Ensure power system availability with expert support for Vertiv Geist rPDUs
The Distribution Assurance Package combines market-leading rPDU technology with a five-year protection plan and the industry’s premier service capability.
Rack Power Distribution Units (rPDUs) are the last link in the power chain, ensuring delivery of critical power to IT loads. These critical components play a key role in data center infrastructure management, giving you access to rack-level power consumption and environmental information. Rack PDUs also allow you to directly control power to IT equipment for better capacity and power management. Having rPDUs that are properly installed and maintained is essential for critical system availability. However, your internal resources who are dealing with time and budget constraints cannot always give rPDUs the attention they need. Additionally, services that aren’t provided by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) may not be comprehensive or include the level of expertise required.
By choosing a bundled solution that combines market-leading rPDU technology with lifecycle services provided by the OEM, you simplify the management of your IT equipment.
Features and Benefits:
- Avoid potential circuit overloads with remote current metering and monitoring of connected loads.
- Power sequencing time delays allow users to define the order in which to power up or down connected equipment to avoid circuit overload.
- Remotely reboot outlets to power cycle unresponsive IT equipment or increase runtime of critical equipment upon power failure with outlet-level control.
- Reliable power distribution with local and remote power monitoring options offer quick access to critical power usage information to evaluate energy usage trends and maximize uptime.
- Environmental monitoring capabilities ensure users have critical infrastructure data at their fingertips.
- Upgrade your hot-swappable monitoring device on the fly to leverage new technologies and accommodate changing business needs without having to replace entire power strips.
- U-Lock receptacles secure power cords and avoid accidental disconnections.
- Simplify circuit and phase balancing with color-coded receptacles.
