edge data in higher educationBy their nature, edge data centres can be in remote locations away from your core IT system. This makes remote monitoring essential to manage the uptime and efficiency of systems – particularly for critical applications. Maintenance and servicing can also be an issue for companies with multiple edge installations or long distances between offices. In these situations, it can be more cost effective to establish a service and maintenance contract than to rely on internal teams. Implementing a monitoring and maintenance programme that you can trust will help to ensure your edge data centres effectively support your business.

Live monitoring for edge data centres

Remote access to your server provided from within your operating system will allow you to monitor your processes and server hardware. However, in order to keep your edge systems running smoothly, you also need to monitor your data centre’s mechanical and electrical (M&E) infrastructure. Data centre hardware and environmental monitoring can send text message or email alerts for a range of issues. More advanced systems, such as UPS Systems’ REMO software, provide long-term data logging and dashboards that allow you to monitor the health of the system over time. This can help you to identify issues early and prevent any disruption to your operation. The REMO monitoring suite can help you to avoid costly downtime by giving you remote access to key stats about your backup power system. Information on generator fuel levels and battery status will help ensure your critical systems remain powered in the event of a long-term power failure. Designed to be fully independent of site power and communications, and with built-in N+1 redundancy, REMO is a resilient and flexible solution that is ideal for edge data centre applications.
