RF Code’s Real-time Rack-level Temperature and Humidity Monitoring Enhances DataVita’s Data Center Operations

May 6, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2019--RF Code, a leading provider of real-time physical asset management and environmental monitoring solutions for data centers, today announced successful deployment of real-time environmental monitoring solutions for DataVita, the UK’s only Uptime Institute-certified Tier 3 data center north of London.

This installation addresses DataVita’s need to guarantee 100% uptime for its customers, and improve cooling equipment efficiency by eliminating overcooling. With immediate notification of issues to the network operating center and real-time notification to security to identify opening of rack doors, RF Code provided necessary improvements on visibility and auditability of DataVita’s operations. This installation enabled DataVita to move from simply monitoring building management system controllers to dynamically controlling the system with real-time sensor data.

“We have a 100% SLA and we pay our customers if we don’t maintain that SLA for even one second,” says Graeme Logie, Operations Director at DataVita. “RF Code’s real-time technology gives us complete transparency, which allows us to show our customers that we’re hitting those SLAs.”

RF Code deployed 300 sensors across all 200 racks under management, to monitor temperature, humidity, hot aisles, returns, ducting, and cooling system; then integrated the real-time data capture with cooling controls in parallel with the building management system.

“We were eager to work on this project with DataVita,” said David Williams, Executive Vice President, Products and Marketing at RF Code. “One hundred percent uptime is a critical element of their guarantee to customers and we were thrilled to work closely with them to deliver on this promise. We understand that operational concern and our real-time monitoring solutions provided the equipment and reporting capabilities they needed.”
