ATLANTA, Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- JouleX, the leading innovator in enterprise energy management systems for data centers, distributed office environments, and facilities, today announced a significant  number of new features and functionality with the availability of its newest version of JouleX Energy Manager (JEM) product suite.

The new enhancements include a number of industry "firsts." These enhancements make JEM the first enterprise energy management solution to integrate with and support all the largest and latest power management networking vendors including Cisco® EnergyWise, Intel® Data Center Manager and VMware®. JEM will offer full support for the latest Cisco EnergyWise management functions, including EnergyWise-specific reporting. Additionally, enhanced support has been added for advanced power control of servers from Hewlett-Packard®, Dell® and IBM®.

Other highlights of JEM's expanded capabilities include:

  • New device control features allowing for integrated power capping, central processing unit (CPU) performance leveling (for Windows, VMware, Linux), and support for VMware vCenter, and Distributed Power Management (DPM).

  • More granular control using power, temperature and utilization metrics to migrate virtual machines and optimize server performance and energy consumption using VMware vMotion.

  • Detailed analytics and reporting for sustainable procurement (analysis of device models for energy efficiency, for device replacement planning, and for measuring energy and carbon savings from virtualization projects).

  • Virtualization and utilization reporting to identify under- and over-utilized devices. This identifies candidates for upgrading, retiring, and virtualizing.

  • Additional device support for rack and floor power distribution units (PDUs) as well as computer room air conditioning (CRAC) and uninterruptable power supply (UPSs).

"We continue to accelerate our technology development in terms of creating actionable energy intelligence for our customers to make quicker decisions, optimize their existing infrastructure, and reduce their operating expenses," said Tom Noonan, president and CEO at JouleX.

Additional features include temperature support, a new configuration wizard that guides users through installation, and enhanced help and diagnostic elements.
