Your company and / or data center needs to be efficient with power and take action in case of problem. In other words, knowing your data center power consumption is just as important as maintaining uptime. So, for example, you should be able to monitor power usage in your server room. That way, you can avoid your PDU’s to become overloaded. To do this, Sunbird’s Power IQ DCIM software uses SNMP* to bring together vital info on the electrical consumption of your machines and sensors.
To sum up, avoid any problem-related installation downtime and maximize the use of your infrastructure by monitoring your systems and receiving alerts in good time. A DCIM system allows you to boost efficiency and protects you against the risk of downtimes and resulting financial losses.
*Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) : set of protocols for network management and monitoring.
The software Power IQ gives you a complete overview of the total energy consuming equipment you own. Indeed, it will collect all the power usage data in every part of your data center so that you get a real-time view of your PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness). So, it will help you in your way to getting a green data center.
In addition, all this energy efficiency data is available anywhere in complete security from any browser.
