Don’t let the cost of downtime keep you from meeting your service and revenue expectations. One reboot via web, cloud or automation and you are back up and running. Keep your critical systems operational without expensive service calls. Use low-cost remote power control to automatically reboot failed devices and get up and running in the most cost effective way possible.
iBoot, the network power switch, will save you time and money by reducing costly downtime. Just point your browser to the iBoot, login and you are one click away from bringing that failed system back to life. iBoot will even detect failed systems and take immediate action.
iBoot Cloud Service (iBCS) allows customers to access and control multiple power switches in multiple locations from a single portal with a single sign-on.
Having one web interface for all remote locations will not only make using the remote power switches easier, by consolidating all units into one sign-on and interface, it will also enhance the number of situations where iBoot can be deployed.
iBoot automatically monitors and protects your network. AutoPing continuously tests your connectivity to the internet or to any device on your network. When the network is down, or the device stops functioning, iBoot reboots the failed system to get you back on-line fast.
For servers, the Heartbeat service generates a “I’M OK” message from your server to iBoot. When that message disappears, iBoot will reboot the server, using Graceful Shutdown if possible prior to using power off to reboot the crashed system.
Dataprobe Remote Reboot products are UL Listed. This means they are tested by Underwriters Labratories and Certified to meet their exacting standards. It also means that the tests conducted are appropriate for the type of device under test. Only devices that are tested and pass all the tests conducted by UL can apply the UL label.
Dataprobe PDUs are listed under UL 60950-1, and as such are designed for stricter data center environments. Only UL 60950-1 insures that PDUs offer appropriate branch circuit protection.
Other companies use independent labs that test to UL standards. These may or may not be the appropriate safety standards. It is very easy to say tested to UL standards, but that might be for noise emissions or something other than fire safety. Some companies completely forgo safety testing!
