    What does a Rack PDU do again?

    by RJ Tee

    On the surface, it is an amazingly simple question. Everyone knows what a rack PDU is, don’t they? In one of the few industry blogs to reference the movie Gremlins, we attempted to answer the question in the context of the acronym-laden industry we work in. Power Distribution Unit. In this blog we are going to move beyond semantics and talk more about the doing side of a PDU. Our friends will point out that a power strip is just the same thing: a device that has outlets, a cord, and maybe a little surge protection thrown in. To channel my inner Elf, “Say power strip ONE MORE TIME!”

    Top Tools For Data Center Environmental Monitoring

    by RJ Tee

    There’s an old proverb that goes, “Trust, but verify.” This sentiment is particularly apt for data center management, where it’s vital to track every metric you can get your hands on. The need for better environmental monitoring capabilities is increasing due to increasing compute, network, and storage densities and increasing operating temperatures in the data center. Thus, keeping close watch over environmental activity in your data center, particularly when it comes to temperature, and humidity in the rack are critical to prevent disasters if left unchecked. So, what is the best way to get four or more data center environmental monitoring points in your cabinets? Sounds like a complicated question, but the answer is simple: Server Technology Intelligent PDUs are enabled right out of the box with the abilities to attach environmental probes that can precisely detail environmental conditions in your data center equipment cabinets. This information is most reliable when measured external to the devices in the cabinet.
