Management & Monitoring

Data Centre Management & MonitoringWorkspace Technology provides a wide range of mission critical management and monitoring solutions which are scalable to meet demands from small communications rooms, server rooms to large scale multi-site data centre deployments.

The ability to alert a business to disasters or potential performance issues at the earliest moment is paramount. If a business can prevent a disaster or the occurrence of ‘over capacity’, it can safeguard against associated disruptions such as waiting for replacement systems or relocating staff to a recovery centre. The management and monitoring of systems is therefore essential to insuring continued availability and performance during the lifecycle of any critical data centre or server room environment.

Our structured approach to management and monitoring solutions is based on a tiered architecture. This architecture enables us to scale our solutions to meet the demands of small communications rooms, server rooms through to large scale data centre deployments.

Environmental Monitoring

We provide video surveillance, temperature, humidity, door contact, VFC/dry contract, vibration, smoke, 2-way audio, spot leak and rope leak premium security and data centre monitoring technology through APC by Schneider Electric's leading range of NetBotz products.

The NetBotz data centre monitoring concentrator range is fully integrated with APC's StruxureWare Data Centre Expert management platform.
