control capabilities to easily maintain and configure your PDUs.
Rack Power Manager also provides state-of-the-art monitoring
capabilities that enable intelligent server grouping across disparate
racks. It also enables custom reporting, scheduled regular
reports and the ability to set real-time threshold alerts to give
you the highest quality information on your data center’s power
infrastructure and so you can truly leverage the investment in PDUs.
Measure and Track Power Costs – The Rack Power Manager
calculates and compares cost across multiple levels (rack,
row, data centers or companies) to track cost over a period of
time and also to measure the impact of any consolidation or
expansion projects.
Review Historical Capacity and Consumption Reports – Plan
for future expansion or new facilities more accurately based on
real historical data rather than faceplate ratings or best-guess
scenarios which result in overbuilding and lead to inefficiencies.
Protect Against Downtime – Help get a total reading on power
usage for the data center and set a maximum threshold of
power usage. Set alerts to know when the threshold is reached
or exceeded and allow time to make changes before there are
actual problems.
Accurately Plan – Help IT know what electrical infrastructure to
build into a new location or disaster recovery site. The design
can be based on actual historical data rather than faceplate
ratings or best-guess scenarios which result in overbuilding and
lead to hard-to-correct inefficiencies.
