Demand for Data Centers is increasing exponentially and forcing the industry as a whole to reevaluate their processes. This is most obvious in rented Data Centers and mobile Data Centers. Having said that, changes in standards are occurring at every level of the Data Center, especially in design, installation, and maintenance. Newer standards are giving those in the know a competitive edge.
One of the newest standards is using connectorized cable assemblies to distribute power from the Data Center’s UPS (uninterrupted power supply) to the PDUs (power distribution unit). Using a connectorized cable assembly streamlines the entire Data Center by decreasing costs and installation time while increasing profitability.
Read to learn how connectorized cable assemblies:
• Simplify and shorten the design phase
• Improve the Safety and Reliability
• Reduce installation time and minimize downtime

The rack power distribution unit (rack PDU) has emerged from obscurity. As the last link of the elaborate data center power chain, the traditional role of the rack PDU has been to deliver stable, reliable and adequate power to all the devices in the rack or cabinet—servers, storage, network equipment—which are plugged into it. Although it provides the electrical heartbeat to all the systems that run the critical applications that support the operation of the business (or that, in some cases, are the business); it was often considered a simple commodity, just a power strip. Typically, IT merely told facilities how much power was needed, based on device nameplate specs—and often with redundancy, so there was plenty of headroom and minimal risk of downtime. Little thought was given to efficiency or what other value a rack PDU could provide.

Increased processing needs means increased energy costs. In fact, power costs can often exceed hardware costs. Read this white paper and see how the pairing of new IBM System x and BladeCenter servers with the new Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series can reduce costs and improve performance.

As wattages increase in high-density server applications, providing redundant power becomes more challenging and costly. Traditionally, the most practical solution for distributing redundant power to 208V server racks above 5 kW has been to connect dual 3-phase rack PDUs to dual power supplies in each server. Although this approach is reliable, there is a better way. Tripp Lite has developed a patent-pending high-capacity 3-phase rack ATS specifically designed to deliver efficient, reliable redundant power to high-density clustered server environments.
This White Paper will:
• Explain the redundancy challenges for high-density server racks
• Compare traditional dual PDU and 3-phase rack ATS redundancy setups
• Outline the benefits of using a Tripp Lite 3-phase rack ATS
Power distribution units (PDUs) are vital to the management of power to IT arrays and have evolved from a simple panel of switches and outlets to designs that can now be considered "intelligent" through the inclusion of internal processing capabilities.
