Reading, Berks, United Kingdom, 2012/08/23 - AIT POWERView enables state-of-the-art power monitoring and reporting of alarm conditions in Sentrum Colo’s data centre facilities - SentrumColo.com / AIT-PG.co.uk.
AIT Partnership Group Ltd, a leading provider of data centre and IT infrastructure services, today announced that it successfully deployed its POWERView power monitoring solution in Sentrum Colo’s Hayes facility. AIT worked closely with Sentrum Colo, its lead customer, to develop a power monitoring solution to report and manage customer power usage within its co-location facilities.
POWERView is specifically designed to monitor customer power usage within a co-location facility. Able to report a variety of metrics (including A, kW, kVA, kWh) it allows co-location companies to observe power used by individual customers and be alerted when pre-set alarm conditions are breached, such as power failure. End customers may also log-in via a secure web interface to check on their power usage and generate appropriate management reports.
“We are extremely pleased with the PowerView system and how it operates. It is cost effective and possibly one of the best power and environmental systems that we have used so far.” said Lawrence Buxton, Operations Director, Sentrum Colo.
A vendor independent power monitoring solution, POWERView integrates with existing branch circuit monitoring equipment, such as Schneider, using Modbus over IP or SNMP interfaces (among others), or use its own independent branch circuit monitoring/intelligent power strip infrastructure.
“POWERView provides co-location/hosting companies with an accurate picture of power usage at the customer/cabinet level as well as monitoring overall power usage in the facility,” said Steven Bailey, Managing Director of AIT. “Real-time monitoring and alerting tools give co-lo’s like Sentrum Colo a real differentiator that is highly valued by customers in the busy co-location hosting market.”
