Latest System Center Configuration Manager Delivers Power Management features

  • Comments 1

The System Center Configuration Manager team announced today the availability of R3 Beta for Configuration Manager 2007.  This R3 Beta release includes new capabilities in Power Management including the ability to monitor current power state and consumptions, plan and create a power management policy, check for exception, apply power management policy, check compliance and remediate non-compliance and report saving in power consumption and costs.  With these tools, organizations are also able to develop flexible power management strategies that make sense, giving them the ability to create policy exceptions for critical systems or tools to enforce different power settings for peak and non-peak periods.

Conserving power at the desktop level translates not only into potential cost savings through power consumption reduction it also provides the ability to reduce organizational carbon footprint.
