CyberPower Adds Advanced VMware vSphere Enterprise Functionality to Business-Class Power Management Software

Free PowerPanel Business Edition software supports virtualized IT environments

Cyber Power Systems (USA), Inc., a leader in power protection and management products, announced the new release of its PowerPanel Business Edition software. The software provides advanced power management for uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and network-connected power distribution units (PDU). PowerPanel Business Edition v3.3 works with VMware vSphere to allow for the graceful shutdown of virtual environments during extended power events. Used with VMware vCenter, the software offers additional features to centralize control and visibility of virtualized environments and power conditions.

PowerPanel Business Edition remains one of the only leading UPS power-management software solutions that is available completely free of charge. “Version 3.3 adds functionality for managing VMware ESXi cluster environments, supporting the efficiencies demanded by IT departments, enterprises and outsource providers. These needs include increasing application availability, resiliency and automation,” said Dorian Haro, senior product manager at CyberPower.

Enhanced power management for virtual environments

CyberPower’s PowerPanel Business Edition v3.3 facilitates easier shutdowns in virtual environments to reduce data corruption and loss, while minimizing downtime during extended power events. IT system administrators and managed service providers reap improved power-management capabilities with these features:

  • Out-of-the-box, configurable automated graceful shutdown sequence to allow IT professionals to protect their virtual environments from data loss or corruption.
  • Used together with vCenter, the software provides ease of management to centralize control and visibility of virtualized environments and power conditions.
  • Improved management of the virtual infrastructure with capabilities to shut down virtual machines, monitor clusters, monitor and shutdown of vApps, and monitor shared storage.
  • Triggers vMotion to migrate virtual machines within a cluster, moving the virtual machine to an available ESXi host seamlessly, to keep applications operational during power events and maintain business continuity.

In addition to VMware, CyberPower Business Edition software is compatible with many types of operating systems including Citrix, Linux, Mac, and Windows.
