Energy costs are the fastest rising expense for today’s data centers. Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) provides real-time power and thermal consumption data, giving you the clarity you need to lower power usage, increase rack density, and prolong operation during outages.
The console's intuitive design and focus on data center processes facilitates operational work. It provides a platform for facilities and IT professionals to assess energy consumption—the fastest growing cost element in the data center.
The 30-day trial allows you to manage 10 devices. Import your official license to an active console for Intel DCM after the trial version expires. Purchase additional licenses through your local reseller and import the new licenses as needed.

Multiple power measurement and control protocols supported by different OEMs make it challenging to have a single power management solution across all devices in the data center. These examples demonstrate how Intel DCM resolves this issue.
Power and Thermal Monitoring
Accurate real-time power and thermal consumption data gives you the insight needed to manage power use and hot spots for your data center or colocation. Manage hot spots, plan and forecast power usage, and replace costly intelligent power strips.
Monitor Health and Use
Access granular subcomponent failure analysis and out-of-band, real-time use data (for a CPU, disk, and memory).
Historical Data, Analysis, and Reporting
Identify under-provisioned racks and maximize server count per rack in a fixed-rack power envelope for increased data center use.
Power Optimizations on Specific Workload Types
Cut electricity costs by providing an optimized power profile per server, rack, and floor, or per workload and application.
Continue or prolong operation during power outages, providing better service with shorter and less frequent outages.
