Integrated power management for virtual environments

Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) software is certified as VMware Ready and provides all the tools you need to monitor and manage power devices in your physical and virtual environments. Seamlessly integrating into virtualisation and cloud management tools such as VMware’s vCenter and vRealize Operations, IPM extends their capabilities to include monitoring, management, and control of network connected power devices.

Unique alliance integration

Being VMware Ready means that Eaton’s IPM software seamlessly integrates into VMware virtualisation and cloud management platforms, vCenter and vRealize Operations, helping you ensure that you achieve your SLAs and maintain business continuity. The software helps IT professionals achieve peace of mind through:

  • Unified management interface – simplifies setup and reduces your learning curve by conveniently integrating power management into your vCenter and vRealize dashboards.
  • Infrastructure-aware workload management - increases system uptime while extending battery runtime and minimizing genset load by suspending non-critical machines (a.k.a. load shedding) and by triggering the live migration of virtual machines to a protected zone.
  • Dynamic power capping – keeps critical workloads running longer during a power or environmental event by limiting the physical host’s power consumption.
  • Remote agentless host shutdown – conserves your valuable time by eliminating the need for host based agents that consume resources, slow performance and require maintenance.
  • Automated disaster recovery failover – helps you avoid data loss and ensure data integrity by initiating the synchronisation of primary and backup sites before power failure.
