PRTG reliably secures the company server room and central IT from crashes
How PRTG defines sensors
In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
Servers are the core elements of the company IT. When servers crash, the entire company is paralyzed. Work processes are interrupted, data is inaccessible, and contracts cannot be fulfilled. Software and services which are crucial to the success of the business are no longer available. The server room, therefore, requires the utmost in protection - from fire and deterioration, and from burglary and unauthorized access.
By using PRTG, you'll be able to protect your server room equipment from damage due to fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Alongside sensors, which constantly monitor the availability of important servers and other hardware in the server room, you can also control air conditioning and environmental factors such as humidity and temperature.
PRTG provides all the right sensors to protect your server room:
- for an uninterrupted supply of power
- for air conditioners when the exchange of heat and air is lacking
- for smoke detectors and fire alarms. Fires can therefore be detected in their earliest stages.
These precautionary measures pay dividends. Customers and partners alike will enjoy knowing everything is running smoothly.
Thanks to PRTG, the entire staff can work with peace of mind.
5 good reasons to choose PRTG for your server room monitoring
A server is a computer or system that provides resources, data, services, or programs to other computers, known as clients, over a network. In theory, whenever computers share resources with client machines they are considered servers. There are many types of servers, including web servers, mail servers, and virtual servers.
A more secure business IT
Ultimately, all IT-based processes run via the server room. Problems in the server room rapidly affect the entire company – with unpredictable consequences. Monitoring helps you to quickly recognize errors and safeguard your business IT from damage. For more information about physical security monitoring visit this topic page.
Servers are vulnerable to ambient temperature fluctuations, excessively high or low humidity, and power outages. Server rooms therefore require constant monitoring.
Ensure data compliance
Sensitive customer and company data are in need of special protection. Clear rules must therefore be established for accessing the server room. Unauthorized manipulations can be prevented by way of access control and logging.
PRTG provides automatic alerts. Simply define the relevant threshold values and PRTG will send you an alert corresponding to your configured preferences via SMS, e-mail, or push notification – wherever you are.
React quickly and proactively to any problems which occur in the server room. In many cases, errors can be fixed before server failures are even noticed.
