Data centers require a lot of power, and consumption will continue to rise as new applications and technology demand more power and cooling. With such high consumption levels, power distribution must be managed at a granular level that can’t be always provided by off-the-shelf solutions. That’s why many data center and telecom operators are turning to custom solutions when designing the layout, power density, cooling and connectivity of their facilities.
This white paper from Server Technology explores how the drive for efficiency and sustainability, and even the integration of renewable energy sources, is changing the the way data center operators are thinking about power distribution. The author looks at how off-the-shelf and semi-custom solutions are no longer sufficient for HPC installations, hyperscale data centers and others.
In the paper, you’ll learn how artificial intelligence and edge computing provide design challenges for the deployment of power distribution units (PDUs), and how a customized solution can overcome those challenges.
