Too hot. Too cold. Too remote. Too complex. Too costly. The challenges in today’s wired data centers are endless. IT professionals must control data center environments, track remote locations, and manage complex and constantly changing equipment and the wires that connect them — all while striving to contain costs.
What’s more, the challenges keep building and the pressures keep rising. For example, from compressed
server designs to virtualization software to circuit density, hotter devices are placing increased stress on data centers’ environmental control. Historically, efforts to monitor and control temperatures that keep equipment safe have been to blast air conditioning into the rooms. But with today’s rising energy costs, this safe-gap significantly increases
