Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) SDK provides power and thermal monitoring and management for servers, racks and groups of servers in data centers. Management Console Vendors (ISVs) and System Integrators (SIs) can integrate Intel® DCM into their console or command-line applications and provides high value power management features to IT organizations.
Power and thermal monitoring allows you to get real-time, accurate power and thermal consumption data, manage datacenter hot spots, plan and forecast power usage and replace costly intelligent power strips
Increasing rack density to maximize server count per rack in a fixed rack power envelope to increase DC utilization
Power optimizations on specific workload types allows you to provide the optimized power profile per server/rack/floor or workload/application and cut electricity costs
Business continuity allows to continue or prolong operation during power outage
