With a proven track record in designing, building and managing data centre infrastructure, Workspace Technology is ideally-positioned to assume responsibility for the management of your mission critical power and data centre assets. ‘Intouch’ is a 24/7 remote monitoring service designed to view your mission critical infrastructure security. Our Technical Support team will monitor and investigate alarm conditions as and when they occur, diagnosing, fixing where possible and arranging for site attendance when deemed appropriate by invoking the ‘Support’ contract SLA on behalf of the client.
There are three remote monitoring services options from which to choose;
Data Centre Infrastructure Remote Monitoring
Our service covers all aspects of essential data centre infrastructure, including power, UPS systems, generator sets, cooling, fire suppression, environmental and security monitoring.
Critical Power Monitoring Services
The Critical Power Monitoring Service delivers 24×365 monitoring of UPS and Generator equipment identifying faults, tracking systems utilisation and helping to avoid the failures.

Benefits of Intouch include:
- Online data centre system management tool
- Internal staff can focus on core business process
- Fixed and documented deliverables
- Instant online access to network status, performance and outstanding issues
- Pro-active, interactive and reactive focus on the critical infrastructure
- Extensive and proactive monitoring of key performance indicators
- Short and long-term performance degradation can be detected and corrected in advance
- Accurate capacity budgeting to make a trend analysis for future resource requirements
The service is designed to detect and provide an alert to the early warning signs of a potential disaster. The remote system polls the network of nodes which in turn poll the local sensors attached 24×365 and alerts any out of line conditions as they occur.
Intouch can be enhanced with an IP LAN Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera deployment to allow remote surveillance for the room. This enable the Intouch support team to view an area at the time of alert, capture a series of images for future reference or to hone in on a specific area.
