The cost of a server shouldn’t just be measured in terms of the initial outlay and the cost of power, but also in the amount of time it takes to manage and the downtime occurred through system errors. For all companies, servers that are easier to manage and that suffer from fewer problems will boost productivity. With the right tools, you can find out how remote monitoring and control can boost your business, making it easier and faster to monitor servers and fix issues.
Remote hardware monitoring is a key feature that all businesses should look out for. With ASUS Corporate Stable Model (CSM) servers, businesses get server hardware monitoring built in via the ASUS Control Center
From a central control panel, it’s possible to view fan speed, working voltages, motherboard and CPU temperatures, and the backplane. Integrated hard disk SMART disk monitoring can keep an eye on drive health, while sensors can monitor CPU utilisation, memory loading and network traffic status.
This information gives a snapshot of system health, but Control Center can also be set to send alerts when exceptional circumstances are detected, such as a failing hard disk or a chassis intrusion. In this way, IT can react to situations before they become critical, increasing the longevity of servers and reducing downtime.
