CHICAGO, June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- iTRACS Corporation, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class Data Center Infrastructure Management solutions that drive efficiency, performance, and strategic value, today announced iTRACS PowerEye™, a best-practices strategy for reducing energy consumption and costs in the data center.
iTRACS PowerEye™ is an integrated power management strategy that offers end-to-end visibility and management of the entire power chain inclusive of all interdependencies, across both IT and core infrastructure (facilities) assets. iTRACS PowerEye™ is empowered by interactive 3D visualization to help IT executives manage and optimize their physical assets in a holistic, navigable 3D environment. With iTRACS PowerEye™, data centers can calculate the total power efficiency across the entire IT ecosystem and then take steps to optimize it. Not just IT assets, or facilities assets, but all assets that draw electricity.
Managing power, not just monitoring it
Traditionally, power management in the data center has been limited to "monitoring" and separated into "silos." The IT team was responsible for the IT assets inside the cabinets, and the facilities team was responsible for the core infrastructure that supported those cabinets. The IT manager never saw the electricity bill. Worse yet, energy monitoring simply indicated was there an issue – not how to resolve it.
Not any longer.
"Today energy efficiency is a corporate mandate," said Elizabeth Given, President and CEO of iTRACS. "And with iTRACS PowerEye™, it has graduated from simple monitoring to proactive managing. IT and facilities managers can collaboratively manage power circuits through the entire physical infrastructure– from the utility on the street to every server in every cabinet – as a holistic power chain. They can consolidate energy-guzzling assets and conduct power-saving technology refreshes with speed and efficiency. The corresponding savings in energy costs can be dramatic."
Actionable information that drives results
"iTRACS PowerEye™ offers an actionable roadmap for improving energy efficiency," said Dan Fry, iTRACS Vice President of Converged Solutions. "It tells the IT team where energy efficiency can be achieved and how to achieve it with detailed implementation Work Orders and automated step-by-step workflows. The days of taping handwritten notes to server cabinets are over."
