There are several good reasons for monitoring a server room or datacentre for temperature and humidity, but should you place sensors and detectors at the server rack or room level and just how many sensors is the right number?
Rising cooling requirements are a common problem faced by many organisations as they adopt the latest server technologies, including high power computing. The higher the power draw of the latest servers the greater the need for air conditioning as their kW power draw adds an equal demand to the size of the air conditioning required. Edge Computing and micro data centres add another layer of complexity to the need for a dedicated remote environmental monitoring system.
Temperature levels within racks, server room or datacentre environment are one of the most important environmental factors to regularly monitor. Sudden room temperature rises can indicate the failure of a critical infrastructure system such as an air conditioner and lead to server failures and worst case a fire starting. Hot-spots within server racks can literally ‘cook’ the electronics and batteries within in-rack UPS systems. Low temperatures can be a sign that the cooling system operating parameters are set too low, leading to excess energy usage and higher operating costs.
Fires in a server room or datacentre are a risk that can be mitigated against by installing a suitable suppression system and testing the room’s integrity. The aim of the testing is to ensure that a sufficient level of the fire suppression agent or gas is retained for a long enough period to extinguish the fire and prevent reignition. Fire suppression systems and their components are normally subject to annual maintenance by a certified fire engineer. The same should apply to room integrity testing and some organisations may be obliged to do so.
