Identify where you have unused capacity in your data center. Vacant rack space, available power overhead and sufficient cooling. Plan your data center expansion and find stranded capacity.
With AKCPro Server asset tracking and management feature you can find capacity in your data center. View available rack space, with power meters check for sufficient power overhead. With the adidition of temperature monitoring and cabinet rack maps, find where you have coldspots and capacity can be increased without the need for additional cooling.
Cabinet rack maps can have assets added. Assets consume vacant U’s in a rack. identify which racks have empty space that new equipment can be installed.
With AKCP Power Meters, or integration of intelligent PDU’s check rack power consumption, as well as max rated power of the rack. Ensure that sufficient power overhead is available before installing new equipment.
Access the AKCPro Server user interface from any device such as a laptop, smartphone, Windows or Linux machine. All you need is a web browser (Google Chrome recommended). There are no apps to install or packages to download.
sensorCFD™ is a free add-on for AKCPro Server. Use it as traditional CFD modelling of your data center with predictions of performacne and airflow. Add in AKCP sensors and you have sensor constrained CFD modeling with actual values and performance data.
AKCP has a wide range of sensors. Speciality sensors for the data center include cabinet thermal maps, contactless current sensors and in-line power meters. Close integration and management of AKCP sensors with AKCPro Server gives a complete end to end monitoring solution for your data center environmental security and power needs.
North Point Community Church has 7 locations within the greater Atlanta Georgia area, and 400 affiliated churches worldwide. With live broadcasts of services and on-demand replays to their congregation the church has invested heavily in IT infrastructure. A 20+ rack data center was established which required an environmental and power monitoring system. AKCP were selected for the project.
Dual temperature and humidity sensors were installed at racks and CRAC vents to monitor environmental conditions. Ensuring that the servers are running at optimal temperatures increases longevity and reliability of the equipment.
