The Power of Hyperscale Computing

By 2020, 47% of all servers sold are expected to go to hyperscale customers. For legacy hardware providers, this trend portends a narrower customer base having both a higher technical acumen and a closer attention to the bottom line, their sales to hyperscale customers increasingly captured by “no name” white box vendors who cater to giving their customers exactly what they want and no more. One server configuration no longer fits all. Open Computing is increasingly talked about as a path to lower costs and higher efficiencies.
For the hyperscale data center operators, innovations in power delivery and new approaches to cooling enable the rack power density within the hyperscale data center to increase while improving the efficiency of the overall infrastructure, resulting in extremely low PUE.

This white paper discusses what comprises a typical hyperscale data center and the role that power infrastructure plays in enabling these data centers to operate as reliably and efficiently as possible.

For hyperscale deployments, there are numerous PDU choices to be made that are driven by the following factors:

  • Costs
  • Features
  • Reliability
  • Simplicity versus flexibility

With the launch of our Build Your Own PDU (BYOPDU), the data center designer gets to balance off these factors by selecting input power, input cord location, outlet count by type (C13, C19, Cx), whether or not to use alternating phase power, color and so on to get a solution tailored to the unique requirements of the particular data center. BYOPDU introduced the versatility of our HDOT technology to the world and continues to build upon that with the revolutionary HDOT Cx outlets that support both C14 and C20 plugs.

Server Cabinet Power Distribution

The goal of our product line and the design of our manufacturing process is to allow our customers the ability to find exactly the right set of power distribution features for their application: from horizontal to vertical, 120V to 415V, low density to high, and from managed/intelligent to not.  

Intelligent Power Distribution

 Intelligent PDUs combine power distribution, power control, and data collection within a single unit. They supply more power to more devices while providing key information through PDU networking.

Flexible Power Distribution

Server Technology's HDOT Cx PDU, featuring the revolutionary Cx outlet, accommodates both C14 and C20 plugs, reducing the complexity of the PDU selection process and limits the need to purchase a new set of PDUs when equipment changes, resulting in lowering end costs.
