Just last October, AVTECH celebrated the first International Data Center Day with Room Alert. International Data Center Day was created out of a need to bring informed awareness of what data centers are, why they are so important in today’s technological world, the careers surrounding the industry and how it impacts future generations.
We are excited to join the conversation surrounding International Data Center Day by showing how proactive environment monitoring with Room Alert is designed to help businesses, facilities and organizations of all kinds, but specifically for data centers and other IT settings. Our Room Alert monitors, sensors and accessories are the best solution for preventing costly downtime in data centers. Here at AVTECH, we understand that 30% of costly downtime is caused by environment factors such as high temperatures and humidity, power loss, water damage and flooding and so much more.
So we want to educate everyone, specifically data center professionals, on how Room Alert monitors and sensors protect data centers, server rooms and other IT spaces from costly downtime that can lead to lost revenue, unhappy data center professionals and customers and in the worst scenarios, going out of business. In today’s online world, downtime for even a few minutes can mean life or death to your entire business. It is imperative to include proactive environment monitoring in your business continuity plan and Room Alert is here to ensure the success and longevity of your data center.
We have over 32 years of industry expertise, and our products have been installed and trusted in over 185 countries, on Antarctica and even space! There are many reasons why Room Alert is the most popular product for IT & Facilities monitoring for companies such as:
