Improving Efficiency With Sentry Power Manager

Posted by Josh Schaap on Jul 29, 2016 2:28:41 PM


Today’s data center managers are looking for cost-effective, reliable and hassle-free ways to aggregate all of their key measurement points in an effort to maximize uptime, improve efficiency and analyze capacity. As far as data center tools go, there’s none more versatile than Sentry Power Manager, the award-winning data center management solution from Server Technology.

Here are just a few ways SPM helps with overall efficiency: 

  1. Working in conjunction with Server Technology’s POPS PDUs, Sentry Power Manager reports to data center managers on the IT device loading trends so they can make comparisons with the total facility power for PUE calculations. By analyzing per cabinet and per device power and energy usage, you begin to see the full picture of small- and large-scale efficiency.
  1. SPM allows you to schedule outlets to automatically turn off when the equipment isn’t in use. This gives you the means to power down non-essential devices during idle times such as nights and weekends, helping save as much as 40 percent in energy that would otherwise be wasted.
  1. By measuring and tracking temperature variations within – and between - racks, SPM provides you the ability to keep an eye on cooling loads. With this knowledge, you can continually verify that the cooling load reduction isn’t a threat to the reliability of your data center’s equipment.

Featuring custom views for relevant data, alarm monitoring and management along with the ability to configure Server Technology PDUs en masse, SPM is an indispensible addition to any data center. Learn more about SPM or take it for a test drive with a live demo today.
