REAL POWER MANAGEMENT ENSURES ALWAYS-ON AVAILABILITY
As a finite and expensive resource, understanding power availability and consumption patterns are critical for truly intelligent data center capacity planning and cost containment. To ensure business-critical availability and increased performance within the constraints of an existing data center infrastructure and budget, you must monitor power availability by actively managing its consumption and peak demand.
Sentilla enables software based, non-intrusive, power management through the use of its patent-pending virtual meters. Using this unique technology, you can capture performance and consumption metrics across the entire data center infrastructure and then correlate specific workloads to their specific energy consumption. By doing so, you can quickly derive the accurate cost, capacity, and utilization metrics for every application in your data center.
The Sentilla DCPM platform determines the full load power consumption and demand metrics of your systems without the use of physical meters, smart PDUs, or software agents. Data is captured and analyzed through a variety of protocols that integrate directly with existing Enterprise Management and Building Management systems, as well as baseband controllers on newer servers.
Sentilla can combine physical and virtual meter readings with the power distribution tree to deduce the full energy consumption of each branch, resulting in full coverage from switchgear to server.
