Eaton launched Intelligent Power Manager software version 1.60 today, which the company says now has full integration with the Nutanix Acropolis hyperconverged infrastructure platform, helping business continuity and mission critical data protection during power-related events.
Through the integration, Nutanix Acropolis users such as IT professionals and data center managers can now use Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) software, the power management company says.
“IT and data center professionals increasingly look to hyperconverged infrastructure as an opportunity to lower costs and consolidate IT resources,” said Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager of Distributed Power Solutions at Eaton. “By integrating our IPM software with Acropolis, users gain enhanced control of power infrastructure for Nutanix deployments while protecting essential data from unplanned incidents.”
Through integration with Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software, Acropolis users can now provide remote shutdown capabilities for the Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor during unforeseen power events to avoid a loss of data or its integrity, according to Eaton.
Eaton is a Nutanix Technology Alliance partner and the first power management provider to achieve Nutanix Ready validation, which certifies interoperability with Nutanix architecture.
The latest version of Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software also has integration with VMware vSAN hyper-converged infrastructure software as well as the Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization platform, Eaton points out. “These integrations enable operators in vSAN environments to efficiently and effectively manage their power infrastructure as part of their vSAN deployments or Hyper-V hypervisors.”
Eaton sells power management products to customers in more than 175 countries and had $20.4 billion in sales last year.
