Data Centre Power Management

"Server Technology gives me the solutions we need to continually monitor power usage – for uptime, for efficiency and for green initiatives.” –Data Centre IT Director

You need to measure and monitor your power usage in your server room. It's the first step to knowing what you need to do to improve data centre power efficiency, reduce data centre downtime and power costs and improve your company’s green IT. As the old saying goes - you can't manage or control what you're not measuring.

Monitoring and reporting on data centre energy consumption has become expected in today’s energy conscious world and we have the most robust, affordable and comprehensive data centre power products (PDUs) and solutions in the market today.

Server Technology's products include our Intelligent cabinet power distribution units (PDUs) and Sentry Power Manager (SPM) power monitoring, management and trending software. This combination provides a tightly-integrated system for rack-level data centre power distribution and data centre power monitoring and management.

Know Everything about your Data Centre Power

Uptime. Uptime. Uptime. Server Technology helps me improve it.” -Data Centre Manager

Server Technology’s Sentry Power Manager (SPM) software offers a single pane-of-glass solution to monitor, trend, and report the most accurate power information on your entire network infrastructure of rack mount data centre PDUs.

You can monitor your data centre’s rack-level power information, store it, trend it and use it to make critical decisions about your facility. SPM is your single source for measuring, monitoring, and controlling all the PDUs and attached environmental probes on your network. You’ll receive alerts and alarms when conditions exceed defined thresholds. SPM power monitoring solution is the easiest to use, most affordable power management tool available to monitor power in your data center, making it simple to comply with today’s complex energy regulatory environment.

Intelligent PDUs: just what you need to help with your data centre power management challenges

If you choose an intelligent PDU solution (Smart, Switched, or Switched POPS) you are on your way to a more efficient, reliable and easy to manage facility. If you are managing multiple cabinets, possibly across multiple facilities, you could be challenged with gathering and storing all the data, as well as remote management of PDUs in your other data centres. Monitoring all your PDUs individually is impossible, especially if you have dozens of PDUs with hundreds of power sensing outlets. On top of having to log in to each one separately to get your power measurements or power metering you now have a huge quantity of power and environmental data being measured in real-time and not being stored. Without a database to collect, trend, and report on all your data, you can't make the critical decisions about your facility. It's likely that time and manpower is being wasted trying to globally monitor your data center manually, or as often happens, it's likely that you're not taking advantage of the global power monitoring that is available to you.

About Sentry Power Manager (SPM)

SPM is a software package capable of monitoring and managing power consumption of multiple Sentry PDU devices in IP-based enterprise networks. SPM provides a global view of all Sentry PDUs with the ability to view devices based on their temperature, humidity, current and device status. Quickly drill down from global view to your facility maps to an individual PDU. From there, you have access to the features and functions of that PDU.

Manage and monitor all user-set alarm conditions on your entire network. Control and monitor individual device power on POPS PDUs. Group and cluster outlets for remote reboot, power measurement information across a single PDU, a linked PDU, or across the entire network. SPM stores all the power and environmental data retrieved by all your PDUs. SPM uses this information to provide reporting and trending information for display within SPM or integrated using an API with your existing Building Management System (BMS) or other system. SPM allows measurement of power consumption and capacity planning. Auto-discover all your PDUs connected to your IP network. View Logs for user access, discovery, user actions, and alarms. Multiple user levels and permissions including support for LDAP.

Green IT for Data Centres: Achieve an Energy Efficient Data Centre

Green IT is a hot topic for data centre professionals. Not only for the environmental reasons that you may expect, but for the economic benefits they see by incorporating Green IT in their data centres. Going "green" means measuring, analyzing and controlling power usage to enable effective capacity planning along with aptitude to make change for decreased usage - all leading to improved data centre energy efficiency, a controlled data centre carbon footprint and better overall company ROI.

Explore Server Technology's PDUs and find the right solution for your company.

What can be done to have a more energy efficient data center and incorporate Green data centre IT into your company?
  • Measure power usage
  • Measure power usage effectiveness (PUE)
  • Make adjustments based on the power monitoring information to reduce energy usage and CO2 output

Server Technology's power management solution for a green data center combines our intelligent cabinet Power Distribution Units (PDUs) with SPM rack level power management software for monitoring, measuring and trending your power. This solution can help you improve your data centre energy efficiency, save money and drive your data centre green IT forward.
