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.
