Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager Software enables you to:
  • Remotely monitor and manage multiple devices across your network from a single interface.
  • Suspend non-critical virtual machines, consolidate critical virtual machines and shut down unused servers to extend battery runtime
  • Initiate a virtual machine move or graceful shutdown in the event of an extended outage
  • Automate disaster avoidance with a planned migration application, such as VMware Site Recovery Manager and Microsoft Live Migration
  • Integrate with VMware’s vRealize Operations Manager using Eaton’s Infrastructure Management Pack to manage health, risk and efficiency of power and environmental devices
  • Set server power consumption limits for extended battery runtime with UCS management software
  • See how IPM integrates into leading IT technology platforms

One licensed node is defined as a UPS, rack PDU or IPM instance.
