Eaton launched version 1.5 of its Intelligent Power Manager software, which is pre-configured to operate with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager.
Intelligent Power Manager software is designed to synchronize virtual machines (VMs) and automatically initiate the execution of a recovery plan to avoid data loss and reduce downtime during a power event. Version 1.5 allows data center and IT managers to organize and prioritize groups of VMs and to set specific times for VMs to shut down during a power event. The software is engineered to keep critical applications up-and-running while shutting down non-essential machines. Intelligent Power Manager software installs into several virtual management systems and can read attributes from both power equipment and environmental data such as temperature and humidity.
Eaton is an Elite level member of the VMware Technology Alliance Partner program, and its Intelligent Power Manager software is certified VMware Ready.
Intelligent Power Manager software version 1.5 is available in a basic package that is free for up to 10 nodes, in addition to an advanced platform that offers up to 100 nodes for an optimized power monitoring and management system.
