Server Technology, Inc., a provider of data center power distribution unit and power management solutions, has introduced updates 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 (News - Alert), in a statement.
Ewing said that through the company’s customer-driven innovation process and superior engineering, the company continues to expand the capabilities of its 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," he said.
Officials with Server Technology said that the latest version of SPM supports the company’s patented Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPSTM) devices as well as providing support for third-party power distribution units (PDUs), including APC, Geist and Raritan (News - Alert).
Company officials claimed that Server Technology's revolutionary PIPSTM 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.
Nicholson said that the most important new features are the support of the PIPS product, the PUE reporting availability, the syslog support and the ability to schedule outlet control, device discovery and database maintenance options.
