Efficient RZ management with intelligent rack PDUs by Raritan Essen, April 12, 2011 given rising energy prices data center operators rely more than ever on the efficient management and saving electricity costs. Studies have shown that the consumption of the data center can be up to 25 percent of the total energy consumption in an operation with high use of IT. Distribution units (PDUs) IT infrastructure power management specialist Raritan (www.raritan.de) with offers its intelligent rack power an efficient solution. The energy management solutions of PX series include modern measurement technologies and enable an exact measurement of the power consumption in real time. Deutsche Bank research and the Green IT consulting Bureau at the BITKOM e.V. providers have in the past year and consulted users on the topic of Green IT. “Here showed that only 26 percent of the surveyed companies in green” IT projects want to invest, despite rising energy costs.
The high investment risk (43%) it deters most companies. The study recommends that each Optimization to make a detailed monitoring of energy consumption are going ahead. Made over a longer period, such as hidden energy consumption and peak loads settled even on weekends and at night reveal. Intelligent power management at rack level here offers Raritan RZ managers, facility managers and IT administrators intelligent power management solutions to monitor power consumption and supply to the rack and can be completely controlled. With the industry’s highest accuracy (ISO/IEC deviation of +/-1%) measures the iPDU PX-1000 including the consumed kilowatt hours (kWh).
Unlike similar solutions on the market, values provides in real time. The measured data provide information on the cost of power consumption, as well as the contribution to CO2 reduction key sizes for efficient energy use in the data center. The series iPDUs PX-3000, PX-4000 & PX-5000 also provide a reliable measurement and monitoring of the power supply at the circuit level via Remote access.
