RENO, Nev., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Server Technology, experts in producing the highest quality rack mount power distribution units and power monitoring solutions, announced today that all of its intelligent rack mount power distribution units (PDUs) are now Cisco EnergyWise™ certified and interoperable with Cisco's EnergyWise client technology. Server Technology's intelligent PDUs, when combined with a Cisco network, allow device power to be accurately monitored, analyzed and controlled to optimize energy consumption and reduce total cost of ownership by conserving energy at the data center rack level. Server Technology's PDUs are the first PDUs to pass Interoperability Verification Testing (IVT), Cisco's process to ensure compatibility with Cisco technology.
"It's a seamless way to capture power information using your existing Cisco infrastructure, providing an easy and low-cost power monitoring solution that is simple to implement," said Calvin Nicholson, senior director of software and firmware development at Server Technology. "When you combine Cisco EnergyWise with Server Technology's intelligent PDUs, it's easy to monitor the power consumption of every piece of equipment within each rack in the data center using the existing network infrastructure. We're the only company that can report both the outlet information, through our Per Outlet Power Sensing (POPS™) as well as the inlet information, through our Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPS) feature – all providing the most granular and accurate power consumption information," added Nicholson.
"Customers can be reassured knowing that our PDUs have been pretested, reducing integration costs, accelerating deployments and minimizing risk of failure," said Nicholson. "The power information provided by Server Technology's PDUs at the device level in conjunction with Cisco's EnergyWise Network will give data center and IT professionals the information they need to control and improve their energy efficiency," added Nicholson.
