Organisations are becoming increasingly dependent on computer systems. A very high uptime is one of the main features demanded of an IT-infrastructure. The ideal would be a computer system which has an availability of a hundred percent, and thus is up 24 hours a day. However, experience shows that this is not a realistic availability, with ninety-nine percent availability a more achievable result. The latter does however mean an average downtime of fifteen minutes a day- or four days per year. Failures in computer systems and networks can cripple your organization. For this reason, Minkels has a data centre monitoring product range, DCIM, which supplements this neglected area of uptime safeguarding. 


Minkels monitoring systems are capable of monitoring the direct surroundings of your racks. The modular and efficient construction of the system makes it easy to check up on a single rack or an entire room. The systems can of course be integrated seamlessly and managed using your existing network management software. A variety of products are available. The various versions feature different numbers of ports. We make a distinction here between intelligent ports and the so-called ‘dry contact’ ports. The intelligent ports are used e.g. for measuring temperature, humidity and air flows. The dry contact ports, on the other hand, are simple on/off switches where e.g. alerts can be read out from CRAC or UPS systems, or which can be used for door contacts.


In the event of an emergency, the relevant people can be alerted in a variety of ways: by e-mail, text messaging, a web interface and SNMP. The monitoring system therefore allows you to always rest assured of the conditions in your computer and the control rooms.
