Data Center Management
with RFID

Automate the quality of service, security, and compliance that are crucial to data centers.

RFID has become an integral part of data center management, offering numerous benefits in tracking and optimizing critical infrastructure operations.

RFID systems are replacing manual barcode tracking and Excel lists and help automate the quality of service, security, and compliance that are crucial to data center operations.

RFID For Data Centers

Rectangle-57 RFID for Data Centers

99% Asset Location Accuracy

Real-time location tracking of assets with RFID within the data center.

Up to 100% Equipment Availability

Leveraging RFID-enabled situational awareness to maximize equipment uptime by proactively scheduling maintenance and replacements.

Compliance Readiness

Ensuring data center's continuous readiness for audits with a high compliance score and minimal audit findings.

Asset Tracking Automation in Data Centers

Automation Technology

Data centers come in high-density configurations, with equipment in small and large sizes.
Tracking and identification technologies that can be automated, ie work in bulk, without having to pull servers out of their racks.

Interoperability

With IT Asset Management (ITAM) systems such as Nlyte, ServiceNow, Remedy...

Machines and Humans

A best practice that requires printing and encoding on-site or at point-of-manufacture.

Unique Identifier

Identification, traceability, compliance reporting at item-level.

RFID Systems For Data Center Management

Tracking

Handheld readers are best suited for flexible, on-the-spot, mobile checks, such as scanning a facility without having to remove any item, or identifying misplaced equipment.

Monitoring

Fixed readers can be adapted onto server cabinets to automate real-time visibility at the rack level.

RFID INTEGRATION

Some IT Asset Management (ITAM) systems facilitate RFID integration by providing native support.

Embedded

Data center OEMs such as Cisco and Intel offer equipment that embed RFID to enable tracking features from cradle to grave.

RFID Tags for Data Centers

  1. Data centers are metal-dense environments: RFID tags and labels are available that can be custom-tuned to minimize cross-reads and interferences.
  2. Unique identifier with serialized ID (TID) or custom encoding of User and EPC memories.
  3. Identification information can be printed and encoded, to make it readable by both machines and people.​

Xerafy has RFID tagging solutions that meet industry standards and are specifically engineered for data centers.

Available for both retrofit and source-tagging, the award-winning Xerafy RFID Tags and Labels are designed to deliver optimal performance for IT Assets, be they used on or in metal, and on plastics.

Compact form factors are available to fit blade servers, rack locations, and mobile devices. More options are available regarding chip memory, materials, and mounting options.

Can RFID Be Used For Data Center Environmental Monitoring?

Yes, passive RFID sensors such as the Xerafy Xense series are available to monitor parameters such as temperature and moisture.

The process of monitoring environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and water in data centers is known as data center environmental monitoring. It enables data center operators to become aware of any environmental hazards within the facility and take proactive measures to reduce their impact.
