Customer Need

Drax Group PLC is a British electrical power generation company which runs Europe’s largest biomassfuelled power station, as well as supplying between 7-8 per cent of the country’s electricity needs.

The Challenge

The Drax Group were looking to potentially replace their current monitoring solution of primarily Nimsoft (but also comprising of other toolsets such as Solarwinds, Spotlight etc) and consolidate into a single pane of glass approach where possible. In addition enhancing monitoring into deeper areas such as application performance and workload monitoring.


Leveraging PowerON’s Fastrack Deployment framework PowerON deployed System Center Operations Manager to provide a monitoring solution for the numerous workloads present within Drax that require monitoring. This included common platforms such as:

  • Windows Server Operating Systems
  • Active Directory 
  • ADFS
  • DNS
  • DHCP
  • SQL
  • Exchange
  • IIS


Drax benefited from:

  • A single pane of glass for monitoring of services
  • Flexibility and potential to expand monitoring capability with the use of various Management Packs
  • Consolidated view of the estates and partner companies that form Drax
