Data centers are in the midst of another evolutionary cycle. Emerging technologies coupled with changing environmental concerns have led to an environment of numerous moving and nonmoving parts that must cohesively work together. Unfortunately, more often than not, weaknesses are only visible during times of stress. To combat these weaknesses before high-stress situations occur, the top concerns for data center managers, as well as the potential challenges associated with emerging technologies, must be addressed.

With the rapid expansion of data centers creating highly complex IT infrastructures, it’s becoming more important than ever to find ways to increase the efficiency of day-to day operations. One of the most practical ways to achieve improved efficiency is through devices that are easy to use and easy to deploy.

Major changes in data centers operations have historically involved the location of data processing. At one time, this function was moved off-site to mainframes, but the advent of microcomputers, now known as desktops or PCs, brought data processing back to the customer’s own data center. Cloud servers and collocated data centers resulted in data processing being performed off-site once again.
Today, some organizations are using micro data centers to process data on their own premises. This solution can provide performance improvements that justify the initial expense of a data center and has the potential to gain wide acceptance in the near future.

If you’re an IT leader, you’ve probably made significant investments in data center management over the past few years. That’s because the success of the organization you serve depends heavily on the technical and economic performance of your data center. So the more digital your organization becomes, the smarter you have to be about how you manage your data center infrastructure.
Chances are, though, that you’ve focused on aggregate management of your data center as a whole. That’s good – but it will only get you so far. To fully optimize the value your business derives from its data center capex and opex, you must aggressively pursue operational excellence at the rack level.

An Intelligent Power Distribution Unit (iPDU) is a networked power distribution unit that increases the efficiencies of data centers with real-time remote power monitoring, environmental monitoring, and data center infrastructure integration. Intelligent rack PDUs deliver technologies which enables a smarter IT infrastructure so you can stay ahead of problems before they occur. They help achieve the ultimate goal of any data center manager, maintaining uptime while reducing cost.
