Monitor, Analyze, and Control Server Power and Temperature
Lenovo XClarityTM Energy Manager helps you simplify data center energy management. XClarity Energy Manager is an easy to use application that analyzes and controls power consumption and temperature for groups of servers. By analyzing power and temperature data, XClarity Energy Manager helps data center administrators establish policy-based control over data center energy optimization goals which can improve business continuity and energy efficiency. Join us to see how this this application improves operation processes by:
•Monitoring energy consumption, estimating the power demand, and reallocating power to servers as needed.
•Monitoring the temperature and cooling capacity of servers and datacenter spaces.
•Sending notifications when certain events occur or when thresholds are exceeded.
•Limiting the amount of energy that an endpoint or a group consumes using policies.
•Optimizing energy efficiency by monitoring real-time inlet temperatures, identifying low-usage servers based on out-of-band power data, measuring power rangers for different server models, and evaluating how servers accommodate new workloads based on the availability of resources.
•Reducing the power consumption to a minimum level to prolong service time during an emergency power event (such as a data-center power failure).

Interview with Chris Hart: Portfolio Manager Robeco BP Global Premium.
Our version of value has three basic tenets to it. One, we’re always looking for inexpensive stocks. You want to buy a company that is less expensive than what an analyst would necessarily believe it’s worth. But what’s very important is that we have a very high level of quality in the portfolio. And that’s very important, because high-quality companies throughout market cycles will tend to outperform low-quality companies. And the third that we focus very heavily upon is companies that can continue to grow. And that somewhat differentiates us from a traditional value manager. And that we’re focused upon growth. We don’t think that growth and value are diametrically opposed. We just want to buy that growth at a very inexpensive price. And that inexpensive price to us is a multiple or free cash flow yields that are more favorable than the market.
The Robeco BP Global Premium Equities Fund is a highly flexible portfolio that can tap into the best companies anywhere in the world. In order to find the best companies, Chris Hart applies the ‘three circles’ approach to investing. Companies must have: a low Valuation, positive business Momentum, good Business Fundamentals.

Many companies now embrace the need and business case for supporting working parents and carers with policies and practices from flexible working to practical help with care. But research and experience show a critical success factor is the capability of managers.
A ‘good’ line manager can be decisive in how employees combine work and family and keep career on track. But the lot of the line manager is not an easy one. Managers face conflicts and challenges in delivering demanding business targets, managing diverse teams and implementing family friendly policies. With the right to request flexible working opening to all employees from 30th June and Shared Parental Leave in effect for babies due in April 2015, they have even more on their plates than ever before.
Enabling managers to manage these people issues well is often overlooked in organisations. In the research and surveys that My Family Care has carried out over recent years, many employees cite that interpretation and application of policy vary widely (and unfairly) across organisations depending on individual managers’ personal circumstances and values, disposition, management style and understanding of the level of freedom they have to interpret policy.
•Some of the common issues managers face
•How organisations can get to grips with the needs of their managers
•Options and solutions you can implement internally
