ARTC takes action to keep data centre cool - Network Accessories
As reported by CIO.com, Australian Rail Transport Corporation (ARTC) is managing to save AU$100,000 (£67,000) per year following the deployment of new data centre technology.
Steve Bogdanov, technology and infrastructure manager at ARTC, said the agency had been required to invest due to its data centre running out of resources.
"We looked at traditional rack units with raised floors and were almost ready to action this," he said.
However, Mr Bogdanov explained that the agency eventually opted for a water-based cooling solution, which ensures rack cabinets and other data centre solutions do not overheat.
"To date, we have not had a failure and this is helping my staff sleep at night," he stated.
In the UK - which is usually much cooler than Australia - keeping data centres at the optimum temperature tends not to be as difficult a task.
But firms are still advised to use server room monitoring solutions to pick up on any fluctuations in climatic conditions straight away.
This helps from a risk management perspective, as it can help avoid servers overheating and suffering service outages.
