  • Features

    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.

    Benefits

    Availability

    • Event logging - Pinpoint the timing and sequence of events leading up to an incident with the event log.

    Manageability

    • Browser Accessible - View the user interface with a browser. Provides quick access from anywhere on a secure network.
    • Network-based shutdown - Reduces cable clutter by eliminating the need to connect the UPS and protected servers via cables.
    • 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.

    Compatibility

    • IPv6 Support - Capable of operating on a network using IPv6 protocol
