Video/Picture log your remote datacenters

Hi folks, here’s a common thing that I love to do. You see a lot of administrators have remote data centers. They fly out and set them up, they document everything and then fly back to their office.

After that they manage everything remotely. Well sometimes you might have forgotten something, and you realize you need to fly back. Here’s an easy fix for this – record your visit! You can take a camcorder or camera with you to take pictures of your setup and then store those files with your other documentation such as visio diagrams.

What this does is allows you to see into your data center without having to fly back. Another common thing today is to leave a web cam in the data center room so you can watch it remotely to see things.

-Cheers, RP
