Eaton Corporation recently introduced its Intelligent Power Software Suite, a product that incorporates the company’s power management, monitoring, and protection technologies. IT managers can manage power devices for traditional IT infrastructure or in a virtualized environment.
Eaton introduces next generation technology to maximize uptime with Intelligent Power software suite.
The software is a combination of Intelligent Power manager, which provides extensive monitoring and management of power devices across an IT network, and Intelligent Power Protector, which conducts a safe and controlled shutdown of critical servers or virtual machines during extended power outages.
With Intelligent Power Manager supervisory software, a range of power and environmental devices are controlled through a single, web-based interface. The software is compatible with network-enabled power devices, including Eaton and third-party uninterruptable power systems (UPSs), environmental sensors, and power distribution units.
Intelligent Power Manager is integrated with VMware’s vCenter, which helps manage power in a virtualized environment through the vCenter dashboard. The software integrates with vMotion, which transparently moves applications from a server affected by a power interruption to a non-affected server on the network, maintaining data integrity without downtime.
In order to protect IT systems when the power fails for longer than the UPS’s available battery runtime, Intelligent Power Protector software manages the Eaton UPSs to ensure that connected devices save the work in progress and maintain data integrity. Its UI shows detailed information about connected servers and UPSs through USB, serial, or network communication. The software has a clear, easy to use, multilingual interface available on any computer with a web browser.
The multi-platform Intelligent Power Management suite is available at no charge for up to 10 IP addresses. The Intelligent Power Protector is free.
