Server Technology Expands Product Line with 34 New Products this Month
The globally renowned provider of cabinet power distribution unit (CDU) and data center power measurement and monitoring solutions Server Technology (News - Alert) announced a significant expansion in its product line with the introduction of 34 new products.
Server Technology has launched 220 new products in this year. Providing 1,900 types of rack-level CDUs, Server Technology offers the largest number of data center power products in the industry. These products, according to company officials, are designed specifically for the data center and telecommunications markets. This reflects the strong demand for custom and unique data center power innovation and technology at the server rack level, the company claimed in a press release.
“No matter what you hear, all data centers are not alike,” President of Server Technology Brandon Ewing explained in a statement. “Data center managers want their own custom solutions to solve their unique power and efficiency goals. We've listened to our customers and worked with them very closely to create these new products. They are designed with the features, power capabilities and security tools needed for data center professionals today.”
Last month, Server Technology released version 5.0 of its Sentry Power Manager (SPM) rack-level data center power monitoring solution. This upgraded version features a world-class user interface, new features and functionality and a single pane of glass view for global CDU management.
“We are really excited to be releasing even more products into the CDU marketplace. We work very closely with our customers and develop these solutions to meet their goals,” Ewing said.
For 25 years, Reno, Nev. based Server Technology has been serving the data center industry with innovative, intelligent power distribution, remote power monitoring and power management and measurement systems. The company has worldwide distribution and regional offices in the United Kingdom, Germany and Singapore.

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]
