Real-Time Monitoring of Power and Cooling Systems
Goshen Community School’s new Liebert power and cooling system provides system status information in real time and sends the IT staff email alerts if problems occur.
For example, the SmartRow solution features an LCD monitor that shows information such as the current temperature, while the Liebert APM UPS has an LCD monitor that shows the expected battery runtime if a power outage occurs, says David Snyder, Goshen’s technology director.
The district has set the temperature in its racks at 68 degrees Fahrenheit. So, if it exceeds that by a certain amount or if power goes out, the Liebert system promptly alerts the IT department. “If anything gets wonky, we get an email,” Snyder says.
