Eaton Corporation has announced that the company's Intelligent Power Manager software and shutdown modules are integrated into VMware's vCenter server virtualization platform. As reported on Business Solutions, Eaton's power management software allows data center and information technology managers to monitor and manage all of their power devices across a virtual network from the vCenter server console.


The company's Intelligent Power Manager software are fully integrated into VMware's vCenter server virtualization platform.

"Eaton's power management software allows data center and information technology (IT) managers to quickly monitor and manage all of their power devices across a virtual network from the vCenter server console; eliminating the need to open multiple screens for various applications. The Eaton power tab and events tab allow quick and easy access from the same screen. Moreover, upon a prolonged power interruption, Intelligent Power Manager is designed to work with VMware's vMotion to transparently move virtual machines from the affected server to a non-affected server, promoting data integrity and increasing the likelihood of zero downtime.

"Intelligent Power Manager presents a consolidated view of the main operating parameters of all uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), which can be easily configured according to the type of UPS, location, operating status and other user-defined factors. This is a key advantage for data center and IT managers. Through color-coded displays and customized tree structure views, administrators can activate advanced functions such as automatic shutdown of unattended servers, automatic reboot and system operation scheduling of multiple devices over multiple locations."
