Remote monitoring is becoming increasingly vital in the realm of data center management, particularly regarding upholding energy efficiency standards. 
Remote monitoring is becoming increasingly vital in the realm of data center management, particularly regarding upholding energy efficiency standards. 
In today’s digital landscape, small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) have come to acknowledge the indispensability of intelligent solutions capable of safeguarding their sustainability investments while concurrently boosting their operational efficiency.
“Monitoring data center performance is key for understanding the current energy use baseline as well as opportunities for improvement,” the Center of Expertise for Energy Efficiency in Data Centers, part of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, said in a study. “Metering and monitoring systems lay the groundwork for continuous data center improvement, enabling organizations to develop processes that leverage current operations information to identify future energy efficiency opportunities.”
The U.S. Department of Energy, which oversees national labs, has set a policy to make sure that its own data centers undergo a complete review at least every four years to determine whether they are operating at peak levels of sustainability.
