Energy management specialist JouleX this week announces an upgrade to JouleX Energy Manager (JEM), its network-based, “agent-less” product. The company says version 2.5 expands support for IT infrastructure with native integration with Cisco EnergyWise API, Intel’s Data Center Manager/NodeManager and VMWare’s vCenter.
The upgrade also provides expanded reporting, including the ability to identify top "power hogs" among all network-connected devices and systems. Launched in April 2010, JEM measures the energy consumption and utilization of all network-connected devices and systems to provide visibility into power usage across the enterprise.
“We will continue to evolve the JouleX Energy Manager to meet the unique energy management needs of the data center, distributed office network and facilities for our global customers,” said Tom Noonan, president and CEO at JouleX. “This release marks a significant advancement of our technology and is 100 percent driven by our customer’s input and requests, which underscores the commitment we have to our customers.”
JEM 2.5 also features the addition of JouleX Mobile. a location-based "smart" mobile application for a company’s employees to manage the power usage of all their personal productivity devices such as PCs, MACs, Linux workstations, monitors, voice-over-IP phones, printers and wireless access points.
