiating a cooling optimization effort?  Well, monitoring it first!
