Electricity is the single most important resource in a data center, as it’s needed for powering every system — from the servers on the floor to the lights overhead.Read More
How do you balance the electrical needs of a cabinet of equipment with available technology? Many data center facilities have come to rely on a standard rack PDU configuration fed by 3-phase, 30A circuits running at 208V. This setup can yield approximately 8 kW to feed your power-hungry IT gear.Read More
