You have a deadline, and you have your goals. 

Your hyperscale data center design needs to maximize power efficiency. Use free air cooling or adiabatic cooling. And support ambient air operating temperature of 25-35oC, with hot aisle exhaust temperatures approaching 60oC. 

You need lots of outlets – C13s, C19s, or even something that allows you to blind mate servers to the power strip. 

And it needs to meet regulatory requirements in most major geographical regions around the world. 

You want to keep it simple.  

And you will need to stand up thousands of them in a very tight time frame. That screams for a basic power strip – just power in and power out. 

Or does it? 

The no-compromises solution is a power strip that supports remote outlet switching and offers integration through SNMP or via API to most major DCIM and data center management tools.

I’d like to hear from you:
