Vendor Agnostic Management

There are multiple proprietary power measurement and control protocols supported by different OEMs, which make it challenging to have a single solution for power management across ALL devices in the data center. Device42’s Energy Management Module works across different vendors. It provides accurate, real time power and thermal monitoring and management for individual servers, group of servers, racks and IT equipment such as PDUs in the data centers.

Thermal and Power Heatmaps

  • Rack Level Heat maps based on power and thermal data from individual servers
  • Heap maps on the room layout view based on capacity, power usage and thermal data
