The demand for power efficiency continues to become a key concern for improvement. Data Center Managers in North America are searching for alternative solutions to distribute electricity through their facility more effectively and efficiently. Costly and inefficient transformers used to convert 480 volt AC power to 200 – 240 volt power for sensitive IT equipment is a critical concern. Bringing 480 volt power directly into the rack will eliminate the use of transformers and vastly improve efficiency. This will reduce expensive construction and or the expansion of costly data centers while providing a reduction in monthly operational cost.
Though today’s sophisticated IT equipment and power distribution was not originally designed to use these high voltages, the new HPE 480/277 Volt solutions changes that by providing the critical infrastructure at the rack taking advantage of the higher efficiencies available from these power systems.
Do you want to efficiently manage your rack infrastructure while reducing down time? Get more insight and control with HPE Apollo Platform Manager (APM). With APM, you can see and manage HPE Apollo and Moonshot shared infrastructure, server, chassis and rack-level power from a single console. Simplify and save by avoiding additional expenses of serial concentrators, adapters, cables and switches. At the same time, gain the flexibility to meet any workload demands with dynamic and static power allocation and capping. This 1U rack solution comes with GUI and command-line interface options and is also available with the Distribution Module Kit for backward compatibility.
