Datacenter management

A data center is a computer system's most important and vulnerable component. At its most basic, the data center is a physical place that houses a computer network's most critical systems, including backup power supplies, air conditioning, and security applications. A typical example of a company that almost certainly has a data center is a bank or other kind of financial institution. Data centers contain information that is critical.

Security measures surrounding such data centers are usually very strong, as are systems of climate control that keep the data center's computer systems from malfunctioning. Data centers will also almost certainly contain backup computers or mirror drives that protect against massive data loss. Such backup computers or mirror drives are routinely dependent not only on electronic power but also on battery power, so that they can continue to function in the case of an interruption of electronic power.

Thermography Assessment in Data Centers

Digital infrared thermography of the data center electrical infrastructure identifies and analyzes hotspots or other conditions that exceed industry thermal guidelines by measuring the temperature of the master breaker, transformer, disconnect switch, UPS, distribution board and switchboard. This service creates and submits reports that include infrared photographs. It also measures current values in spots in the distribution line where high temperature is measured, conducts a visual check of the installation of equipment and distribution line labels, checks the maintenance records of the electric infrastructure and reports an improvement plan.
