Server Technology, specialists in producing the highest quality rack mount power distribution units and power monitoring solutions, announced the integration of its new 6.1 rack mount power distribution unit (PDU) firmware with IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager Version 4.4. IBM’s Active Energy Manager (AEM) measures, monitors and manages energy and environmental readings in the data center and has the capability of interfacing directly with IBM systems as well as power distribution units, uninterruptible power supplies, sensor networks and facility management applications. Server Technology’s Per Outlet Power Sensing (POPS(TM)) PDUs with the most recent 6.1 firmware, provide the most accurate and granular information available for data center power consumption, temperature and humidity.
"The integration effort to achieve this compatibility was minimal – which I believe is a testament to Server Technology’s high-quality firmware and keen focus on backward compatibility," said Nathan Rabe, Staff Software Engineer, IBM Systems & Technology Group. "The integration of Server Tech’s latest version of firmware in their entire line of intelligent PDUs allows IBM’s Active Energy Manager customers to derive a wealth of highly accurate and granular power consumption data across their data center."
