Sentilla, which sells enterprise software for tracking power utilization across data centers, has updated its Sentilla Energy Manager software to version 3.0. The big new feature in the release is the ability for companies to keep tabs not just on devices that have power meters but also on equipment that isn't traditionally metered.
The new software also includes deeper reporting features, which would enable a facilities or IT manager to create more specific chargeback reports or manage costs tied to a specific department or line of business within a company more closely.
Here's a comment from Sentilla CEO Bob Davis: " In ongoing conversations with CIOs and IT managers, we've repeatedly heard that tackling the issue of energy use in the data center is a top five priority for 2010. The challenge they face in getting started is the lack of visibility into energy use by unmetered equipment. Sentilla enables companies to manage energy like any other IT asset in the data center."
