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.

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.
Virtualization presents a tremendous opportunity for IT organizations. Yet deployment involves major process and management complexities.
This white paper outlines best-practice methodologies that help you tackle challenges brought on by virtualization. We also suggest key questions to ask when evaluating a consolidated management solution.
Increased processing needs means increased energy costs. In fact, power costs can often exceed hardware costs. Read this white paper and see how the pairing of new IBM System x and BladeCenter servers with the new Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series can reduce costs and improve performance.
Power distribution units (PDUs) are vital to the management of power to IT arrays and have evolved from a simple panel of switches and outlets to designs that can now be considered "intelligent" through the inclusion of internal processing capabilities.
