New White Paper: Considerations for Intelligent Power Management within High-Density Deployments

(Power Management) Permanent link

Intelligent Power White PaperChatsworth Products (CPI) recently published a new white paper that not only presents six key considerations for deploying intelligent power distribution units (PDUs) in high-density cabinets, but also demonstrates the management of cost and security associated with the deployment of the PDUs.

Authored by Ashish Moondra, CPI Sr. Product Manager of Power, Electronics & Software, the paper examines how virtualization and equipment consolidation are causing rack power densities to be constantly rising. While an average cabinet supported 3 - 4 kW a few years ago, today that power load is considered in low-density environments. It is not uncommon to have cabinets drawing 9 - 15 kW and in several cases, higher than that.


With the rise in processing being done at every cabinet, strong attention needs to be paid to the cabinet power distribution strategy so that the highest levels of availability and efficiency are achieved with minimum management overhead.

To ensure highly available power to IT equipment, all power components in the power chain need to have monitoring capabilities. Rack PDUs represent the last leg of the power chain. Therefore, it is critical that organizations choose rack PDUs with monitoring capabilities for high-density deployments.
