Chatsworth Products asserts that those managing remote ICT equipment or a laboratory environment should consider an intelligent rack PDU with remote power control capability as part of an overall power management strategy. A new report, “Remote Management of Data Center Cabinets: The Importance of Remote Power Control in Multitenant/Colocation, Laboratory and Remote/Edge Sites,” explores further the potential of remote power control for colocation and more.
Three-Phase power distribution at the rack level traditionally means that power was divided into separate branches. Load balancing and cabling can be difficult. Alternating phased power on a per-receptacle basis provides tangible benefits in the form of simplified cabling, better airflow, better load balancing and greater efficiencies. Download the new white paper from Server Technology that outlines one solution to these issues: using an alternating phase PDU. These specially designed PDUs alternate the phased power on a per-outlet basis instead of a per-branch basis.
With the shift of enterprise-owned Information and Communications Technology (ICT) equipment into multi-tenant data center (MTDC)/colocation sites and the anticipated growth of remote/edge sites, basic control of power for remotely located ICT equipment is becoming an important consideration in overall power management strategy. Download a new white paper from Chatsworth Products that explores the most beneficial applications for intelligent rack PDUs with remote power control, defines the key capabilities to require on intelligent rack PDUs with remote power control, and lists additional monitoring and security capabilities that should be considered when selecting intelligent rack PDUs for use in laboratories, in remote/edge sites or when colocating enterprise-owned equipment into MTDCs.
How can understanding power consumption lead to a more efficient data center? The team at Raritan aims to answer that very question in a new report that explores power monitoring and metering in data centers.
Data center managers are continuously faced with the challenge of providing increased levels of power in subsequently reduced areas of space. Download the new white paper from Raritan that addresses how power monitoring solutions can be effectively used to meet these demands, while simultaneously delivering an IT environment that is able to achieve evolving business, usage, regulatory, and financial goals.
Many looking for a well-established solution for distributing power into Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) equipment racks will turn to power strips and rack-mount power distribution units, or PDUs, to solve their data center power needs. A new report from Chatsworth Products aims to make sure you explore all the necessary factors when picking the best power strip or PDU option for your enterprise.
Rack-mount power distribution units (PDUs) and power strips are a well-established solution for distributing power into Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) equipment racks. Download a new white paper, by Chatsworth Products (CPI), that presents additional considerations when selecting PDUs and power strips. It covers key concepts and features that enhance reliable power delivery and monitoring at the rack level. It concludes with resources that will help you select the right PDU or power strip for your application.
In this week’s Voices of the Industry column, Marc Cram, Director of Sales for Server Technology, discusses how PDUs and advancements in the PDU market is helping address the need for reusability and sustainability in the data center.
As technology advances, data grows, and the colocation industry evolves, concerns and demands on data center providers and managers are changing, as well. A new white paper from Server Technology highlights the top 10 concerns of data center managers today, as well as some of the macro trends facing those responsible for designing, operating and sustaining the IT and physical support infrastructure found in today’s data centers.
One of the challenges with intelligent cabinet power distribution units has been the ability of users to get them configured and working on their network. Only on the network can they truly provide the valuable power and environmental monitoring and alerts that the user has paid for. Download the new white paper from Server Technology that will offer suggestions and solutions as to ways the user can get their PDU’s up and going on the network quickly, with a reasonable amount of effort and configured in a way that provides real value to the facility personnel.
