Optimizing Rack Power Distribution

Without advanced rack power distribution technologies, today’s modern data centers risk being unable to keep up with ever-expanding business requirements. To ensure peak operating efficiency and reliability, data centers must monitor every piece of power-drawing equipment with high accuracy and granularity. This requires advanced rack power distribution units (PDUs) that not only monitor, but also enable the management of power distribution.

This white paper discusses the forces shaping today’s data centers, describes the qualities of a next-generation PDU, and defines the capabilities businesses should look for when selecting these units.
