Automating Power Management in Data Centers

Patrick Avery

Power management solutions provider Power Assure aims to specifically address the need for automating power management in data centers. In an interview with IT Business Edge contributor Arthur Cole, Clemens Pfeiffer, chief technology officer of Power Assure, says its software is a dynamic solution that takes the "minimal intrusion" approach.


"By integrating with a specific application management environment, Power Assure complements existing investments and leverages maintenance procedures of these environments to minimize its own maintenance. We don't require customers to replace their management systems: no forklift upgrades, no client software on their servers."


Pfeiffer says Power Assure takes a holistic approach and integrates with the customer's existing systems - cooling, network, power and server equipment - to allow for an unprecedented level of flexibility when configuring the operating processes.
