Eaton first to release software compatible with Windows 7 operating system
Eaton Corporation announced that its line of supervision and protection products are compatible with Microsoft's new Windows 7 operating system.
Eaton’s software family, including Intelligent Power Manager, NetWatch, Network Shutdown Module, Personal Solution-Pac and LanSafe, allows Windows 7 enterprise servers, small business and home-use personal computers to be monitored and safely shut down during a power failure, protecting and saving valuable data.
“Windows 7 is Microsoft’s most advanced Windows operating system for business and home PCs, designed to meet the evolving needs of users and Information Technology (IT) professionals, both in and out of the office,” said HervÃ© Tardy, vice president and general manager, Eaton Distributed Power Quality Business Unit. “Eaton’s suite of power management and protection software brings together the ease of use of Windows 7 machines with the security, protection, control and simplicity of managing and monitoring uninterruptible power system (UPS)-protected PCs and servers.”
Eaton has been on the forefront of maximizing compatibility of its power management software to the latest operating systems, providing customers with the most advanced and easy-to-use power protection solutions in the marketplace. Most importantly, Eaton’s power management software used with its energy efficient UPSs gives users a complete and affordable solution to power protection and power management.
For IT environments, Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software can substantially lower costs for supervising networked UPSs and associated equipment, compared to using major network management system platforms. Intelligent Power Manager can carry out a scan for all the UPS systems on the network regardless of vendor and discover and manage other critical power components, such as Eaton’s ePDUÂ® products and environmental sensors, giving administrators comprehensive control of their protected infrastructure.
