Improving Datacenter Operations Management Using Wireless Sensor Networks

Increasingly larger datacenters constructed to serve Internet-scale enterprise and Cloud computing workloads are creating significant challenges for the management systems designed to operate them. In this paper, the authors present the design and implementation of a management system that uses server-attached wireless sensors to create an auto-configuring wireless-only monitoring network that can be used to address a number of challenges in the area of datacenter operations management. They exhibit the use of this wireless network in tracking the physical location of servers and in troubleshooting connectivity problems in the wired datacenter network infrastructure.
