Data Center Cooling

Posted on January 3, 2009 by Minder Singh  |  Comment (0)

We’ve made Power IQ® even better. So now you can safely increase the temperature and gracefully shut down devices to conserve energy.

It’s not enough any more just to manage the power in your data center. With increasing demand, limited resources and rising costs, the time has finally come to be more intelligent with your energy conservation efforts.

Our new features go beyond monitoring and controlling power.

Power IQ works with Raritan, APC®, Server Technology®, Knurr®, Liebert, MRV®, Rittal®, Geist and other rack PDUs to provide accurate IT device, outlet group, rack, row and data center-level energy reporting and control. Now, Power IQ also offers two new capabilities that let you more safely and easily conserve your energy usage.

Raise ambient room temperature using cooling charts to conserve energy.
Power IQ’s new cooling chart reporting enables you to display sensor readings against industry-standard psychrometric charts, using PDUs equipped with temperature and humidity sensors.

This feature helps you determine where hot spots are in your data center and how much you can raise the ambient temperature – without risking your IT infrastructure performance.

Plot temperature and humidity readings from sensors against proven psychrometric charts.

You’ll also be able to collect SNMP traps from all supported rack PDUs – including environmental sensors – and display events on a dashboard or via an email alert.

Perform agentless, graceful shutdown of your unused and underutilized Windows® and Linux®systems.

This new Power IQ feature lets you automatically power cycle IT device groups by day and time. By turning off devices when they’re idle – or shutting off unused devices completely – you can save as much as 25% – or more – on your energy consumption.

Agentless, graceful shutdown means you have the ability to:

  • Gracefully shut down OSs via standard commands
  • Perform power control of outlets
  • Automatically boot devices when outlets are turned on
  • Set device list sequences and delays
  • Agentless – does not require anything to be deployed on server
  • Leverages standard Windows and Linux shutdown commands

To see how you can manage your data center power consumption more effectively, we invite you to try a 5-device Power IQ, free. It’s yours to use for as long as you wish.
