I am refitting the racks in our data center with new vertical power strips. I have about 39" - 41" of vertical space.
I've been looking at the CyberPower PDU20BV16F (16 outlet 20A max) power strips, which will cost me about $200 per strip. but i was hoping to find an inexpensive alternative that could serve the purpose just as well.
i'm ok with not having any reporting or alerting mechanism in the strips.
Thank you for the suggestion. our data center does not require 30A per rack as of now. but i'm guessing it is better to have a foresight in these matters. but i'm not sure if $150 per PDU is something we can afford at this point. Do you know of another brand that could come in handy?
tripplite is a brand that i have already looked into. they do not have as many outlets as i require.
have you tried Tripplite PDUMV20? we use that in our data center and i find they serve the purpose. they are cheap too. they also have a somewhat accurate display of the current usage as well.
Probably your best deal. These are $104 from Amazon, so if you shop around you might be able to do a bit better. Frankly, I wouldn't want my servers plugged into the absolute cheapest power strip I could find.
We currently use the following model APC 2 AP7863 APC. It has an awesome web based management.
