Computer Room Management
Computer room, or Data Centre, uptime is critical for all organisations today and at Assurity Consulting our consultants have over 100 years’ collective experience of working in these environments to help you demonstrate effective control.
Our specialist assessments provide you with detailed data on the environmental performance of your computer rooms, from air quality to zinc whiskers. We interpret the individual results and consider the trends developing as a consequence of any changes within the suite to help you maintain the “up time” and availability of your computer room resources.
Our consultants can provide the best advice, training and guidance for working in and maintaining a safe, clean and so optimally, operational computer rooms.
What do you have in place to manage yours?

- Temperature and humidity (circulating, supply and hardware variances)

Our computer room consultants are trusted by many leading organisations to ensure the integrity of this vital asset. We are one of the very few UK companies to be able to offer zinc whisker assessments.
The fact that our consultants do not offer remedial services gives them the freedom to focus totally on your situation and your needs, now and into the future.
An always available asset
We know how vital your data is to the performance (even the survival) of your organisation. That is why we work to ensure that it is always available. And that is why our expertise is always available to you.
Computer rooms have changed dramatically over recent decades, but the need for secure information on demand remains the same. Guaranteeing uptime and keeping core power running is essential in today’s organisations and, while fail-safes are factored in at design stages, it is often ongoing checks on the operating environment that can get forgotten.
If you need expert, independent advice on your computer rooms or data centres, please call us today for a detailed, confidential and without-obligation discussion of your needs.
