Transparency and control across IT tacks’ power consumption

Energy consumption has become a vital consideration for anyone aiming to run an economical IT operation. In order to understand energy consumption, users need transparency and data which is why Rittal has integrated measurement functionality and detailed energy analyses within its new PDU (Power Distribution Unit) product range.

The new PDUs can be configured online to deliver high-quality power distribution quickly and easily across any IT rack according to individual requirements. This intelligent power distribution system significantly enhances Rittal’s IT infrastructure range, which includes IT cooling, monitoring, physical security and turnkey data centres, as well as cloud services. It has been estimated that data centres consume as much as 500 billion kilowatt hours of energy globally. By 2030, this demand could rise as high as 2,000 billion kilowatt hours.

In addition, it’s widely anticipated that the energy demands of individual IT systems are going to rise, driven by new technologies such as 5G networks and IoT. Measuring and streamlining power consumption is now becoming even more important for data centre operators. Rittal’s new portfolio of PDU products offers detailed energy metering within the IT rack to help cut IT operating costs in the data centre.

“Despite the many efficiency gains that have been achieved in IT so far, energy consumption is continuing to grow in many data centres. With our new range of PDUs, we are helping data centre operators to analyse energy costs precisely and to make the most of any further potential for optimising costs,” explains Luis Brücher, Vice President Product Management IT at Rittal.
