While Eaton’s best-in-class UPS solutions will protect your equipment against power failures, with Eaton Intelligent Power Manager Software (IPM) your critical systems, and even your entire virtual environment, are backed by high-quality software that will pro-actively take control, consolidate computing resources and if necessary, safely shut down machines. IPM provides users with a wide array of advantages. For starters, it enables remote monitoring and configuration of multiple Eaton UPSs, intelligent power distribution units and local shut-down agents across the network from a single interface, including any PC with a web browser.
IPM also includes an auto-discovery feature that provides a fast installation process by automatically detecting devices on the network. The software’s user-definable tree structure allows grouping, access and management of multiple devices across multiple locations and provides an option to view groups of similar devices and all event alerts in a single interface. Furthermore, the software enables the supported hardware devices to be visible, with the ability to edit and configure individual web interfaces while bolstering security with multiple-password protected access levels and secure communication options.
