“Impressive benefits” to customers
“Load management and demand response is the next frontier for optimizing energy productivity in any sector, and data centers represent a major energy efficiency challenge. EM4 offers a customized platform for addressing the energy management issues that are unique to the data center community,” summarized a judge.
Created for data centers to improve efficiency, capacity, and performance, Power Assure EM/4 software is a secure, cloud-based platform that offers integrated monitoring, analysis, and automation of data center information and processes. Users are able to collect, synthesize and analyze the overwhelming amount of raw data available from facilities and IT equipment and turn it into useful business information for making decisions in real time. This cloud-based software is flexible, “future-proof,” and secure, making it easy to implement.
Key features of the software include:
• Ability to synthesize data from all sources within the data center to provide analysis at any level of detail
• Automating existing processes, allowing you to take action based on environmental changes or other trigger events in order to optimize performance, reliability and service levels
• Taps into Power Assure’s Global Energy Intelligence database to allow comparisons with industry averages and “best in class” data center performance
The judges were equally impressed with its platform and usability, with one saying, “This is a solid product for companies running multiple data centers. I like that it collects data from other systems such as BMS and PMS and will analyze what is happening in real time… I also like that the EM/4 software will allow for automatic shifting of computing from one data center to another,” while another added, “Power Assure’s client and partner list is impressive, as well as the benefits its customers have enjoyed.”
Judges also noted that there was a benefit to creating a system with separate modules where a company can buy based on their current needs or add on when appropriate.
