Intelligent PDU, also known as smart PDU, goes beyond distributing power to IT equipment within the data centre. It is capable of monitoring, managing, and controlling power consumption to multiple devices. The intelligent PDU provides data centre professionals with remote network access to real-time critical infrastructure data to help drive informed decision making to ensure maximum availability and to meet important efficiency requirements.
While there are three main types of intelligent PDUs, metered, monitored and switched, each type has a variety of additional features that can be included to increase the critical information available from the device. Some of the key features include outlet level monitoring, environmental monitoring, alerts and alarms based on user-defined thresholds, and many more. These features minimise downtime and carry manufacturer-provided support to meet Service-Level Agreements (SLAs).
