Eaton Joins EMC Technology Partner Program to Develop Integrated Power Management Solutions

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton today announced it has joined the EMC® Technology Partner Program. Eaton will apply the developmental resources provided by the program to design integrated power management solutions that help IT and data centre professionals to enhance uptime and business continuity.
“Joining the EMC Technology Partner Program builds upon Eaton’s continued commitment to developing integrated solutions, and industry-leading capabilities with virtual platforms, to provide customers and the IT channel with easy-to-deploy assets for enhancing business continuity,” said Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager of Eaton’s Distributed Power Quality Division.  

Eaton is focused on further developing the integrated capabilities of its Intelligent Power Manager™ software, which has VMware Ready™ and Citrix Ready® certifications and allows users to manage their entire power infrastructure remotely and directly through the VMware® vSphere™ or Citrix® XenCenter™ platforms.  

Today, customers can build on EMC’s  integrated capabilities with VMware vCenter™ by utilising Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software to automate disaster recovery and business continuity processes directly from the VMware platform, including the consolidation of non-critical workloads to extend battery runtime, automatic and transparent live migration of virtual machines and movement of critical workloads to a disaster recovery site to maintain business continuity in the event of an extended power outage.

“EMC is pleased that Eaton has joined the EMC Technology Partner Program to demonstrate its commitment to excellence in technology innovation for storage, security, backup, big data and analytics” said Parmeet Chaddha, Vice President, Solutions, EMC Corporation “We look forward to working with Eaton to ensure that our mutual customers have the highest level of support possible for their information infrastructure initiatives.”
