Pack More Power and Equipment in Your Data Center Racks with ProGrade 42
As demands for power efficiency, low costs and higher performance continue to impact the data center, managers and operators are learning to live by the mantra, “Do more with less.” They need high-quality products for low costs and quick accessibility.
Earlier this year, PDUs Direct, a distributor of Server Technology (News - Alert) PDUs for data center environments, unveiled the ProGrade 42, a 42-outlet smart PDU that packs more power and devices into data center racks. It powers blade or traditional servers and has a middle display that can be inverted for overheard or under the floor power and next-generation locking receptacles.
The ProGrade 42 is a professional-grade product offering quality and reliability – it maintains the Server Technology quality, but at a lower cost and faster delivery rate.
Since its release, PDUs Direct has seen great success with sales and adoption. In addition to end users, colocation facilities and even major cloud CRM vendors are turning to the ProGrade 42 for flexibility in how they configure their rack equipment and increased power efficiency of equipment.
With the ProGrade 42, users can add 30 percent more devices in a cabinet than before. The number of outlets can work with many rack configurations, including high density and blades. Its mixed outlet-base allows users to plug in different kinds of equipment for varying applications.
The ProGrade 42 features:
- High density of outlets
- Narrow and shallow design
- High retention outlets and locking receptacles
- Two temperature and humidity ports on link
- 60 degree Celsius rating
- Value pricing
Server Technology also recently introduced its 48-outlet switched PDUs to meet high density needs and power more servers in data center racks. They match each U space in the rack, allowing users to match exactly to the servers and power everything in the rack with one PDU.
