PUE is nothing more than a ratio that compares a data center’s total energy consumption to the energy that is consumed by its IT equipment. In other words, it’s a way of seeing how much power your servers are using, versus your lights. The ideal PUE for a data center is 1.0, while a reading closer to 2.0 indicates that for every kilowatt of electricity consumed by the equipment, another kilowatt is needed to power the facility.

The idea that standardization benefits those of us in the data center space is neither new nor difficult to grasp. Data center standardization is a reality that directly supports the uptime goals of your organization. This applies wherever your PDU(s) are operating, like a colocation facility, corporate data center, or hyperscale complex. You may wonder, then, how PDU power factors into this equation, let alone a small receptacle tucked into a PDU at the back of a rack?

One of the identified macro trends for the data center market is the never-ending progression of new hardware technologies. Where “density” used to mean a 42U rack full of 1U servers, today’s hyperscale, hyper dense data centers may have tens, hundreds, or even thousands of nodes and cores within a single rack (or even single RU in some instances). In addition, SSDs, networking fabric, GPU processing cards, specialty FPGA and ASIC chips for AI applications are all being added at a rapid clip to the already complex stack found in most data centers.

We thought we would take a moment to talk about high density data centers, case studies, and best practices. Whether you are building a new data center, upgrading an existing one or just keeping abreast of the PDU power industry trends, it’s good policy to start with what works. What are the biggest and best companies doing to optimize their high-density computing needs and manage their power and usage data? Look no further than the experts at Server Technology for answers. With an extensive list of customers well-served by our support and product expertise, not to mention client case studies for reference and validation, Server Technology has lots to offer a customer looking to get comfortable with the notion of powering a high-density, hyperscale computing environment.
