Almost every Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) equipment rack used to store compute, storage or network equipment requires a rack-mount Power Distribution Unit (PDU) or power strip to distribute power to equipment. But, if you are unfamiliar with electrical power distribution systems or even the differences in industry jargon, selecting a PDU or power strip can be challenging.
This white paper presents an overview of the basics of selecting rack power distribution. It covers the key questions to ask about the site, rack and equipment to help simplify the selection process for the right solution.
You'll also learn:
• What the difference between a PDU and power strip is
• Critical decisions to factor in when selecting a PDU or power strip
• How you can access additional resources, like selection and functionality comparison tools, that will help you select the appropriate PDU or power strip for your specific application.
