Raritan have designed Dominion PX, which is an advanced Power Distribution Unit (PDU), to address the power issues in data centres that include increasing power costs, limited power availability to high-density server rooms and the impact on data-centre cooling and design. The Raritan Dominion PX PDU is available from Dueltek Computer Products .
Raritan Dominion PX PDU enables IT administrators to remotely control and obtain detailed, real-time information on energy consumed by individual servers through the browser interface.
Optional humidity and temperature sensors can also be placed anywhere within a rack cabinet to monitor environmental conditions that can degrade server performance or cause equipment failure.
IT administrators can use the Raritan Dominion PX PDU to define the business power-management policies for a server or a group of servers. Power outlets can be grouped on one or across multiple Dominion PX units to support application requirements.
Administrators can also pre-define power sequencing within a server rack to prevent surge overload when all devices are turned on simultaneously. Circuit breakers, an alternative to fuses, provide easy and less expensive maintenance.
The Raritan Dominion PX PDU, available from Dueltek Computer Products, has 15 models that range from 8 to 20 outlets and is available in Zero U, 1U and 2U form factors.
The Dominion PX PDU is self-contained and does not require any additional hardware or software.
