Environmental Management System for Data Centers
Data center / Server Room serves a critical function in an organization as it controls the flow of data as well as the storage of such data for future use. A data centre runs on a 24 hour, 7 day and 52 week basis, so it is always supported with sufficient air conditioning system and uninteruptible power supplies. Due to its non-stop nature, a data center, requires the highest level of monitoring and data protection from malfunctions caused from damage to the Network Infrastructures.
An environment monitoring system helps prevent the damages caused by environmental threats by monitoring critical conditions (such as temperature, humidity, and water leakage) that could destroy network components in a server room. It uses sensors to track environmental conditions around servers, workstations or data centers. When the system detects an abnormality, such as a temperature increase over the recommended limit, it sends an alert. Alerts can be flashing lights, buzzers, and messages via SNMP traps, email, SMS over GSM network and the system's Web-based administrative interface. After IT administrators receive the alert, they can investigate and resolve the issue. Many systems log environmental data, which administrators can use to investigate problems.
Access Control / Biometric Systems / Time Attendance
For any organization, maintaining discipline in attendance is a challenge, to overcome this a biometric system plays a vital role. Organizations link their payroll to the Time Attendance system which is registered on employees biometric. The automated identification or verification of individuals based on their unique anatomical or behaviorial characteristics such as fingerprints, gait, iris etc. is linked to access control of doors which is operated through a magnetic lock. Biometric Access Control is used at sensitive areas where security is a priority.
