All server rooms and data centres require an environmental monitoring solution to ensure they provide a managed and secure environment in which to run critical IT servers, storage, and network devices. Without this type of monitoring solution, they are at risk of downtime, resulting primarily from temperature, humidity, and water leakage problems.
Computer and small server rooms tend to only have one or two server racks to protect from power outages. For these installations, a rackmount UPS if often the preferred solution. There are some factors to consider when planning to install an uninterruptible power supply in a server rack which do not apply to a floor standing tower system.
The way that we are using energy is changing. Hybrid cars are just one example where traditional petrol and diesel engines are combined with lithium-ion batteries to provide a more environmentally friendly form of transportation. Today, new battery and energy storage technologies and advances in on-site power generation allow a server room or data centre to adopt a greener power solution, with lower emissions and one that could be more sustainable in the future.
When selecting a UPS system to protect your server room or other critical IT applications, how do you choose between a traditional lead acid battery for your UPS and the latest lithium-ion battery backup solutions? Whilst lithium-ion battery packs offer longer working lives, lead acid are the more cost effective and to a wider degree more environmentally friendly. The choice often comes down to cost, availability, and the application needs.

Server Room Environments – Business Critical Engineering Systems
The term server room us used to describe a secure and managed environment within a building in which to run IT computers, servers, and networking devices. The room 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 that can be found within server rooms and data centres. Fire suppression systems 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 the IT servers and peripherals, room and rack access control, CCTV monitoring, LED and emergency lighting.
A data centre is a building dedicated to providing a secure and managed server room environment. Data centres can be enterprise data centres, run on-premises for a company or colocation (Colo facilities) where the data centre provides Cloud hosting and servers, server racks, and in some cases dedicated rooms or data halls for clients to run their applications and store their data.
