data center power density
by Josh Schaap
You’ve been wanting to virtualize your servers for a long time. But before you go ditching your physical machines in favor of virtualized solutions, however, stop and make sure that you’re doing it safely, and responsibly. After all, increasing server density can come with many operational and environmental risks.

If a solution doesn’t exist for your problem, we’ll innovate one, simple as that. Case in point: our High Density Outlet Technology (HDOT) PDUs didn’t exist until a client came to us looking for an innovative solution to a unique challenge. Travis Irons, Server Technology Director of Engineering, recalls the moment the idea for HDOT came to him. “About four years ago, one of our larger clients came to us with a quote for 40 to 50 different configurations of products,” Irons says. “Many of them were high density, with many outlets for the volume. With the conventional, off-the-shelf outlets everyone was using then, we couldn’t make it fit at first.”

Server Technology's High Density Outlet (HDOT) PDU is a trendsetter in PDU outlet density. But is the HDOT PDU right for your data center? Are you looking to expand your data center? If so, there’s no need to purchase a larger facility with more floor space. You can achieve better results—meaning greater power usage effectiveness (PUE) and greater energy efficiency—by increasing the density of your cabinets. What does this mean? Essentially, the process involves consolidating a greater number of assets into a smaller space using microservers and virtualization.
