Raritan's data centre energy management software gets a new dashboard with forecasting tools and gauges to track and visualize key energy metrics

10 May 2011 Santa Clara - Raritan has unveiled a new configurable dashboard with new tools and gauges for Power IQ energy management software, so that data centre managers can easily see information most important to them - whether it's energy usage information of a specific server rack, temperature readings from the cold aisle, or a forecast on how much energy is required to support operations in data centres across the world.

The Power IQ energy dashboard displays complex information in easy-to-view reports, charts, thermal graphs, and maps. The new capacity forecast chart, for example, provides "days of supply" information and helps determine the available power at any level - data centre, floor, room, row or rack. Power IQ also provides real-time information on energy usage, energy costs, carbon footprint, and thermal factors.

"Power IQ 3.0's tools empower a much larger group of users to view and access key data center information in useful ways", stated James Cerwinski, Senior Manager, Raritan Power Management Business. "The dashboard can be configured differently for each user's custom reporting needs. We want customers to be able to customize their dashboard, so that they can easily access the information they want when they want. Some customers will display the dashboard on very large screens where they work, creating a NOC area; or on lobby screens for customers to see - in an effort to create data center energy awareness."

Key dashboard features in Power IQ 3.0 include: configurable layout and sizing; trend and forecast charts; health and event status; and, slide show mode with real-time updates. Video, images and Weather Service widgets also can now be embedded in the dashboard.

Power IQ energy management software is a comprehensive solution to obtain the most out of a data centre's existing power supply and infrastructure. Enterprise-wide data collection at the device level enables Power IQ's analytics to calculate and chart active power, energy consumption, cost, and carbon footprint for servers and other IT devices. Easy-to-configure graphs and reports depict a wealth of information, such as which devices are consuming the most energy, whether power conservation efforts are working, and if there are hot spots or over-cooled areas. Power IQ collects a wide range of energy data – amps, volts, PF, watts, kWh, temperature, humidity - from multi-vendor rack PDUs, environment sensors, UPSs, branch circuits and other data collectors.

Available as a VMware-ready virtual appliance, Power IQ is easy to install and use. Within minutes of installation, useful power information, from SNMP- and Web Services-enabled servers and devices, is delivered to Power IQ's intuitive Web-based dashboard, which can be accessed easily from anywhere, even from iPhones and iPads. Power IQ's simple agent-less approach enables graceful shut downs and start ups of servers connected to any rack PDU, without needing to load additional software on target servers.
