Power Management

power management software

GreenField Software has partnered with Intel to embed the Intel DCM: Energy Director into GFS Crane, adding powerful new capabilities to our DCIM software.

Meter-less Power Management

GFS Crane can now provide real-time actual power use readings without meters; real time accurate temperature readings without probes; and thermal mapping for identifying hot spots without expensive CFD software, providing an even more compelling ROI to customers implementing our solution. GFS Crane DCIM can auto-discover and monitor servers through the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI), measuring power consumed by blade and rack servers to near 100% accuracy without the need to install power meters. GFS Crane also helps to capture server inlet temperature without installing temperature probes, which can be used to generate thermal maps at rack, row and room levels without running separate CFD analysis.

Extensive Protocol Support

In addition to IPMI, GFS Crane continues to support a comprehensive range of IT and critical infrastructure protocols including: Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), MODBUS and BACnet. This allows seamless power monitoring of any device not on IPMI, as well as integration to MODBUS-based power meters and other facility critical infrastructure like HVAC and power generating units. BACnet support enables easy integration with leading Building Management Systems (BMS).

Powerful Reporting & Analytics

GFS Crane DCIM goes beyond power monitoring to include reporting and analytics. GFS Crane DCIM reports power consumed by cooling units, non-production applications, legacy applications, under-utilized servers and old equipment and recommends ways to reduce total power requirement for the data centers, lowering operating expenses and helping extend the life of current assets. Through analytics, the software identifies top power consumers in the data center and reports trends for peak and lean time. By measuring multi-level PUE as per Green Grid recommendations, GFS Crane identifies power distribution losses and the associated causes, enabling customers to take remedial action to proactively manage power consumption.
