As enterprises and service providers increase the amount of servers and network gear in remote locations, the ability to hands-on manage each device becomes increasingly complex. The amount of equipment, the distance between each field site and the ongoing constraint of the number of available personnel make this challenge even more difficult. The number one priority in managing each device is to ensure that each element is operational - that is, up and running.
The Sentry Intelligent Power Module-2 (IPM2) provides remote power management via IP for up to two servers or other devices in a remote location.
Remote Power Management of the IPM-2's individual receptacles allows a network manager to power off, power on and reboot network devices from any location via secure web interface, SSH, or out-of-band (dial-up) session. Now the network operations center can eliminate dispatching a field service person for manual intervention. Using a Sentry IPM-2 they can quickly restart locked-up remote severs and internetworking devices to ensure that the network is fully operational around the clock.
Use the exclusive Sentry Enterprise View enterprise management to find, access and control all the Sentry IPM-2 units on your network. Enterprise View uses auto-discovery to locate and report each IPM-2 and other Sentry units on your network and then provide access to control each unit's outlets settings. Turn on or off individual outlets or use it to power cycle an outlet to reboot a hung-up server or other device.
