Server Technology Launches Over 289 Data Center Power Distribution Products to Date this Year
If you thought it was already impressive that the company has released 220 products this year alone, how about the fact that it has now launched over 289 new data center power distribution products to date this year and introduced 69 new products since July?
Server Technology, a company that specializes in producing the highest quality rack mount power distribution units and power monitoring solutions, announced this week the launch of 69 new customer-inspired cabinet power distribution units (PDUs), bringing the total new products released in 2011 to over 289, reflecting the strong demand for unique custom data center power products using Server Technology’s Quality Power Architecture (QPA) technology at the server rack level, according to company officials.
“There’s a lot of talk about standardization in data centers today, but we know from our day-to-day customer interaction that all data centers are not alike,” said Brandon Ewing, president of Server Technology. “Data center managers want situation specific solutions to solve their unique power and efficiency goals.”
“Customers know that we provide the deep power expertise, the highest product quality and reliability, the configuration flexibility and the fast turnaround that data center professionals need to react to their ever-changing environments,” he added. “With this in mind, we created Server Tech’s unique Quality Power Architecture, allowing us to quickly develop situation-specific devices with the same quality, reliability and production processes found in all of our products,” said Ewing.”
The latest products released by Server Technology speak to customers’ needs for a solution to limited space for PDUs. Currently, customers are installing more dense racks with little space for PDUs and these higher voltage and higher amperage solutions are well-equipped to work in these dense environments.
The company also introduced a new wave of products featuring Server Technology’s in-demand Per Inlet Power Sensing (PIPSTM) technology, providing the world’s most accurate power consumption measurement available for the data center, according to company officials.
“Customers know that there are traditionally several other places where you could measure power in a data center – at the Utility Meter, the UPS or the remote power panel (RPP) for example, but those measurements are much farther away from the actual loads and much less granular and accurate,” Ewing said. “The benefit of using our PIPS technology is that you are getting actionable data from within the rack itself from a point which is the next closest device to the IT gear.”
“We simply do a better job listening to our customers for guidance in our R&D efforts,” he added. “With dense computing becoming commonplace these days, including high capacity chassis from Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), HP (NYSE:HPQ), IBM (News - Alert) (NYSE:IBM) and others, Server Technology continues to deliver products that are intended for dense mission-critical application by design.”
