PDUs Direct Partners with CSC and Synnex to Distribute Server Technology Products
PDUs Direct, a global master distributor for data center and IT cabinet power distribution units (PDUs) from Server Technology (News - Alert) (News - Alert), announced it has entered into a partnership CSC (News - Alert) and Synnex, to make the buying process quicker and easier for customers.
Server Technology provides companies with power management solutions to improve uptime and energy efficiency while reducing carbon footprint and operating costs. The company makes intelligent cabinet-level power distribution units (CDUs) that set the industry-standard for quality and functionality.
“We’ve built a reputation for selling Server Technology basic, metered and select switched PDUs at a lower cost and with quicker delivery than anyone else today,” said George Holman, president of PDUs Direct, in a statement. “These new partnerships with CSC and Synnex will give us a better way to reach our customers around the world, providing them with Server Technology quality PDUs -- faster and more simply than ever before.”
Following this partnership, PDUs Direct customers will now be able to purchase the entire PDUs Direct line directly from CSC or Synnex, company officials said. This will shorten delivery times, reduce costs and make the buying process simple and easy.
“Whether it’s a very large data center or a small server closet, PDUs Direct can supply you with the right basic, metered or select switched PDU – all with the best customer service – fast and easy,” said Holman. “Adding our new distribution partners will give customers additional options on how they can buy Server Technology’s quality PDUs.”
Recently Server Technology announced a partnership with RF Code, a provider of active IT asset management and environmental monitoring solutions, to develop a rack level wire-free power monitoring solution designed for data center energy optimization.
The solution integrates Server Technology’s Smart and Switched cabinet power distribution units (CDUs) with patented Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPSTM), with or without Per Outlet Power Sensing (POPSTM) functionality, with RF Code’s active RFID hardware and management software, company officials said.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
