Power management company Eaton has launched its Intelligent Power Manager™ (IPM) software version 1.6 in the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region.
The new version of the software offers full integration with the Nutanix Acropolis hyperconverged infrastructure platform. Through the integration, users of Nutanix Acropolis, including information technology (IT) professionals and data center managers, can now leverage Eaton’s IPM software to provide graceful shutdown of the Nutanix infrastructure, enhancing business continuity and protecting mission critical data during power-related events.
“IT professionals increasingly look to hyperconverged infrastructure as an opportunity to lower costs and increase availability for Edge IT deployments,” said Rory Higgins, Product Manager Data Center Automation, Eaton. ”Nutanix’s latest single node and upcoming 2-node cluster options for the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud offering, when paired with Eaton’s IPM software combined with its industry leading 93PS or 9PX UPSs and G3 rack PDUs provide the ideal business continuity solution for protecting business critical Edge IT deployments in remote offices or storefronts by helping remote administrators easily integrate software defined power management into their Acropolis environment.”
Nutanix Acropolis combines feature-rich software-defined storage with built-in virtualization in a turnkey hyperconverged infrastructure solution. Through integration with Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software, Acropolis users can now provide remote shutdown capabilities for the Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV) during unforeseen power events without worrying about loss or integrity of data.
In addition to integration with Nutanix Acropolis, the latest version of Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software features integration with VMware® vSAN hyper-converged infrastructure software as well as the Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization platform. These integrations enable operators in vSAN environments to efficiently and effectively manage their power infrastructure as part of their vSAN deployments or Hyper-V hypervisors.
