Eaton's Latest IT Power Management Software Aligns with Latest Virtualization Platforms & Converged Infrastructure Solutions
Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software version 1.4 helps IT managers regulate power consumption and strengthen business continuity
Power management company Eaton has announced the launch of its Intelligent Power Manager™software version 1.4, building on a five-year history of success in developing industry-leading power management solutions that are compatible with most virtualization platforms. Intelligent Power Manager software version 1.4 strengthens Eaton’s collaboration with Cisco Unified Computing System™ server management, which allows information technology (IT) managers to set power consumption limits to each server for extended battery runtime during a power event.
Further advancing flexibility for small-to-medium data centers and network closet environments, the latest Intelligent Power Manager software now integrates with the VMware® vSphere® 5.5 virtualization platform. With the recent updates, Intelligent Power Manager software is also the first and only power management software to integrate directly with the latest VMware vSphere Web Client.
The latest Intelligent Power Manager software solution supports Eaton’s ePDU® third-generation (G3) platform, its newest portfolio of rack power distribution units. With Intelligent Power Manager software, network connected ePDU G3 models offer advanced capabilities that allow users to monitor multiple ePDUs through platforms like VMware vCenter Server™.
This past year, Eaton and CA Technologies announced a collaborative agreement to deliver infrastructure management solutions for data centers. With the latest enhancement, Intelligent Power Manager software includes a menu option that enables users to conveniently launch CA Technologies’ Nimsoft® Remote Management Platform. While many users monitor the data center through Nimsoft, they often manage their networks within the VMware vCenter dashboard. With Intelligent Power Manager software’s seamless integration as a tab within vCenter, the Nimsoft menu option is one more way for Eaton to provide a more efficient view of IT operations.
