Eaton Corporation has released the latest version of its Intelligent Power Manager software .
The update is designed to provide automatic virtual machine synchronization and initiation of a backup site, also known as recovery failover, to avoid data loss and reduce downtime during power outages when shutting down servers is unavoidable.
Eaton is the first power management company to offer these capabilities within the VMware platform and to achieve VMware Ready certification.
The software can be found on the VMware Solution Exchange, a single destination site for compatible VMware applications and cloud infrastructure products.
Traditionally, when a virtualized data center loses power, technicians must manually initiate the recovery process in a specific sequence. Eaton’s latest version of software identifies the power failure “immediately,” initiating a backup site, and triggering VMware Site Recovery Manager’s disaster recovery failover and planned migration processes.
