Remote Hardware Monitoring
Our automated event management system, receives hardware notifications from infrastructure devices.
Automated Event Management System
Curvature is recognized as the global top performer for independent support for servers and storage within the data center. Our maintenance solutions provide comprehensive break/fix support for a wide variety of machine platforms
built by multiple manufacturers.
Remote Hardware Monitoring, Curvature’s automated event management system, receives hardware notifications from infrastructure devices. These notifications are processed and filtered into meaningful, “Service Required” tickets. These automatically generated tickets initiate the preparation and dispatch of a field engineer.
Remote Hardware Monitoring obtains service information (error code, part number, device location) from the machine’s hardware layer, and performs predictive analysis to determine cause of failure. This approach results in more first-time fixes. Remote Hardware Monitoring is a hardware-layer monitoring tool only, and as such, has no access to customer data.
