Imagine Lennon without McCartney. Steak without potatoes. The Giants without Buster Posey. Sometimes, things just pair together so well you can’t fathom them ever being separated. We like to think the same is true for our rack mount PDUs and our award-winning Sentry Power Manager Software. Separately, they’re still pretty incredible, but when you bring the power of these two elements together, the greatness compounds exponentially.

Let’s explore how.

Alone, our rack PDUs are powerful right out of the box. With options from metered to smart, to switched, with and without POPS, Server Technology’s PDUs are designed to maximize your uptime while keeping efficiency high, as well. Many offer individual outlet control, expansion modules, environmental monitoring, current monitoring and branch circuit protection. When you bring SPM into the mix, however, you can suddenly roll all your PDUs across all your data centers into a single bird's eye view.

Sentry Power Manager is also a time saver. Its built-in SNAP feature allows you to create templates which can push down vital system, IP and security settings to the PDU. Setting up multiple PDUs? Push settings all at once to each of your PDUs, saving countless hours of frustration and headaches. Configuration is simple with SPM.

Reporting is also a key differentiator with Sentry Power Manager. Looking for an “at-a-glance” view of everything going on in your data center? See overall system statuses, including a programmable slide show of all NOC views and open tabs. Schedule system reports for critical data on billing, carbon footprint, cabinet redundancy and total energy expenditure for a high-level view of all your cabinets and servers. Predictive trending reports will estimate temperature and power usage so you’re never caught off guard.

And, when you combine Server Technology rack mount PDUs with Sentry Power Manager, you’ll enjoy seamless integration via an API that shares power and environmental information with third-party systems such as BMS and DCIM solutions. Get details on system, location, cabinet, outlet, PDU, phase, branch and sensor information in a single pane of glass.
