Enabling you to intelligently monitor and manage power usage in your data environment

As you face increased budget and regulatory pressure to reduce energy usage, your first priority is to understand what, where and how much power you're actually using. Without this information, it can be difficult to find ways to reduce energy costs and increase utilization of existing resources within your IBM Power Systems™ server environment. Equally important, any energy management measures you take must be implemented without impacting response time or continuity.

Using a proven approach based on extensive experience, our skilled consultants can help reduce the risk of disruption during installation while freeing your in-house staff for other initiatives.
