IT managers are to be freed from the confines of their office thanks to today’s launch of interSeptor XPro from Jacarta. With the company’s successful interSeptor environmental monitoring device at the core of the solution, the XPro package enables IT managers to remotely monitor the conditions of any data centre, any rack or any room from just about anywhere in the world.

Jacarta launched interSeptor earlier this year to provide a cost-effective, ‘out-of-the-box’ 10/100 environmental monitoring system facilitating greater security for data centres, IT rooms, individual racks and other critical areas of an organisation. Continuous checks can be made against conditions including temperature, humidity, water seepage, UPS, smoke, physical security and power, depending on the type of sensors attached to it. Crucially, interSeptor can alert relevant personnel, in the event of a problem, via an integral e-mail notification facility. There is also an optional text or voice messaging alert service, all of which can be facilitated via the Xda II.

The new interSeptor XPro allows IT managers to access interSeptor remotely and view environmental log data via the Xda II’s browser interface. The package is supplied with a temperature/humidity sensor, smoke detector and water leak detector, the latter coming with a 3m leak sensor cable that is designed for running under air conditioning units or service pipes in key areas. Jacarta is also including a free annual subscription to its Alert Centre service, which provides automated voice messaging and SMS alerts, over and above the standard email alert facility.

O2’s new Xda II handset incorporates all the standard benefits of the original Xda product – such as full colour internet access, Microsoft Pocket PC tools, a personal organiser, a built in mobile phone, and games and video access – but offers more memory, a faster processor, Bluetooth and optional Wireless LAN capabilities, as well as an integrated camera and full access to the O2 Active ‘mobile playground’. Xda II also supports tri-band, facilitating global communications.

Colin Mocock, Jacarta marketing director, comments, “The launch of our interSeptor XPro package is in direct response to demand from IT managers, who require greater flexibility to do their job more effectively. interSeptor XPro’s remote environmental monitoring functionality, combined with its email and internet communication options, helps them facilitate business continuity 24x7 - from work, home or on the move.”

The package price for interSeptor XPro is £949 (excluding VAT and delivery).

The Xda II is supplied with £5/month and £1/Mb data download (min. 1 year contract). Alternative contracts including voice tariff are available.
