Power solutions for EMC VSPEX

Power protection is so essential to the safe operation of converged architectures, such as EMC VSPEX, that is should be regarded as the fifth element of a complete converged infrastructure solution, alongside servers, storage, networking and software. A power infrastructure system from Eaton – consisting of an intelligent UPS, an appropriate power distribution system, and comprehensive power management software – ensures data integrity, business continuity and resilience. Eaton´s solution extends network runtime, protects critical IT equipment and allows you to view and manage your entire power system from your existing virtualisation dashboard.

  • Integration/Control – Eaton’s Intelligent Power® Manager software uses a simple dashboard display that seamlessly integrates into the VMware´s vCentre, Citrix´s XenCentre and Microsoft´s SCVMM. This added functionality allows you to easily automate the ability to move, consolidate or suspend virtual machines (VM) in the event of a power disruption. If you can’t move your VMs to a safe place, we offer remote agentless shutdown to gracefully bring down your system and avoid data corruption.
  • Scalable/Flexible Designs – Power requirements are unique to the locations they reside and constantly change with new business requirements. At Eaton, we anticipate these changes, designing platforms that scale for hyper growth but incorporate well into existing IT environments.
  • Partnerships/Support – Eaton collaborates with EMC, Cisco, VMware, Citrix, Microsoft to offer a physical and virtual infrastructure that seamlessly integrates into the VSPEX environment. We are committed to these ongoing partnerships so that we can offer our customers many different integration points within the server, storage and networking layers. Our service and support organisations have global reach and the capability to deliver service 24/7, when and where you need it.
