JouleX Energy Manager Integrates Intel's Data Center Manager to Deliver New 'Load-Adaptive Computing™' Partnership Automates Energy Management, Bringing New Levels of Efficiency to Data Centers
ATLANTA, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- JouleX, the leading innovator in enterprise energy management solutions, today announced that its JouleX Energy Manager (JEM) product is now fully integrated with the Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) and the Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager. JouleX's "load-adaptive computing™" dynamically allocates computing resources based upon system and application utilization, driving more energy efficiency and optimization across the data center.
Intel DCM provides power and thermal monitoring and management for servers, racks and groups of servers in data centers. JEM brings increased energy intelligence, visibility and automation to the physical server and virtual machine layers, helping IT and facility managers better understand and more easily manage the power consumption of their computing resources.
"Intel Data Center Manager and Intelligent Power Node Manager are the building blocks of the data center of the future," said Don Harbert, general manager, Software and Services Group, Intel. "JouleX's unique load adaptive computing uses Intel architecture in an innovative new way to help maximize processing performance per watt."
As the first network-based, "agentless," enterprise energy management system to measure the energy consumption and utilization of all network-connected devices and systems, JEM is delivering another industry first with load-adaptive computing technology. By automating the discovery, analysis and dynamic policy execution, JEM helps extend the value of Intel's DCM for large-scale data centers and IT infrastructures.
JEM's load-adaptive computing accurately measures system and application utilization and power loads while dynamically allocating computing resources as they are needed. Processes include:
- Determining targets for virtualization
- Integrating virtual layer and application-level power management with popular tools such as VMWare's vCenter
- Adding computing resources by adjusting processor speeds and virtual and/or physical server availability
- Shifting computer resources based upon energy cost and availability
- Determining how energy demand response can affect computer resources in order to drive more informed business decisions
"As data center capacity has increased, so too has the power needs to run these mega-energy consumers," said Tom Noonan, president and CEO at JouleX. "Both JouleX and Intel recognize the unique challenges data centers face in terms of energy constraints and availability. We look forward to working with an established leader to provide the necessary foundational components to truly automate energy management and drive energy efficiency in the data center."
JouleX is the leading innovator in sustainable energy management systems for the enterprise. Its flagship solution, the JouleX Energy Manager (JEM), provides the Global 2000 and government agencies with the ability to monitor, analyze and manage energy usage for all network connected devices and systems across the enterprise, including in distributed offices, data centers and facilities. Importantly, JEM works without the use of software agents, dramatically reducing installation time and removing the maintenance burden associated with similar technologies. JEM decreases energy costs by up to 60 percent while ensuring availability and provides robust reporting that enables compliance with emerging carbon monitoring requirements.
JouleX was founded in 2009 and is privately held with capital investments from Target Partners and TechOperators. The company is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, with European offices located in Munich and Kassel, Germany.
