Updated software enables controlled server shutdown in the event of unexpected power outage
Southampton, UK [September 11, 2017] – Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, today released an updated version of Trellis™ Power Insight, a data center management application delivering widespread, centralized monitoring and control of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and networked servers. The solution offers a comprehensive set of alarms, notifications and automated actions, up to and now including controlled server shutdown. The software is included with Liebert® UPS systems. More than 500 users are already using the application, which is available globally.
Trellis Power Insight simplifies management of today’s ever-changing data center environments with auto-discovery of new devices, compatibility and integration with a wide range of Liebert UPS systems, and control through the UPS on-unit, best-in-class touch screen user interface.
“Because the management of data centres increases in complexity, Vertiv continually evolves to provide solutions to make this management less complex and more efficient,” said John Curran, vice president product management at Vertiv. “This new enhancement to Trellis Power Insight enhances management capabilities for the user, including remote management of distributed IT environments, the ability to safely shut down servers in the event of an outage, thereby making the management of UPS equipment easier for data centre managers.”
Most data center applications allow for anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes of battery power from UPS units. Trellis Power Insight can monitor up to 50 separate Liebert UPS systems and systematically and safely shut down up to thousands of connected servers in the event of an outage. Controlled server shutdown prevents equipment damage and business interruptions when restarting.
In addition, Trellis Power Insight provides real-time trending data, including voltage and current, for critical UPS performance. This data is consolidated and viewed in customized dashboards to centralize management of all UPS systems.
Existing users are able to update their software by visiting the Vertiv software download page on the Vertiv website.
