How to Ensure Your Data Center’s PUE Calculation is Accurate

A key metric in determining the efficiency of your data center is power usage effectiveness (PUE). Understanding the PUE calculation – developed by The Green Grid, information consortium and global authority on resource efficiency – is essential for successful data center management. PUE calculation involves dividing the amount of energy used to power the entire data center by the amount of energy drawn by the IT equipment. Ideally, those numbers should be as close as possible to get a PUE reading that is close to 1 (meaning that all of the power is being used by the IT equipment). For [...]

3 Reasons It’s Time for an Intelligent PDU

When it comes to rack power distribution units (PDUs) you have, in general, two choices. You are probably most familiar with basic PDUs that contribute to business continuity by providing reliable power distribution to servers, storage devices, and networking equipment in your data center. The other option — intelligent power distribution units — further expand the list of PDU benefits by addressing energy consumption, the demand on circuits, and access control for cabinets and aisles. There are telltale signs that it might be time to switch from basic power distribution units to intelligent PDUs. Here are three very compelling reasons [...]
