I don’t make New Year’s resolutions for a very good reason – because I don’t keep them. But I do try and keep my promises, one of which was to do a better job blogging about HP Enterprise Server, Storage and Networking energy efficient products.
Intelligent Power Discovery (IPD) is one of our cool technologies that does something that no other IT vendor is currently offering – it provides a way to monitor power consumption and manage power in the data center AND it automatically discovers ProLiant servers as they are plugged in to insure redundancy and track assets.
The components of HP Intelligent Power Discovery include:
- Platinum Common Slot Power Supplies - The Platinum Common Slot power supplies for flexibility connect to bright blue power lines are rated as the most efficient in the industry with a power efficiency of at least 94 percent.
- Intelligent Power Distribution Unit (iPDU) – Was recently named the Data center Infrastructure Silver Award winner by SearchDataCenter.com. It consists of six individually monitored blue C19 outlets saves organizations hours of configuration time and reduces errors by automatically identifying ProLiant servers, then maps and records server asset information by outlet, which is discovered by Insight Control power management software.
- Insight Control power management software - Intelligent rack and power planning management allows instant server discovery and improves precision based on real-time power demands and helps prevent downtime.
You can read more about the techology and award in David Chetham-Strode’s blog.
Over half of data center outages are caused by human error. Protect and prevent outages before they occur? Now that’s a brilliant idea.
