Cyber Switching Launches Single Phase Versions of ePower® Family of "Green" Power Distribution Units

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 28, 2016 /PR Newswire/ -- Cyber Switching (www .cyberswitching.com ), a leading provider and innovator of power distribution and power management solutions, announced the immediate availability of single phase versions of its award winning ePower® intelligent power distribution units (PDUs). Recognized with a 2010 Best of INTEROP Green Award and a 2010 Smart Grid Excellence Award, the ePower PDU is a green product featuring industry first technologies in the rack-mounted power distribution market. With these newest additions to the ePower family, there are now over 300 PDU configurations available.

ePower has been specifically designed with "green" in mind. Exceeding all RoHS-6 environmental standards and using the latest power-saving technologies, ePower helps customers "green" their power grid by providing critical metering data and remote management capabilities. With ePower, customers lower operational costs, identify energy reduction opportunities, and incentivize energy users to manage their own power consumption. For a colocation or enterprise datacenter with several groups of users, real-time power usage can now be tracked and attributed to each individual user, allowing the datacenter to charge customers based on actual usage and aligning user behavior with power reduction benefits. ePower from concept through manufacturing and into the customers' environment is the "green" leader.

ePower PDUs support several remote management options, such as HTTP/S, Web Services, SSH, Telnet, Syslog, SNMP, and, most recently, Cisco® EnergyWise . Cisco EnergyWise leverages the network as a platform, simplifying power management as an extension of your existing Cisco infrastructure. Cisco EnergyWise can be used to enforce enterprise-wide power management policies, gather power metrics into user-friendly dashboards, and enable customers to gain control over their power usage in both the datacenter and building infrastructure. The ePower PDU is the first intelligent PDU to support the latest version of Cisco EnergyWise, and provides power data and control for each outlet through the network. ePower and Cisco EnergyWise enable "green" even faster.

"Cyber Switching's innovation continues in the ePower platform, providing the best value in the industry," said Tom Schoepf, Senior Product Manager at Cyber Switching. "With the most input/outlet combinations and the most advanced power management features in the industry, ePower meets the needs of today's Datacenter Managers.
