PowerPanel Business is able to support vSphere monitoring, vMotion®, High Availability, Distributed Resource Scheduler, ™ and Distributed Power Management™. Enables PowerPanel Business Edition to perform additional functionality to manage and protect virtual infrastructure when power events occur. Used together with vCenter, PowerPanel Business provides ease of management to centralize control and visibility of virtualized environments and power conditions. Out-of-the-box, configurable automated graceful shutdown sequence allows IT professionals to protect their virtual environments from data loss or corruption.

The software supports the ability to shut down virtual machines, monitoring of clusters, monitoring and shutdown of VMware vSphere® vApps™, and the monitoring of shared storage.

PowerPanel Business can direct vMotion to migrate virtual machines within a cluster moving the virtual machine to an available ESXi host seamlessly keeping applications operational during power events to maintain business continuity.

The latest version of PowerPanel Business can monitor APC and Eaton UPS that have an SNMP card installed.

Cloud monitoring is available for UPS using PowerPanel Business Remote via the PowerPanel®Cloud application. To access the UPS details through the PowerPanel® Cloud service, a plan purchase is required.
