Facilities Monitoring

Data centre environment and building management systems provide a vast amount of information. Such information can be effectively used to increase the efficiency and optimisation of your facility and limit unplanned outages, but continual monitoring can be a strain on limited IT resources. That is why, for over 30 years, our clients have outsourced their data centre facility monitoring to Future-tech.

Why do I need Data Centre Facilities Monitoring

The information gathered via environmental and building management systems is crucial to the smooth running of your data centre. Ranging from basic fault conditions on power and cooling infrastructure, to full environmental monitoring, including temperature, humidity access control and energy efficiency, such information can enable efficiencies, reduce risk and increase optimisation – ultimately saving you money.

Why choose Future-tech?

Our facilities monitoring services are managed by our in-house expert facilities management team. All have extensive knowledge of data centre infrastructure systems and are highly trained and able to ensure that faults and issues are noticed and appropriate action is taken. For over 30 years, Future-tech has provided 24/7/365 monitoring services for data centres on 3 continents, and through planned preventative maintenance and good design, we work with our clients to eliminate failure.

Methodology

By using a combination of email, SMS and auto dialler alert systems Future-tech provides monitoring to more than 60 data centre facilities 24/7/365. A vast array of information can be produced by data centre environmental monitoring and building management systems. This can range from basic fault conditions on power and cooling infrastructure to full environmental monitoring such as temperature, humidity, access control, energy efficiency and control of set points and systems.

The data centre monitoring service is provided by Future-tech’s in-house team along with a 3rd party call centre and cloud based communications system. This delivers two independent notification systems that are totally unrelated, ensuring our service is resilient, reliable and fault tolerant.

Through planned preventative maintenance and good design we are continually striving to eliminate failures. By having a knowledgeable and experienced team monitoring your data centre we can ensure your IT systems remain unaffected and live.
