Have you ever gotten into your car in the morning, only to discover the battery that was fine last night is now completely dead? We have, too. It’s the making of a bad day.
Now imagine a similar scenario but in the context of your data center monitoring.
Batteries Keep the World Running
In recent days, we’ve all heard of power outages due to weather, natural disasters, or increased demand. Often these outages impact entire regions and take days to resolve. Even if your company doesn’t weather a natural disaster, it’s a matter of time until you will lose power at your facility for one reason or another. Batteries are your main line of defense when it happens. You need to know your battery backup will keep your business up and running while the power is out.
Are you prepared?
Lack of Data Center Battery Monitoring Could Bring Down the Whole System
Once you have a backup system in place, monitoring the health of your batteries allows you to know how well your system will handle a power disruption. Batteries are daisy chained together, so if one goes out, the entire system is compromised. And, batteries can fail in as little as two days, so quarterly monitoring just doesn’t cut it. You need to be protected every day.
With the solutions Predictive Technology Inc provides, you can detect issues months before a battery would fail. You can also extend the life of your batteries by selectively replacing only the failing jars or cells. This makes your company more eco-friendly and saves you money at the same time.
Remote Data Center Monitoring Is Here to Stay
One more thing to think about: we’ve been hearing a lot about remote data center monitoring lately. COVID is just one example of why it’s so vital. In addition to allowing for reduced staffing within a building, many companies are headquartered in a different location than their data center (Mission Critical Magazine recently discussed this trend in depth).
We’ve been working with clients in a variety of industries to get remote monitoring and alert systems up and running as we’ve seen increased need for flexibility during this COVID time. If your backup system runs on batteries, you need a remote monitoring plan so you can be informed of issues as soon as they occur.
