RFID promotes intelligent management of data center
The IDC rooms of telecom operators are widely distributed, and the ownership of servers is more. It is difficult to automatically inventory and track the location of servers in IDC rooms. Through RFID technology to replace the original manual record, realize the automation of data acquisition, combined with the background computer database, greatly improve the utilization of equipment, reduce operating costs. RFID technology links the equipment in the computer room with the asset management system, realizes the synchronization of physical information, and promotes the intelligent asset management of IDC computer room.
The assets of data center are different from general IT assets, and the requirements of management and control will be relatively high. In recent years, due to the real-time monitoring of the number of machine rooms in rural areas, there is still no need for real-time, easy-to-use data management due to the continuous increase in the number of real-time monitoring devices in rural areas. Combined with the application requirements of IDC computer room server management, the RFID tag is used to bind the computer room asset information, which can accurately monitor the server assets in and out, and quickly and effectively realize the inventory. By increasing the equipment deployment point, the server assets can be monitored in place, leaving the alarm.
RFID hardware equipment installation and deployment
Small computer room: the access control channel reader (RFID channel door) is deployed at the entrance and exit of the computer room to realize the server online real-time inventory, access control, anti disassembly alarm functions.
Large computer room: the access control channel reader (RFID channel door) is deployed at the entrance and exit of the computer room to realize the server online real-time inventory, access control, anti disassembly alarm functions.
Mobile inventory: RFID handheld PDA is used for server asset inventory, and RFID tags within the radius of its travel area can be read in batches.
Application process: real time inventory of server assets, access control, anti disassembly alarm.
The RFID tag attached to the server assets sends real-time inventory signal to the RFID reader device deployed at the door in real time, and the received RFID tag data is transmitted to the system platform through the communication gateway. If the RFID tag of the server asset enters the RFID identification area at the door, if it is illegal, the RFID reading and writing equipment will generate an alarm signal.
RFID computer room asset management system uses RFID technology and network communication technology to manage computer room assets, so as to improve the efficiency of computer room assets inventory, increase the accuracy of inventory, reduce labor costs and effectively manage computer room assets. Each equipment room asset is labeled, that is, RFID flexible (or hard) anti metal label and barcode label (intuitive view) are used to attach the label to the asset surface. Through the RFID channel reader and antenna installed at the entrance and exit of the computer room, real-time recording of the assets in and out. Through the RFID handset for rapid real-time inventory and quick search of positioning asset information.
RFID technology realizes the “whole life cycle management of computer room assets” and “asset automation management”, carries out automatic radio frequency identification, wireless remote transmission, intelligent hardware, big data analysis and other technologies, and realizes the intelligent dynamic real-time tracking and centralized monitoring and management of the whole life cycle (approval, addition, allocation, idle, scrapping, maintenance, etc.) process of computer room assets No manual intervention is required. It provides accurate reference data for IDC computer room Asset Management Department of operators, effectively increases the marginal benefit of investment and improves asset utilization rate, and reduces unnecessary equipment investment and idle waste.
