It’s no secret that data centers can be massive drains on the power grid. In fact, data centers consume about 3 percent of total global energy production.
Something needs to be done about this situation; however, it will likely only grow worse as the world approaches 5G connectivity and as more companies embrace the growing Internet of Things (IoT) for getting work done. While IoT technology will be very profitable and convenient, it’s also going to tax the power grid like never before. Thus, greater power consumption will also produce more costly power outages and, subsequently, greater strain on corporate budgets.
What data center managers need is a compromise—that is, a solution that will give them the throughput they are looking for without the guilt that comes along with using enough energy as a small city consumes.
Server Technology’s new High Density Outlet Technology (HDOT Switched) is one product that can help overcome this challenge.
HDOT Switched is a data center power distribution unit (PDU) like you’ve never seen before. The solution combines three-phase power distribution with flexible PRO2 architecture and up to 40 outlets in a single unit. In effect, the technology allows data center managers to use more power through its three phase architecture by re-using power that would be otherwise distributed into the ground. At the same time, it also allows for the ongoing monitoring of volts, watts, amps and more by using built in PIPs sensors along every outlet.
