Interact with the 9170+

The Eaton® 9170+ UPS is uniquely designed to meet the ever-changing needs of customers with applications such as data centers, networks and call centers. Built for a global audience, the 9170+ is a scalable, modular, flexible solution that combines the highest level of reliability with the lowest cost of ownership in the 3–18 kVA range.

The 9170+ enables customers to build a power solution specific to their needs, with an expandable level of redundancy and increases runtimes through plug-and-play 3 kVA UPS and battery modules. The 9170+ can be configured to fit three-, six-, nine- or twelve-slot enclosures, and is available for tower and rackmount applications.

The 9170+ also features a Power Saver mode, a user-selectable feature that increases unit efficiency from 88% in normal operating mode to 97%. With its low initial investment, double-conversion technology, ABM battery management system and highefficiency Power Saver mode, you never have to compromise reliability for efficiency.

Unique to the 9170+ is its global deployment capability. By using a high-frequency design, housing both logic and power in the power module, and offering a single-cabinet design, distributors and purchasing departments around the world have fewer system components to contend with, regardless of where the system is deployed.

Technical spotlight: Network level N+X redundancy

As business moves from a "bricks and mortar" model to "clicks and mortar," the need for system availability at all levels of enterprise is rising exponentially. From servers to routers to telecommunication installations, the interdependence of the technological components of the wired world can make systems vulnerable to downtime. Many precautions and preventive measures are taken when designing the network, including power protection.

In this shifting world, however, it's becoming more evident that simple power protection isn't enough. A new level of reliability is needed, one with redundancy, and thereby system availability. Today users can opt for an even greater degree of redundancy, with N+1, N+2, N+3, etc. However, this level of redundancy can quickly become cost prohibitive if the user is creating redundant systems with a single-module UPS. The 9170+ overcomes this potential obstacle with its modular design. Redundancy comes from the 3 kVA power modules plugged into the system. For example, if you have a 9 kVA solution, and are looking for N+2 redundancy, you only need a 15 kVA UPS (five power modules) with the 9170+, instead of 18 kVA. That's because the five UPS modules run in parallel within the system, giving you N+2 redundancy, without the additional cost and space requirements.

The 9170+ eliminates a system-level single point-of-failure. Because both the logic and power are housed in the module and not in the enclosure, there is a redundancy for the entire UPS. This is a critical distinction when looking for multiple levels of redundancy in the UPS, as there is inherent vulnerability in a UPS that limits redundancy in any part of the system.

Sample configuration

With a variety cabinet sizes and a user-friendly design you can configure the scalable and redundant 9170+ with 3 kVA power modules and battery modules to grow with your requirements.

Intelligent Power Software Suite:

  • Intelligent Power Manager: software for extensive monitoring and management
  • Intelligent Power Protector: shutdown software for extended power outages

Use each software independently or as a powerful combination. Together with your UPS, they provide end-to-end power management for maximum uptime and data integrity.

Intelligent Power Software Suite

Eaton's Intelligent Power® Software Suite incorporates two important applications for ensuring quality power and uptime: remote monitoring and management of power devices across the network and automatic, graceful shutdown when faced with an extended power outage.

Intelligent Power Manager supervisory software lets you monitor and manage multiple power and environmental devices across the network from a single interface, giving you up-to-the-minute information on the status of power in your network. It also works seamlessly with VMware's vCenter Server™ and vMotion™ as well as other platforms and migration applications.

Intelligent Power Protector protection software provides graceful, automatic shutdown of network devices during a prolonged power disruption, preventing data loss and saving work-in-progress. As part of Eaton's power network management system, these two applications work together to deliver comprehensive power management and protection. Both software programs are compatible with virtualization platforms from VMware®, Microsoft®, Red Hat® and Xen®.

Benefits for virtualized environments

Intelligent Power Manager's integration with platforms like vCenter and XenCenter™ helps data center managers reduce infrastructure and operating costs while increasing uptime, productivity and operational responsiveness.

  • View critical power information on devices including UPSs, ePDUs and environmental sensors from the vCenter or XenCenter dashboard
  • Instantly access critical information, such as UPS battery condition, load levels and battery runtime
  • Remotely and gracefully shut down servers in clusters during an extended power outage
  • Trigger vMotion, XenMotion™ and other migration applications to transparently move virtual machines to an available server on the network
  • Monitor power usage and kWh to help you calculate your power usage effectiveness (PUE) and identify where to cut costs

When it comes to managing power on your network, one missed anomaly or malfunctioning power device brings everything to a halt. Keeping an eye on the status of power devices across the network, and intervening before a blip cascades into a catastrophe, is a top priority.

Eaton's Intelligent Power Manager brings managing a wide range of power and environmental devices under control through a single, Web-based interface. This versatile software solution is compatible with network-enabled power devices, including Eaton UPSs, non-Eaton UPSs, environmental sensors and ePDUs. In addition, Intelligent Power Manager is the first power management software to not only integrate with VMware's vCenter, letting you manage power to your virtualized environment through the vCenter dashboard, but also to enable the remote shutdown of servers in clusters. Intelligent Power Manager even integrates with several virtualization platforms allowing ease of management and live migration, which will transparently move virtual machines from a server affected by a power interruption to a non-affected server on the network, maintaining data integrity with no downtime.
