  through infrastructure monitoring

   1. Sensing temperatures           6. Intelligent control of critical
   2. Monitoring power usage             power
   3. Monitoring rack                7. Managing alerts and alarms
      conditions                     8. Monitoring energy efficiency
   4. Detecting fluid leaks          9. Monitoring batteries
   5. Intelligent control of         10. Monitoring and managing
      precision cooling                  remotely

Move Beyond Just Collecting Data–
  Use it to Improve Performance
Managing alerts and alarms
 Centralized alarm management
  system can help prevent problems
  before they happen

 Allows for faster, more effective
  response to system problems

 Enables analysis of equipment
  operating trends and development of
  more effective preventive
  maintenance programs
Monitoring energy efficiency
 Reduce energy consumption while
  increasing IT productivity

 Track total data center
  consumption and automatically
  calculate and analyze PUE

 Best practice: Rack-level
  monitoring provides most accurate
  picture of IT equipment power
Monitoring batteries
 Weakest link in UPS system
 #1 cause of unplanned downtime
 Preventive Maintenance visits are an
  important first step
 Dedicated battery monitoring provides early
  notifications and ensures cell deterioration is
  identified early enough to schedule a PM visit
 Emerson survey found that customers using
  battery monitoring experienced half as many
  battery failures
 Best practice: Implement monitoring system
  that connects to and tracks health of each
  battery within a string
Monitoring and managing remotely
 Remote monitoring can lift
  burden of onsite infrastructure

 Creates efficient use of human

 Enhanced data analysis and
  specialization reduces downtime
Benefits of infrastructure monitoring
 Reduce power and cooling energy
 Increase system efficiencies
 Support higher capacities
 Eliminate stranded capacity
 Enhance data center availability
 Eliminate common causes of data
  center downtime
 Gain visibility and control required
  for data center optimization
