Case Study: Server Room Monitoring With MobiusFlow
Learn how middleware can be a valuable component of your server room monitoring solutions.
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.
The IT team conducted manual temperature and humidity 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.
IAconnects 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 and at the edge using IAconnects MobiusFlow software, with all requested data sent via API to the client's Microsoft Azure IoT Hub platform.
The IoT Solution Included:
- MobiusFlow IoT Edge Gateway
- EnOcean Connector
- MobiusFlow Cloud
- EnOcean temperature and humidity sensors
- Microsoft Azure IoT Hub Platform
The innovative server room monitoring solution provided real-time insight and data aggregation. 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.
