Don’t skimp on power distribution units, Netshield a Westcon-Comstor company warns
Netshield South Africa CEO Inus Dreckmeyr has warned corporates against the false saving of buying “dumb” power distribution units (PDUs) instead of intelligent or smart PDUs.
“The basic premise behind a PDU has expanded from what they were perceived to be in the past,” says Dreckmeyr. “Originally PDUs started out as the server cabinet equivalent of the multiplugs used in our homes. Similar to the way you would wall-mount a multiplug, PDUs are mounted in the cabinets that contain computing server and networking equipment, and offer a series of power ports to provision computing equipment with electricity.”
