Data Centers face considerable challenges in seamless propagation of telemetry data and executing control functions for performing various management functions. These functions are related to power capping, cooling, reliability, predictability, survivability, and adaptability control. In a conventional approach, distributed sense-data in a server node is collected through wired management interconnects and LAN. We present an alternative approach for this unique data center environment using wireless sensor network to improve data-collection efficiency and real-time delivery. We survey 2-tier sense data collection methodology using narrow-channel wireless interconnects for server management and RACK-level wireless sensor network for data center management.
