Eaton’s Visual Power Manager Wins “Best IT Software” Category


Multinational power management company, Eaton has been named Gold winner in Network Products Guide’s 2017 IT World Awards in the “Best IT Software” category for its Visual Power Manager (VPM) software.

Network Products Guide, a leading technology research and advisory guide, annually honors products and top achievements in every facet of the information technology (IT) industry.

The Visual Power Manager software’s robust platform provides data centers and IT professionals with the tools to monitor and manage power distribution in their infrastructure, including rack power distribution units (PDUs) and uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs).

Another great feature of the VPM is its capacity to initiate mass firmware, run bulk commands and send mass information to the Power distribution Units, thus saving time and resources.

With its user-friendly setup which streamlines the deployment process, and relieves common pain points with software installation, the VPM provides easy deployment for operators of all sizes and types of data centers, from multi-tenant facilities to remote data closets.

The software’s real-time monitoring capabilities also help improve business continuity and ensure that power is continuously supplied to critical equipment. It also supports reporting which alerts users of potential issues to ensure you can react and take corrective action quickly.

Network Products Guide has recognised Eaton products in its annual awards for four consecutive years. In 2016, Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager™ software won Gold in the “Best IT Software” category.
