Environmental Monitoring Solutions for Data Centers
If you’re like most facility management professionals, you are likely very aware and currently taking measures to protect your critical facilities from malicious technology threats such as viruses, spyware, and hackers.
While technological actions of this sort tend to dominate managers concerns, the reality is environmental threats such as heat, humidity, moisture, and airflow, are much more likely to create downtime in your critical infrastructure. Critical infrastructures are in danger of falling victim to unexpected, environmental threats at any time. Therefore, continuously monitoring environmental conditions allows you to proactively act to protect your critical infrastructure.

Environmental Threats That Need To Be Monitored Consistently
Your data center infrastructure generates a tremendous amount of heat during its everyday operation. HVAC and building control systems typically maintain the temperatures at adequate points, but should a fan, thermostat compressor, or any other component of the system malfunction, your entire critical infrastructure could be in jeopardy.
The humidity in the air around your data center can be damaging to your equipment, regardless of whether that humidity is too high or too low. Humidity that is too high can cause your equipment to corrode, while humidity that is too low can lead to problems with static electricity. Environmental monitoring is the only way to ensure that the air in your facility stays at the correct balance.
Moisture can enter your facility from a variety of sources, including leaks from cooling equipment, cracks in pipes or air conditioner condensation trays, floods or other natural disasters. Regardless of how the water gets into your facility, it will be damaging for your infrastructure. Moisture sensors can notify you immediately when water enters your facility, giving you time to identify and address the source of the water.
Proper airflow within your facility is important to keeping your infrastructure up and running correctly. If your air vents get clogged with dust and other debris, it can cause problems with your infrastructure, or lead to wasted resources through less efficient use of climate control. Environmental monitoring identifies these clogs before they get a chance to harm your infrastructure.
