In the market of 2020, today’s data center manager is responsible for not only overseeing capacity planning management, but also ascertaining the capability to determine, drive and report on energy efficiency. A new white paper from Server Technology defines 10 things every data center manager should know about power and identifies key considerations for the data center planner and operator, regarding how to simply and reliably power all of the IT hardware in the modern data center.
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.
Most every Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) equipment rack used to store compute, storage or network equipment requires a rack-mount Power Distribution Unit (PDU) or power strip to distribute power to equipment. A new report from Chatsworth Products explores how to decide which PDUs and power strips are right 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.
The ability to remotely monitor and manage power data from the rack and device level is boosting demand for intelligent power distribution units. In the edition of Voices of the Industry, Ashish Moondra, Senior Product Manager, Power, Electronics & Software, at Chatsworth Products, explores the value of intelligent power distribution units in colocation.
This white paper looks at the concepts, considerations and approaches in designing, selecting and deploying the appropriate rack PDU for typical data center applications. It describes the basic ingredients for delivering adequate, reliable power to the rack, as well as the factors and best practices that will contribute to a reliable, operationally efficient and environmentally sound data center for today and for the future.
