Cooling and Electrical System
Servers generate a lot of heat very fast – therefore, you must keep them cool to avoid the risks of malfunctioning and even accidents. Set up a server room in a cool, dark space to prolong its viability to perform optimally. This means you need to install cooling equipment like air conditioners and fan speeds. Also, choose a room without windows or with the least proximity to direct sunlight.
A proper automated server room has racks with seismic bracing for protection. Due to the mechanized nature of hard disks, they are highly susceptible to vibration. Even a single earthquake can damage your precious hardware if they do not have braces to keep them in place.
Monitoring a server room can be demanding, due to its stringent requirements. Doing this manually on a daily basis will not guarantee consistency. This is where the automated server room trumps the traditional model. We at IT Solution can set up your server room with smoke, water, fire, and humidity monitors that function automatically. In addition, we can set up a back-up power source for your data in case of an emergency. Instances like electrical surge and power failure can happen, and you do not want these to transpire on your most hectic days.
A fully-functioning automated server room is more advantageous to your company than a traditional model ever would. Make sure your company adapts to technology’s growing demands. Contact us if you are planning to set up an optimal server room for your business.
