Environmental Monitoring


Facts & Figures

•Approximately 30% of a company’s critical infrastructure
assets are in unmonitored, sub-optimal locations

•Physical density of the
spaces in which critical
gear is placed has increased

•Network equipment internal
workings have become
more dense, thus creating
a greater power requirement

and increased heat

Facts & Figures
•Blade servers have contributed to the increase in heat emission

•A rack of blade servers can generate as much as 20 kilowatts of heat output (about the amount of heat given off by three household electric ovens)

•For every increase of 10ºC above 20ºC, long term electronics reliability is reduced by 50%Computer equipmentages faster when it gets hot!


Facts & Figures
•The average wiring closet contains $150,000 to $300,000 of equipment, with a typical small
server room housing more than three times that amount.

•Downtime costs for most companies can run anywhere from £5,000 to £100,000…an hour!

•Most companies spend 70%-90% of their budgets maintaining existing networks.
