Kinvergent Power - Always On

Virtualization, cloud computing, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), software defined networking (SDN), and (hyper-)converged infrastructures (CI) are some of the rapidly evolving technologies redefining the importance of 100% uptime and automated failover in the event of an unplanned service interruption.

These technologies offer improved reliability, increased efficiency and power/cooling savings. Taking advantage of these benefits requires a thoughtful, long-term power strategy.

“Downtime costs a huge amount of money, measured in lost sales and direct costs to remediate problems. But downtime also carries significant indirect costs such as lost brand reputation, weakened competitive position and lower customer confidence. Rely on Kinvergent to help you buttress your critical infrastructure components from unplanned downtime.”

Have you virtualized your power?

In virtual environments, more services run on less hardware. That means keeping that hardware up and running is vital. Extend the runtime of your network and protect critical equipment. Eaton’s Intelligent Power Management (IPM) Software Suite integrates seamlessly with the major virtual platforms from VMware, Citrix, and others, enabling you to view and manage your entire power system from your current dashboard. It also triggers live migration and in the event of an extended power outage will gracefully shutdown virtual machines and hosts in a cluster. IPM is agentless which saves server resources and administrators valuable time.
