The advent of the cloud has changed the way data centers operate. At one time, they consisted of a more a simplistic networking infrastructure, one that relied on separate racks, targeted staff and distinct management tools to get the job done. It was a setup that worked at the time because the applications, themselves, were separate and used only local resources to run.
Today, businesses are largely Internet-dependent and that changes how things work and operate. Data centers utilize applications that work together via the web and cloud services. That shift has given birth to the hyperscale data center.

With the growing costs of power and an increased uncertainty in power availability, energy conservation has become a major concern in the data center. Increases in the demand of computing power to satisfy mission-critical applications along with the emergence of virtualization have had major effects on server density, making the need for an efficient energy management plan even more important. When using Raritan’s PX PDUs, with the detailed knowledge of energy consumption gained from real-time monitoring within the data center, administrators can feel secure that they are making better, more energy conscious decisions.
