Dell OpenManage Power Center

When it comes to your data center, two things make a difference: strong and continual server performance and advanced management technologies to keep operational expenses down. To that end, Dell OpenManage Power Center offers a new view into data center power usage. 

Dell OpenManage Power Center is an open, standards-based power management application that can read power usage information from Dell PowerEdge servers, power distribution units, uninterruptible power supplies, and Dell PowerEdge blade server chassis. From the room, to the rack, to the server, managers can now: 

• Collect, observe, and optimize power utilization
• Increase uptime
• Improve server density
• Make better power-usage decisions


Measure and Manage Your Usage

OpenManage™ Power Center gives you the ability to measure and manage the power consumption of up to 2,000 servers and track both short-term and long-term historical data.


Create and Implement Multiple Usage Policies

OpenManage Power Center integrates with Intel® Node Manager to simplify implementation of management policies across your data center.


Reduce Consumption During Low-Load Hours

If demands on your systems are lower overnight or during weekends, OpenManage Power Center allows you to implement policies that throttle back power consumption during those times.


Mitigate Risk

Eliminate the guesswork around temperature management and help maintain uptime during thermal events with OpenManage™ Power Center.

Dell OpenManage Power Center also allows you to:

• Establish policies to throttle down non-essential servers when temperatures rise beyond optimal levels

• Maximize UPS uptime during a power outage

• Protect your data and your systems by implementing rack-level power-capping policies to prevent tripped circuit breakers

• Maintain uptime of critical applications by reducing noncritical consumption first

• Prioritize protections for groups of servers during a brownout
