PowerChute® Network Shutdown

Reliable network-based shutdown of multiple servers.

PowerChute Network Shutdown - APC
PowerChute Network Shutdown works in conjunction with the APC UPS Network Management Card to protect your physical and virtual IT environment from threats to IT availability. Network-based, graceful, unattended shutdown of your physical servers and virtual machines protects data integrity and reduces system downtime when critical events such as extended power outages occur. Its scalable architecture can support a virtually unlimited number of client systems. PowerChute Network Shutdown is easily configurable via a browser interface and supports Single, Redundant and Parallel UPS configurations.
Features & Benefits
Protection
Operating System Shutdown Prevents possible data corruption by performing graceful, unattended operating system shutdown in the event of an extended power outage or computer power problem.
Sequenced Server Shutdown Sequences the shutdown of multiple servers powered by the same UPS to extend runtime for higher priority servers.
Sequenced network shutdown and reboot Customize network shutdown and reboot sequence of connected servers and UPSs.
Run command file Run command file on network shutdown sequence as well as start-up sequence.
Secure communications Secured web access via HTTPS, as the default, ensures that communication between the device and the client interfaces cannot be interpreted.
 
Virtualization
Virtual Cluster Support Supports virtual machine migration, virtual machine shutdown and host shutdown in Virtual Clusters.
Virtual Cluster View Displays a graphical representation of your Virtual Cluster environment and UPS setup on a single screen to provide an intuitive view of your UPS and Host configuration.
Virtual Machine Migration Options Triggers virtual machine migration to available hosts in the same cluster on a single site or across different geographical locations. The option to control where specific virtual machines get migrated to is available by specifying the target host in either the same cluster or a different cluster.
VMware vApp Shutdown Enables shutdown and startup of VMware vApps to control the sequence of virtual machine shutdown/startup.
VMware Virtual Appliance Provides the option to deploy PowerChute as a virtual appliance for ease of installation.
VMware vSphere Plug-in Options A vSphere plug-in option integrates PowerChute with vCenter Server for ease of management enabling PowerChute monitoring with the vSphere Client. Plug-in options are available for either the vSphere Web Client or vSphere Desktop Client.
Microsoft SCVMM Integration Provides the option to integrate with System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) and leverage maintenance mode to migrate or save virtual machines when a critical UPS Event occurs.
 
Manageability
Browser Accessible View the user interface with a browser. Provides quick access from anywhere on a secure network.
Step-by-step configuration wizard Speeds deployment by reducing installation and set-up time. Allows configuration changes even after initial set-up.
Text-based INI configuration file Allows for flexibility in archiving configuration settings or copying configured settings from one Agent to another.
Network-based shutdown Reduces cable clutter by eliminating the need to connect the UPS and protected servers via cables.

IPv6 Support Capable of operating on a network using IPv6 protocol
Redundant-UPS configuration support Supports up to four UPS’s in a Redundant-UPS configuration. All UPS’s in a Redundant Configuration must belong to the same UPS family.
Parallel-UPS configuration support Recognizes a Parallel-UPS configuration as a single UPS system in the case of actionable events (for UPS devices that are parallel-capable).
Advanced Redundant UPS Setups Monitors multiple groups of redundant UPS's; each with configurable redundancy levels such as N+1, N+2 or N+3. Shutdown actions depend on the number of UPS's and the level of redundancy in each UPS setup.
 
Availability
Event logging Pinpoint the timing and sequence of events leading up to an incident with the event log.
