A power distribution unit or PDU is a device, which allows the transfer of power to other electrical devices. In their simplest form, PDUs are designed to provide electrical protection and distribute power to networking equipment within server racks. Generally designed with multiple outputs to provide power to multiple devices simultaneously, they are built to save space.
More than just a glorified power board, PDUs are capable of linking all the devices to a central unit. This linking of devices allows monitoring and control of power, cooling, temperature, access control, and administration of networking equipment on a particular unit within a group of racks. Data centres in particular require the monitoring of all services within each cabinet.
