For most of us, a power outage is a sudden and temporary inconvenience that leaves us without our beloved gadgets and internet, that is, until the battery in your iPhone dies. But for vaccine storage, it's clear that a power outage brings larger and more troublesome obstacles.
It is virtually unavoidable to prevent all power failures. Storage faciilities must have back-up plans and back-up equipment to prepare for a power outage. Courtesy of the CDC's latest toolkit, here are a few procedures that you should be implementing in your power outage solution.
1. Do not allow vaccines to ...

Whether you're building a server room, adding on or moving equipment, there are many considerations to mull over. From the basics to alarm systems, it is important to ensure your server room is efficient and to protect your mission critical equipment. Previously in our blog, we have addressed the issues surrounding the microclimate present in your server room; however, it is critical to have an understanding of how a server room should be laid-out and managed. Use our check list as a guide for promoting security, efficiency and productivity:
(1) Your Basics Of ...

It's 2013, a new year with a smaller budget and of course a higher expectancy for better equipment efficiency. In order to have this higher level of efficiency while meeting budget constraints, you would need to essentially extend the lifespan of your equipment. Expanding the lifespan requires a monitoring system that would ensure your equipment is operating in an acceptable range of environmental conditions. Here are our Top 3 Reasons to Monitor Your Server Room / Data Center:
(1) Protect Your Mission Critical Equipment From Failure
The humming of servers is generally a good indicator that equipment is ...

Despite the low temperatures and resulting struggles as of late, particularly in the Northeast, 2012 data remarks this year as the hottest on record, for many states. Still, even with reports of record "highs" throughout the country despite no new "lows", the daunting winter months lie ahead. For homeowners and property managers, this can be a stressful time of year with the potential for failed water heaters and/or burst pipes. We've put together this short list to help you prepare for 2013s arctic assault:
1. Know the heat thresholds!
Most states have different guidelines for heat and ...

We know that every room, especially a server room, has its own microclimate. Even sensors that are inches apart can read different values! Although similar applications might share the same temperature threshold range, every sensor placement location is unique. It sounds strange that there would be such fluctuations in temperature within inches, but this happens because your server room has its own minature weather pattern!
So how do you figure out the correct temperature range for monitoring your server room or where to place your sensor? As many conditions as there are for the actual ourdoor ...

Scorching temperatures, flooding and humid conditions all come together to form the perfect storm. However, this doesn't occur in just nature. This can also occur in your server room! Servers are expensive pieces of equipment and the last thing you want to have is a server meltdown.
Last week we discussed how temperature plays a significant factor in maintaining the lifespan of your server. When monitoring your server room, you need to be aware of the various conditions from temperature to humidity to flooding, the reason being that any of these environmental hazards can seriously damage your servers.

It's Monday. You grab your coffee, toss in sugar and begin chugging your beloved caffeine. There's no feeling like walking into your server room or data center and having it swelteringly hot along with equipment malfunctioning. Even though you tried to prevent this from occuring by installing air conditioning units and other coolers, loss of equipment and information still can happen.
In fact, for every 18 degrees that the temperature remains above 68°, servers lose approximately 50% of their reliability. Servers are an investment and one must take care in protecting such an important asset. Considering the average lifespan ...

What is the temperature in the room you’re in right now? Take a guess, you’ll be correct within a few degrees. Now, what is the temperature of the room? Don’t bother answering that, it’s a trick question because in fact there is no “temperature of the room”, the temperature of the room is a 3D matrix that likely varies by up to 3°C (5.4°F) from one point to another.
In spaces as different as commercial refrigerators and data centers, temperature differences can be even greater. Computer modeling demonstrates how, in a data ...
