Intel® Node Manager

Data center power management

Smart server management

Intel® Node Manager is a smart way to optimize and manage power and cooling resources in the data center. This server power management technology extends component instrumentation to the platform level and can be used to make the most of every watt consumed in the data center.

The second generation of Intel® Node Manager delivers two core capabilities that provide key information and control to enable the data center to be run in a more efficient manner—it reports system-level as well as processor and memory subsystem power consumption, and it limits power at the system, processor, and memory levels—utilizing policies defined by IT management.

To maximize the benefits of Intel® Node Manager, a management console is required to aggregate power data and set policies for physical and logical groups of servers. For more information:

Intelligent architecture that supports power management

This dynamic new approach to managing power in the data center is designed to take full advantage of Intel’s latest microarchitecture. The Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family, Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family, and Intel® Xeon® processor E3 family improve energy efficiency by up to 50 percent compared to the previous-generation Intel® server processors.1,2

Using intelligent energy management at the platform level helps IT administrators squeeze extra value and performance out of existing rack space while reducing the total cost of ownership by better managing power and cooling operational costs. Administrators can improve business continuity by dynamically capping power to avoid overcooling systems, reducing downtime and allowing critical operations to continue even during power or thermal events. They can also balance resources by dynamically moving power from one part of the data center to another, depending on where the need for power or cooling is greatest.
