A power distribution unit, or PDU, can give a government agency or educational institution the ability to manage its power usage without overhauling their data center or network infrastructure. Basic and advanced PDU power strips are available based upon the needs of the agency. There are also... metered, switched, and network power distribution units available for larger organizations and their campuses. Metered PDUs will display the total power being used on the outlet groups. Switched PDUs allow an operator to switch control between systems in order to conserve and organize energy. Network PDUs allow an operator to monitor different aspects of the network from a single hub so that they can spot trouble—such as over usage, system malfunction, and more.
Connection carries many types of PDUs from many different sources. APC, Cyberpower, Eaton, HP, Raritan, Server Technology and Tripp Lite are some of the most well-known power distribution unit manufacturers. For the sake of reliability, it’s best to stay with a trusted name—especially with an item as important as a power distribution unit.
For a government or educational organization that operates on a strict budget, the dissemination of power is an important element of daily office life. With the right type of power distribution unit in the office, agencies can always monitor the power that is being used, redirect it to the resources that need it the most, and control its usage painlessly. Thanks to this kind of ability from a cost-effective accessory, agencies can use their budgets in a more effective way.
