Power IQ Energy Management Software by Raritan

Power IQ® Energy Management Software enables data center managers, IT administrators and facility managers to be more energy efficient and fully utilize existing data center power infrastructure.  Powerful cooling charts, graceful OS shutdown and bill-back reports provide the tools to understand real-time power load, rate of change, and forecast trends at all levels of infrastructure.


The configurable dashboard provides a vendor agnostic centralized view of power and environmental health, energy capacity and consumption, weather services and maps. The smart rack concept provides one-click access to rack power, cooling, airflow, events and much more.


Raritan applications are standards-based, they seamlessly integrate with existing infrastructures, and work with Raritan’s dcTrack to provide a full featured Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution.


Through one Web browser, the scalable Power IQ manages APC®, Avocent®, Baytech®, Cyber Switching®, Eaton, Geist, HP, Knurr®, Liebert®, MRV, Raritan®, Rittal®, Server Technology® , Tripp Lite and UNITE™ rack PDUs, UPSs and more. Data Center Operators can add support for additional manufacturers on their own with the new user configurable data collection module by entering the MIB OID for the data they want to collect.


As the energy management component of Raritan’s DCIM solution, Power IQ helps data centers become more energy efficient by finding stranded power capacity through:


  • A user configurable dashboard
  • Agentless graceful shutdown of Windows®, Linux® and Unix® device groups
  • Psychrometric chart to calculate possible energy savings from simply increasing temperature
  • Energy cost bill-back reports to drive behavior
  • Decommission flags to forecast energy savings when eliminating servers
  • Baseline consumption and changes of various energy saving initiatives
  • Capture peak loads under compute stress to identify excess power capacity in the rack
  • Power capacity forecast charts
  • Power capacity utilization gauges
  • Smart Rack View with Quick Charts


Security is ensured through standards-based authentication, web-session timeout and IP-based access control. The system is open database compliant (ODBC) and includes a web service API for easy intergration with enterprise management sysems and scripts
