Features real-time monitoring of current and voltage
2bm, a provider of data centre technology, has launched iMeter, a new data centre power monitoring offering that helps businesses monitor and reduce power consumption in data centre.
The iMeter can be used at rack level, and provides insight into energy requirements of servers, storage area networks, switches, and attendant supporting equipment.
The new data centre power monitoring offering features: real-time monitoring of current and voltage; true-RMS current metering for maximum accuracy; installation into ‘live’ environments; user configurable alarm thresholds; and web interface.
In addition, iMeter also offers SNMP for NMS integration, on-board logging/graphing, and intelliAmp monitoring of 16A and 32A cables.
2bm director Mark King said that the iMeter is an efficient data centre power monitoring tool which can be implemented in a ‘live’ environment without a complete re-fit, allowing normal uninterrupted operation.
"Indeed, within just three days, the average medium-sized data centre can be set up with the 2bm iMeter solution, providing managers with real-time access to continuous, in-depth and accurate energy consumption information," King said.
