ATLANTA —Dec. 7, 2010 —JouleX, the leading innovator in enterprise energymanagement solutions, today announced that its JouleX EnergyManager (JEM) product is now fully integrated with the Intel®Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) and the Intel®Intelligent Power Node Manager. JouleX’s“load-adaptive computingTM” dynamically allocatescomputing resources based upon system and application utilization,driving more energy efficiency and optimization across the datacenter.
Intel DCM provides power and thermal monitoringand management for servers, racks and groups of servers in datacenters. JEM brings increased energy intelligence, visibility andautomation to the physical server and virtual machine layers,helping IT and facility managers better understand and more easilymanage the power consumption of their computing resources.
“Intel Data Center Manager and IntelligentPower Node Manager are the building blocks of the data center ofthe future,” said Don Harbert, general manager, Software andServices Group, Intel. “JouleX’s unique load adaptivecomputing uses Intel architecture in an innovative new way to helpmaximize processing performance per watt.”
As the first network-based,“agentless,” enterprise energy management system tomeasure the energy consumption and utilization of allnetwork-connected devices and systems, JEM is delivering anotherindustry first with load-adaptive computing technology. Byautomating the discovery, analysis and dynamic policy execution,JEM helps extend the value of Intel’s DCM for large-scaledata centers and IT infrastructures.
JEM’s load-adaptive computing accuratelymeasures system and application utilization and power loads whiledynamically allocating computing resources as they are needed.Processes include:
Determining targets for virtualization
Integrating virtual layer and application-levelpower management with popular tools such as VMWare’svCenter
Adding computing resources by adjusting processorspeeds and virtual and/or physical server availability
Shifting computer resources based upon energycost and availability
Determining how energy demand response can affectcomputer resources in order to drive more informed businessdecisions
“As data center capacity has increased, sotoo has the power needs to run these mega-energy consumers,”said Tom Noonan, president and CEO at JouleX. “Both JouleXand Intel recognize the unique challenges data centers face interms of energy constraints and availability. We look forward toworking with an established leader to provide the necessaryfoundational components to truly automate energy management anddrive energy efficiency in the data center.”
