Updated Eaton Intelligent Power Manager VMware Ready, Enhances Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity for VMware Users
The Intelligent Power Manager software achievement of VMware Ready™ certification, VMware’s highest level of endorsement, followed a detailed validation process. The software can be found on the VMware Solution Exchange, a single destination site for compatible VMware applications and cloud infrastructure products.
“Eaton Intelligent Power Manager software’s VMware Ready™ qualification signifies to customers that it has met specific VMware integration and interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure, which will speed time to value within customer environments.” said Sheryl Sage, director, Alliance Programs, VMware.
“Keeping critical workloads operational and preventing data corruption are a data center’s top priorities during power outages,” said Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager, Eaton Distributed Power Quality Division. “Eaton’s extensive and integrated power management capabilities with VMware’s vCenter platform have enabled us to usher in a new era of control software, mission critical data preservation and integrity, and business continuity.”
Traditionally, when a virtualized data center loses power, technicians must manually initiate the recovery process in a specific sequence, often in the face of intense time pressure. Eaton’s latest version of Intelligent Power Manager software increases productivity and response time by identifying the power failure immediately, initiating a backup site, and triggering VMware Site Recovery Manager’s disaster recovery failover and planned migration processes.
The VMware Site Recovery Manager capability improves upon Intelligent Power Manager’s existing VMware integration, which enables IT personnel to view, monitor and administer not only physical and virtual servers, but also uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), power distribution units (PDUs) and other power devices, through VMware’s vCenter Server platform.
