Fulfilment and warehouse distribution centres are critical to the successful operation of any ecommerce and distribution-based business. Computer and automation systems play a vital role to such organisations, with most having temperature, humidity and water leakage monitoring system within their server rooms or data centres. It can be as important to extend these monitoring systems to include the stores and distribution areas within their supply chains. Failure to monitor warehouses can lead to unexpected disruption to operations and losses in the form of damage to stock and inventory caused by poor temperature controls, a build-up of humidity and water leakage.
Over the last two years, organisations have been deploying their business continuity plans. Whilst in the UK, they may now be reverting to a new normal, their business, operational and technology strategies are far more intertwined than before the pandemic. No more so than in the healthcare industry, where we are seeing greater interest in lithium-ion battery UPS systems.
Data centres and server rooms are dynamic environments. A ‘steady-state’ of operation is not always achievable due to server utilisation, environmental factors, planned maintenance, system downtime and emergencies. Smaller data centres and server rooms tend to have less investment in redundant systems and can be more susceptible to outages caused by a critical system failure or sudden changes in their operating environment.
The infrastructure systems within a server room or data centre are classed as either critical, essential or non-essential. The three most common critical infrastructure systems are power, cooling and fire suppression, followed by environmental monitoring and security systems. Regular inspections and preventative maintenance are required to ensure that these infrastructure systems are reliable and available 24/7.

Server Room Environments – Business Critical Engineering Systems
The term server room is used to describe a secure and managed environment within a building in which to run IT servers, storage, and networking devices. The rooms may be referred to as a computer room, server room or data centre. A secure and managed environment includes critical power and cooling as the two primary systems required to keep IT running.
Power covers the use of uninterruptible power supplies, standby generators, PDUs and energy storage. Cooling refers to the use of air conditioning (wall mounted, in-row, air handling units, hot and cold aisles) and other cooling systems to maintain a suitable room temperature and humidity. Fire suppression is another critical system and can be rack mounted or installed as a complete room protection system.
A controlled environment uses environment monitoring systems to monitor environmental information within the room. Sensors can gather data on temperature, humidity, water leakage, air flow, smoke, fire, rack access and security. When measured parameters go outside a pre-set level, environment monitors can send alerts to network and IT managers, and facilities engineers via email and SMS text alerts.
Other major build components within a server room include flooring which should be anti-static and may include a raised access floor to provide cable management and cooling, server racks and data cabinets to house IT devices and peripherals, room and rack access control, CCTV monitoring, LED and emergency lighting.
A data centre is a building dedicated to providing all the facilities and services required to provide a secure and managed environment for servers and their supporting facilities. Data centre types include enterprise data centres, run on-premises for a company, colocation – colo facilities where the data centre provides Cloud hosting in the form of computer space, racks, dedicated rooms and data halls, and containerised and micro data centres for Edge deployments. A data centre server requires a secure and managed environment to ensure it is safely cooled and powered in order to prevent downtime and service disruption.
