While use of vertical PDUs, or vertical rack power distribution units, has become nearly ubiquitous in today’s data center, they are not the only game in town.

Besides orientation, the most obvious difference between the two rack mount power strips is that of space – outlet space to be exact. Since the typical horizontal PDU fills 1 to 2U gaps, the number of outlets available is limited to the width of the rack, or the number of U spaces you are willing to part with.
