With the help of excellent technical supports at SE, we were able to install NetBotz 750 with (13) wireless temperature/humidity sensors. The install went fine.
Now, the customer is looking for a way to see, store and visualize 30 days history of temperature and humidity. Is there a way to do this without having to use StruxureWare Data Center Expert?

Sorry but currently it is not possible to have 30 days of data storage on a NetBotz 750. I believe the longest storage is 96 hours. You need DCE to retain data for that length of time. An enhancement request could be added for this but anything not already in planning would take a bit of time to even be considered. The only timely option is DCE.

Good Morning Steven, I am still learning. When you say "You need DCE to retain data...," do I need to get AP9465?

It all depends on your needs. If you only have a single 750 and don't need to monitor anything else (and assuming you have VMWare), you can use the free 5 node version of StruxureWare:
You may want to add an additional drive and you can potentially save data for years. Please note that image capture is not yet supported but will be available once version 5.2 is released (hopefully) later this summer.
Getting a hardware server such as the AP9465 or activating the VM option would be necessary if you wanted that system to monitor more devices. Additional licenses may also be required again, depending on how many devices you want to monitor.
