Nowadays, rack PDUs offer more than simple power distribution. They provide power and environment monitoring, infrastructure management, remote power management, and more. Read the handbook and learn how rack PDUs can change the way you mange power in your data center!
Learn why rack PDUs with outlet switching & power measurement are a must in the modern data center or Get remote monitoring and management from anywhere with switched POPS PDUs.

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.
Digital technology is so intrinsic to our personal lives that we barely think
about the fitness trackers and smartphones that are as much a part of
us as the clothing we wear. For organizations, the shift to digital is more
disruptive and the stakes far higher. Digital transformation has been high
on the executive agenda for a few years and, for many, harnessing data
has become a significant force for value and revenue creation.
Agility has emerged as an organizational superpower as businesses
grapple with change and uncertainty in their own customer bases and in
the global political and economic landscape. IT has been thrust into the
spotlight as the unwitting hero of the story – tasked with delivering on
the digital vision, implementing all manner of applications and building
firm infrastructure foundations to support the latest digital initiatives.
In an increasingly on-demand world, it is this final point that often gets
overlooked in the rush for the next shiny new technologies. E

As wattages increase in high-density server racks, providing redundant
power becomes more challenging and costly. Traditionally, the most
practical solution for distributing redundant power in 208V server racks
above 5 kW has been to connect dual 3-phase rack PDUs to dual power
supplies in each server. Although this approach is reliable, it negates a
rewarding system design opportunity for clustered server applications.
With their inherent resilience and automated failover, high-availability
server clusters will still operate reliably with a single power supply in
each server instead of dual power supplies. This streamlined system
design promises to reduce both capital expenditures and operating
costs, potentially saving thousands of dollars per rack.
The problem is that dual rack PDUs can’t distribute redundant power
to a single power supply. An alternative approach is to replace the dual
PDUs with an automatic transfer switch (ATS) connected to a single PDU,
but perfecting an ATS tha

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.

When you’re designing a data center, server room or network closet, deciding which racks to deploy and how to configure them should be at the top of your list. Just like building a house, the surface details may steal the spotlight, but it’s the quality of the underlying foundation that makes the difference between success and frustration.
Racks organize IT equipment, such as servers and network switches, into standardized assemblies that make efficient use of space and other resources. Depending on the options you choose, they can also improve power protection, cooling, cable management, device management, physical security, mobility, ease of installation and protection from harsh environmental conditions.
Choosing the right racks and configuring them to match your needs will ensure that your IT equipment operates reliably and efficiently, saving your organization from costly downtime and other needless expenses.
An IDC study shows Dell EMC VxRail and VxRack hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) Powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor systems deliver the efficiency, performance and savings to increase business agility and enable innovation across your organisation.
IDC interviewed organizations that have deployed Dell EMC VxRail and VxRack hyperconverged solutions powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor to support their expanding IT and business operations. Study participants reported that Dell EMC HCI solutions serve as a foundation for innovation across their distributed organizations by providing a cost-effective, agile, and high-performing IT infrastructure foundation. The result is that these organizations are realizing a 619% five-year return on their investment in Dell EMC HCI solutions, which IDC puts at a value of $150,776 per 100 users per year, resulting in a six-month payback period.
Organisations that modernise IT with hyper-converged systems from Dell EMC achieve operating and cost efficiencies, allowing them to invest more in innovation, says IDC.

All companies, small and large, grapple with infrastructure growth and IT modernization. For many companies, datacenter infrastructure has become an essential part of a hybrid cloud environment that allows users to consume internal and external resources seamlessly. This, in turn, is helping modernize today's datacenters and drive new levels of agility, productivity, and scale.
A common attribute of modern datacenter infrastructure is solutions that provide all compute and data services as a single system that can be managed holistically at a rack scale. IDC refers to such solutions as converged infrastructure.
