Environment Monitoring in computer rooms, data centers and other facilities has become a critical part of 'Disaster Prevention' for professional managers everywhere.
The reason is that a typical IT infrastructure supports the entire organization. Without continued operation of IT resources, an organization may have no access to information, databases, email or the internet. Even worse, an organization may appear 'out of business', 'unstable' or simply 'irrelevant'. Property, people and the facility also need to be monitored and protected.
The most common environment problems encountered continue to be air conditioning and power failure. Air conditioning failure can lead to high temperatures, high or low humidity, water flooding and more.
Power failure can lead to costly network, server, and website downtime - nevermind the cost to replace or fix expensive equipment. Extreme temperature changes due to heating or cooling equipment failure and even seasonal changes can damage hardware, threaten uptime, block network access and destroy data. During downtime, ongoing costs continue to accrue while more and more profits are lost.
Thankfully, there are easy, inexpensive and proven solutions available from PPS to prevent environment caused disasters.

Environmental downtime is a significant cost to organisations and makes them unable to do business because what happens in the computer room effects everyone. Installation of physical IT & facilities environment monitors based on monitoring temperature, humidity, power, flood, smoke, air flow, room entry and other conditions is the most proactive way to reduce the unnecessary costs of expensive hardware replacement or unplanned downtime.
