RENO, Nev., March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Server Technology, experts in producing the highest quality rack mount data center power distribution units and power monitoring solutions, announced today the launch of its new Sentry Power System at DataCenterDynamics (DCD) NYC. Sentry Power System tightly integrates Server Technology's Sentry family of cabinet power distribution units (PDUs) with Sentry Power Manager (SPM) software, through Server Tech's exclusive SNAP technology to create a single system of power. Server Technology will be demonstrating its Sentry Power System at the DCD NYC show today at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, New York.
"We are recognized as the leader in delivering the world's most reliable data center rack-based power and have consistently looked for innovative ways to increase the intelligence of our devices, while at the same time simplify the management associated with typical intelligent PDU deployments," said Mark Harris, vice president of marketing at Server Technology. "Our new Sentry Power System with SNAP technology is in direct response to these challenges and provides our customers the industry's only global structured approach to data center PDU management. Sentry Power System enables true "Plug & Play" functionality and the ability to easily manage hundreds or thousands of PDUs across the enterprise from a single management console. Our customers can take a PDU out of the box, plug it in to the network and the system will auto discover and configure the unit. Immediately, they'll start receiving power and environmental information and reports and trends. The customer gets value right away," said Harris.
Server Technology's SNAP is based upon XML over SSL technology and is included in Sentry CDU hardware and SPM software. SPM software with SNAP provides true "Plug and Play" simple PDU auto discovery, auto configuration, hierarchical change management and auto firmware updates across the network along with all of the award winning capabilities found in previous versions of SPM including power control and state management, advanced reporting and trending, and power and environmental alarming.
"We listen to our customers very closely. After being the leader for over 25 years, it's very clear that the rack-level PDU business is much more demanding than mere sheet metal and wires. The modern data center power delivery function is about intelligence, reliability and simplicity. We constantly challenge ourselves to deliver increasing value for our customers with unique capabilities. With Sentry Power System, our customers now have at their fingertips the industry's most complete rack-level power management solution," said Harris.
The Sentry Power System featuring SNAP is included in all shipped products today and is delivered as two components: SPM version 5.1 software/management application and Sentry CDUs, the cabinet hardware power distribution units, with firmware version 6.1d.
