A mining and infrastructure equipment manufacturer had a requirement to monitor and visualise temperature and humidity data in server rooms in multiple global locations (UK, Sweden, Singapore and the United States). The CTO wanted to remotely monitor the data, eradicating the need for manual checks with data being sent to the client's Microsoft Azure IoT Hub platform.
Improving Energy Efficiency With Remote Server Room Monitoring
The IT team conducted manual temperature and humidity monitoring checks on paper and only reported back when there were issues. Some locations only had access to server rooms when security provided access, so checks often weren’t as regular as required.
The System Integrator developed a server room monitoring solution with indoor EnOcean temperature and humidity sensors, installed in each server room. If levels increased or decreased beyond set parameters, alerts were sent to the IT team and building managers. All data was processed at the edge with all requested data sent via API to the client's Microsoft Azure IoT Hub platform.
The Remote Data Monitoring Solution Included:
- MobiusFlow IoT Edge Gateway
- EnOcean Connector
- MobiusFlow Cloud
- EnOcean temperature and humidity sensors
- Microsoft Azure IoT Hub Platform
Benefits of Remote Server Room Monitoring With Middleware
The innovative server room monitoring solution provided real-time insight and data aggregation using MobiusFlow. The organisation is now able to remotely check the live temperature and humidity levels of all server rooms across their global estate, reviewing all data in a single MS Azure IoT Hub dashboard.
