Eaton integration with NetApp platforms
Eaton collaborates with NetApp to provide power infrastructure solutions for NetApp´s platforms and ensure high uptime, data integrity and business continuity on power and environmental issues. Eaton solutions for NetApp include IT racks, server class uninterruptible power systems (UPS), intelligent rack power distribution units (PDU), as well as virtualisation and cloud-ready power management software.
A NetApp´s Alliance Partner Program member, Eaton also partners with Cisco, VMWare, Citrix, Microsoft and RedHat to ensure that all elements of NetApp´s solutions are properly powered and customers´ business is fully protected from costly consequences of power and environmental issues.
Eaton integration with NetApp and virtualisation platforms offers IT and data centre managers an opportunity to properly control and manage power as an essential part of any converged infrastructure solution:
- Monitor and manage power devices from a virtualisation dashboard
- Initiate disaster recovery policies including data replication, load shedding, live migration of virtual machines to a backup site or cloud or graceful shutdown of virtual machines on power and environmental events
- Keep critical workloads running longer during a power outage by limiting Cisco´s UCS server power consumption
- Manage FAS power setting when combined with NetApp ONTAP storage operating system
