Power Assure and RagingWire Data Centers will conduct a live demonstration of Power Assure’s Software Defined Power Solution at the 2013 Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas next week.
Power Assure will show application load resource matching and dynamic application load shifting between RagingWire’s datacenters in Sacramento, Calif., and Ashburn, Va,, some 2,350 miles apart, with zero impact on users or application service levels.
The demonstration will show how, once configured with the service level and other application requirements, Software Defined Power continuously and automatically optimizes resource levels, both within and between data centers. Integral to its design, Software Defined Power enables multiple opportunities to realize power cost savings, including power cost arbitration between Power Assure and RagingWire sites, avoidance of peak rates, the ability to participate in utility demand response programs, and avoidance of excess demand charges. Additionally, Software Defined Power includes verification features that continuously test disaster recovery procedures.
