It's Monday. You grab your coffee, toss in sugar and begin chugging your beloved caffeine. There's no feeling like walking into your server room or data center and having it swelteringly hot along with equipment malfunctioning. Even though you tried to prevent this from occuring by installing air conditioning units and other coolers, loss of equipment and information still can happen.
In fact, for every 18 degrees that the temperature remains above 68°, servers lose approximately 50% of their reliability. Servers are an investment and one must take care in protecting such an important asset. Considering the average lifespan of a server is 4-6 years, it would be more cost-effective to maintain your server by keeping it at proper temperatures.
Of course cooling units are a great way to cool down an already hot server room, but there's not always one person designated to monitor such a room 24/7. By implementing a temperature monitoring solution, you can increase the lifespan of the servers and maintain your reliability. Not to mention, you'll avoid a case of the Mondays.
