Ensuring effective management requires visibility. Despite its importance in preventing costly and unplanned downtime, power monitoring remains an overlooked aspect of data center and facility management. Beyond identifying potential power issues that could lead to outages, a power monitoring solution also plays a crucial role in addressing other significant challenges faced by data center managers, such as enhancing energy efficiency and supporting capacity planning. To guarantee continuous system availability, efficient operations, and a future-ready facility, power monitoring is an indispensable tool for safeguarding and optimizing the data center environment.

There are various types of power monitoring solutions available, ranging from basic to comprehensive. While each solution offers distinct features and advantages, the primary objective of power monitoring is to gather real-time data on power consumption across a facility and present it in a user-friendly format to data center managers and decision-makers.

Power monitoring is accomplished by utilizing power monitors, sensors, meters, and power monitoring and management software to oversee various devices such as uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units and power distribution units (PDUs). Additionally, critical infrastructure elements like utility feeds, generators, branch circuits, and others can also be monitored. The latest UPS units and PDUs often possess “smart” or “connected” features, which means they have built-in monitoring and communication capabilities that eliminate the need for additional sensors. Conversely, older equipment typically requires supplementary sensors. Depending on the chosen power monitoring solution, it is possible to monitor power levels at different levels – from the overall facility down to the individual outlets.
