Eaton launches open source data centre monitoring software


The new Intelligent Power ManagerTM (IPM) Infrastructure allows operators of IT rooms and data centres to understand and monitor data centre power, environmental and physical capacity metrics, quickly and easily within the context of their IT infrastructure. Using this information, IT managers can then plan changes, anticipate challenges and make intelligent management decisions to optimise efficiency and ensure business continuity.

One of the first adopters of IPM Infrastructure is the host and telecoms operator Webaxys, which has deployed the technology at its recently opened data centre in Saint-Romain de Colbosc near Le Havre, France.

Emmanuel Assié, CEO of Webaxys, commented, ‘IPM Infrastructure has given us increased visibility of our racks, in particular on their power consumption and available capacity. The user interface is definitely intuitive, meaning both our technical teams and customers can quickly and easily check the status of their IT room.’

IPM Infrastructure will initially be available for smaller IT applications consisting of up to 10 racks, with a version for larger-scale applications due in 2017.
