WTI's VMR series metered PDUs can help you keep an eye on your data center, and let you know when your equipment is acting up before things get completely out of hand. Knowing is only half the battle, the VMR also allows you to reboot outlets when an attached device ceases to respond, disable outlets to reduce current consumption or switch on cooling devices to lower rack temperature.

The VMR includes a robust selection of monitoring features, including event alarms, outlet-specific metering and SNMP polling to help you keep tabs on vital network elements, avoid costly service calls and maximize up time.

Reboot Local & Remote Equipment

Servers, routers, and other electronic equipment sometimes lock-up, often requiring a service call to a remote site just to flip the power switch to perform a simple reboot. The VMR gives you the ability to remotely reboot and switch equipment from anywhere; just point your browser to the IP address of any VMR unit, enter the secure user name and password, and you're just a click away from remote power On, Off or Reboot!

Easy to Configure, Easy to Use

The VMR can be configured remotely via TLS, or locally via the serial console port. Easy to master, user-friendly menus and commands allow you assign a location name, set system parameters and view plug status. Outlets can be switched on, off, rebooted or set to user-defined default status using plug numbers or names.

Versatile Alarm Functions for Automatic Reboot and Power Switching

In addition to performing on-demand power switching, the VMR also includes a poweful assortment of alarm functions, which can automatically reboot or switch outlets when high rack temperatures, open circuit breakers, power supply irregularities, unresponsive network elements and other significant events and conditions are detected. When alarm functions are triggered, the VMR can provide notification via email, SNMP trap or SYSLOG message. Each alarm can be customized to select triggers and response actions to fit your application.

Security and Co-Location

The VMR also includes a formidable array of security, authentication and co-location features to ensure that access to critical command and configuration functions is thoroughly protected from unauthorized access. In addition to password protection, the VMR also supports HTTPS, SSHv2, SNMPv3, TLS, IPSec, OpenVPN as well as popular authentication protocols such as LDAP, Active Directory, Kerberos, RADIUS and TACACS+.

The VMR's user account directory provides four different access levels; Administrator, Super User, User and View Only. Each account level enables the user to access to a different set of command, view or configuration capabilities. Higher level users can be granted access to all command, status and configuration functions, while lower level users can be limited only to control functions or status display capabilities.

Supports DUO Technology Radius 2FA

DUO is a cloud based two factor authentication (2FA) service that corroborates the identity of each logon to ensure that users are actually who they claim to be. When a user enters an account name and password to logon to the VMR, DUO then re-authenticates the user’s identity via mobile phone or other device. This effectively shifts access protection from a perimeter based approach that relies on the privacy of the user’s logon credentials, to an application based security solution that requires additional interaction from the user before access is granted.

SAN Certificate Support

In order to help simplify configuration and setup of SSL communication, VMR Series Products now support Subject Alternative Names (SAN). SAN is an extension to SSL X.509, that allows a selection of additional host names (DNS names, IP Addresses, Email Address and URIs,) to be protected by a single SSL Certificate. Subject Alternative Names allow you to perform virtual hosting of multiple SSL sites on a single IP address and eliminate the hassles involved in configuring multiple IP addresses on your server.

Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP)

Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) simplifies day 0 onboarding of VMR units and in many cases, eliminates the need to have an engineer present during initial set up. If configuration information is not detected during boot up, Zero-Touch Provisioning will be activated and the device will contact a DHCP server and then download a configuration script and perform a firmware update without user intervention. This drastically reduces service interruptions due to human error and cuts the time required to set up newly installed VMR Series products.

Includes Enterprise Management Software

outlet metered pdu with enterprise management software

All WTI console server and switched PDU products include WTI’s convenient Enterprise Management Software, which drastically simplifies the task of managing multiple WTI devices spread throughout your network infrastructure. The WMU Enterprise Management Software provides a centralized command interface that allows administrators to easily manage, label and control multiple WTI console servers and switched PDUs in large network applications, reducing the time required to access console port command and power control and reboot functions for connected devices.

Once installed on your PC or laptop, the WMU Enterprise Management Software can search a user-defined IP address range on your network and discover all WTI console servers and switched PDUs within the range. Discovered units are then added to the Enterprise Management Software’s inventory, allowing administrators to assign a descriptive tag to each WTI device in order to denote the location or function of the device. In addition to providing a centralized interface for remote console port access and power reboot and control functions, the Enterprise Management Software can also be used to control firmware updates for WTI products and edit and manage user accounts at individual or multiple WTI devices.
