Server Technology Inc.’s Sentry Power Manager (SPM) solution, version 5.0, is a unique data management tool that can serve as a user interface to cabinet power information and/or as a middleware solution, integrating with a variety of existing data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions. SPM provides data center power and environmental information via an Application Programming Interface (API) for a true “single pane of glass” view. In either application, SPM allows users to manage their entire CDU network for discovery, setup, configuration and firmware upgrades, as well as receive email alerts and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap forwarding and alarms. Additionally, SPM can monitor CDUs from APC, Raritan, Geist, and others.

Features include user defined customer NOC views, circuit and line management, improved scheduling, intelligent data grid management, automatic firmware upgrades, global thresholds, and integrated online help.
