EATON’S Newly Enhanced Intelligent Power Management Software Increases Virtual Server Uptime Within Microsoft’s SCVMM & Live Migration

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation has launched a new version of its Intelligent Power® Manager software that is fully compatible with Microsoft’s System Centre Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM™), including the Live Migration virtualisation solution. Intelligent Power Manager’s remote monitoring capabilities reduce data centre infrastructure and operating costs while simplifying management, minimising response time and substantially increasing uptime.

Eaton’s comprehensive power management software monitors and manages all the power devices on a network and conducts a graceful shutdown of virtual machines and servers during an extended power outage. With Eaton’s new version of its Intelligent Power Manager software, Live Migration users now have better management and control of power devices supporting virtual machines. Upon a prolonged power interruption, the new software is designed to trigger Live Migration to transparently move virtual machines from the affected server to a non-affected server, providing continual uptime and data integrity.

“The centralised management of the physical and virtual IT infrastructure and increased server utilisation require data centre managers to have a holistic view of their IT operations,” said Hervé Tardy, senior vice president and general manager, Eaton’s Distributed Power Quality Division. “Our enhanced Intelligent Power Manager software gives users the ability to comprehensively and remotely manage and monitor their power devices and virtual infrastructure seamlessly within Microsoft’s SCVMM and Live Migration.”

Through the software’s colour-coded displays and customised tree structure views, administrators can activate important functions such as graceful shutdown of servers experiencing a power outage, automatic reboot and scheduling of multiple power devices across the network. In addition, Intelligent Power Manager can:

• Monitor and manage multiple uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), Eaton ePDU®
products, as well as environmental sensors across the network from a single interface
• Instantly access critical information, such as UPS battery condition, load levels and
battery runtime
• Conduct auto discoveries that provide fast installation by automatically detecting
devices on the network
• Perform mass-upgrades of firmware that reduces network management card setup and maintenance time
• Quickly track equipment moves, adds and changes
