HP’s 12-outlet Intelligent Power Distribution Units (iPDU) automatically track and monitor rack-installed devices, including blade and non-blade servers, storage, and even third-party devices for local and remote power management of high-density data center deployments. The iPDU family offers best-in-class power management and control, delivering 99 percent accuracy—for maintaining spot-on data center growth.mc1112-products-hp-300.jpg

Using power cables with embedded communication lines, the iPDU family is capable of relaying information to automatically map the power setup inside a rack directly to management software, greatly reducing the risk of human errors that are responsible for most power outages. Automatic mapping speeds configuration and allows for an accurate visual of the rack layout with power connections, advanced power monitoring, and trending to maximize resource allocation in the data center. The iPDU also includes built-in remote management with a simple and intuitive browser interface.
