Keep Usage in Control:
Can you tell your customers how much power they are using? What power capacity is available? Are you being asked to ensure power up-time and reliability?
Data centers and IT labs everywhere are approaching operational capacity limits. Power resources are increasingly constrained, and the cost of energy is spiraling out of control. You need to know how much power you are using, how much is available and where you can improve efficiency. As budgets are decreasing, having a tool to help answer these questions and keep your power usage in control is critical.

Effective delivery of services and resources demands that you maintain the best possible up-time while transitioning from old to new, whether replacing technology or simply improving upon it.

While not all IT shops are set up in state-of-the-art fortresses, adhering to data center environmental standards is essential to creating ideal conditions.
