Intelligent monitoring of your network environment

Intelligent monitoring of your network environment

Our environmental footprint is of growing concern for many of us at home and within the work place. Of course as individuals we can play our part but we also look to the companies we partner with to also make a concerted effort. The good news is technological innovation is booming and running parallel and is rapidly shifting towards sustainable solutions. This rapid growth is being fuelled by significant investment in research and development and breakthroughs in sustainable technologies.

At the forefront of the growth in sustainable innovations are our good friends at APC NetBotz, part of the Schneider Electric group, who are playing a big part in aiding all us in minimising our carbon footprint with some wonderfully innovative products.

APC are one of the UKs leading providers of sustainability technologies, products and services and an established distributor of specialist electronic components. For more than 30 years they have demonstrated an ability to achieve rapid expansion by focussing on emerging technologies for high growth market sectors. As always with APC their products are backed by the highest levels of customer service and support.

In this blog we would like to highlight a couple of their amazing products.

APC NetBotz Rack Monitor 450

The NetBotz intelligent edge architecture enables the integration of a number of monitoring devices with diverse protocols into a single management platform. Physical and environmental information can be integrated from virtually anywhere in the network, managed in a common format, and presented as actionable intelligence, providing a coordinated monitoring and response capability across an entire enterprise.

The result is a predictive, preventative monitoring solution that provides the advance warning necessary to prevent small issues from becoming big disasters, while increasing uptime, product lifecycle and resource efficiency. Monitoring and controlling critical IT assets in data centers and remote locations is a key component of any preventative management strategy. Yet physical security is often a forgotten aspect of what is otherwise a comprehensive IT security plan.

The NetBotz 450 protects a room or rows of cabinets and its valuable contents, like IT equipment, from damage due to water leaks, high or low temperatures, smoke or dust, humidity, vandalism, theft, and many more dangerous environmental and physical factors, by providing advance warning of equipment failure. Reduce downtime, respond and resolve problems quickly, analyze trends, and lower total cost with the NetBotz 450.

The NetBotz 450 offers high performance security and environmental monitoring over the network. The NetBotz 450 is capable of video surveillance and monitoring to record human activity. The NetBotz 450's additional features include integration with InfraStruXure Central, Power over Ethernet, and user defined alerts making the NetBotz 450 the perfect unit to protect your IT assets from security and environmental threats. The NetBotz 450 can be used in network closets to data centres, but it is commonly installed in server rooms and small data centres.
