It has been obvious for some time that the power distribution system within the data center is the key opportunity to focus upon in order to actively manage the rising costs of power and more specifically, identify problems and waste in real-time.
With future-thinking organizations sharing knowledge between Facilities and IT, the push for more intelligence within this rack-based power infrastructure has become urgent with higher rack power densities. In fact, proactive power management at all stages in the distribution chain within enterprise data centers has become the requirement to feed efficiency studies and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) style optimization initiatives.

This paper will describe how tens, hundreds, or even thousands of rack PDUs can be managed as a single continuous layer with easy configuration. It is this power layer that provides information on the energy usage of the IT load within the data center through versatile reporting which is then used for PUE, DCeP and other metrics.
