Why monitor?

With no monitoring system in place, any out of line condition could escalate into a serious ‘business threatening’ situation. This is particularly true out of hours. Therefore it's important that some form of IT monitoring should be employed by all organisations that have IT equipment vital to their business.

Measurement is key

Measuring key environmental and power metrics at IT rack level is important. As well as keeping a permanent eye on temperature levels, OmniWatch also provides an un-cluttered real-time graphical display of the power metrics of each Power Distribution Unit (PDU) so users can ensure available power phases are balanced and within load limits.

A watchful eye

IT areas are at the very heart of a business and are susceptible to physical intrusion. With reliable surveillance a permanent eye can be kept on what's happening, whether it's approved visitor activity or unwelcome intruder access.

Video Surveillance

Although the majority of Spook customers already have building based surveillance systems installed, some elect to complement this with a separate IP based video system specific to the areas of concern, typically data centres and communications rooms etc. Camera image thumbnails of all configured IP cameras are viewable on the OmniWatch dashboard and a hyperlink provides easy access to individual cameras.

Whether surveillance is required to monitor entry doors, particular rack aisles or to focus on specific equipment, OmniWatch presents this on a single, easy to use, dashboard.
