Optimizing Power Distribution for Higher Density

Fueled by the rapid rise of technologies such as virtualization and blade servers, computing densities in today’s data centers are climbing dramatically. As a result, server enclosures are requiring more power than ever before. This white paper from Eaton help data center manager choose the right power distribution units for today and preparing for the future demand of high density computing.

According to a recent survey of Data Center Knowledge readers, power and cooling are one of the top three concerns in the data center. The increase of high density computing creates additional power distribution challenges. To meet the power requirements of their increasingly dense server racks, organizations are looking for power circuits and power distribution units (PDUs) that have adequate power capacity and make optimal use of panelboards, but don’t drive such high densities that they are prohibitively expensive to cool.

This white paper discusses the effectiveness of 30 amp (30A) three-phase circuits and 30A three-phase PDUs in meeting those demands compared to 20A and 50A alternatives. It also explains why utilizing 30A three-phase circuits and PDUs today positions data center operators to handle future power capacity needs.
