Power Management

Posted on January 3, 2009 by Minder Singh

Finding enough power and using it efficiently requires data. That data is waiting for you.

Data centers and IT labs everywhere are approaching operational capacity limits. Power resources are increasingly constrained and the cost of energy is spiraling out of control.

You need to know how much power you are using, how much is available and where you can improve efficiency. Raritan’s Intelligent Power Solution answers these questions through its three major components:

Intelligent PDUs (iPDUs)
All of our rack PDUs and inline meters offer you accurate information with billing-grade, real-time kWh data, as well as current, voltage, active power and apparent power. Choose the model that perfectly meets your specifications from the industry’s widest selection:

  • Outlet Metered/Outlet Switched
  • Outlet Metered
  • Unit Metered/Outlet Switched
  • Unit Metered PDUs
  • Inline Meters

Additionally, our new 802.11 a/b/g/n standards-based Wi-Fi Solution wirelessly connects your  iPDUs and sensors to your remote management network. It saves the cost of Ethernet drops and the time and effort of pulling cables. Raritan builds in enterprise-grade security, including WAP2 and AES encryption.

Environment Sensors 
The ability to track humidity, temperature, contact closure, air pressure and airflow is critical to efficient power management. We can even provide you with sensors that track your IT assets. 

Power Management Software
Our Power IQ® energy management software offers vendor-agnostic centralized power monitoring with features like agentless, graceful OS shutdown, outlet control and thermal and energy analytics. It also provides kWh per rack usage and energy costs per customer, department or application, line loads for balancing capacities, rack inlet temperatures and even carbon footprint.

Together, this award-winning solution gives you the information you need to:

  • Know how much power you’re using at a moment’s notice
  • Use the power you have more efficiently
  • Improve server uptime and reliability
  • Allow higher rack densities
  • Reduce costs and effort

Download a free trial of our Power IQ Software and see how it provides the information and automated control you’ve been looking for.
