RENO, Nev., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Server Technology, Inc., the global leader for Power Distribution Unit and Power Management Solutions, today introduced the latest update to the Sentry Power Manager (SPM) solution, version 4.3. "This new version will provide a whole new level of data, information and features to help data center professionals manage their mission critical operations," said Brandon Ewing, president of Server Technology. "Through our customer-driven innovation process and superior engineering, we continue to expand the capabilities of our Sentry Power Manager solution. When used in combination with our cabinet power distribution units, SPM is the most comprehensive solution available today to measure, monitor and trend power and environmental information in your data center - right at the device level," said Ewing.

The latest version of SPM supports Server Technology's patented Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPS™) devices as well as providing support for third-party power distribution units (PDUs), including APC, Geist and Raritan. Server Technology's revolutionary PIPS™ devices accurately monitor the power in-feed information, providing an extremely cost-effective and accurate alternative to complex branch circuit monitoring at the Remote Power Panel (RPP).

"We put a lot of new features and functionality in this version," said Calvin Nicholson, senior director of software and strategic alliances. "The most important new features are the support of our PIPS product, the PUE reporting availability, the syslog support and the ability to schedule outlet control, device discovery and database maintenance options," said Nicholson.

In addition to the PUE reports, this new version of SPM provides reports for trending power/load per location, cabinet, groups, clusters, and circuits. New reporting for circuit summary, subtotal reports for input load and power and power summary reports are included, as well as the option of an increased number of email alert addresses.
