Consideration of physical threats to data centres is essential – along with cybersecurity – to securing critical infrastructures. This applies right down to the rack level.
The Dual SmartPDU combines two PDUs in one housing and is therefore particularly cost- and space-saving. All the advantages of two separate PDUs with separate feed and intelligent monitoring are retained.
Minimising physical threats in the rack – New SmartPDU is an all-in-one solution for securing server cabinets
- Kentix’s new SmartPDU enables seamless monitoring of the power supply, environment including early fire detection and rack closure
- Calculation of Power Usage Effectiveness possible without using external software
- Kentix CEO: “The integrated residual current monitoring contributes to higher electrical safety as well as increased fire protection.”
Idar-Oberstein, 16.12.2020 +++ Kentix, the specialist for holistic and scalable IoT solutions to protect business-critical infrastructures, releases the SmartPDU as the latest offshoot of its PDU series. Kentix thus offers a scalable all-in-one system solution for seamless monitoring of power, environment with early fire detection and rack closure. As a central control element, the modular PDU takes over the redundant complete monitoring of all important parameters in the server cabinet. Required function extensions can either be mapped via hardware modules or enabled in the software, whereby the concept takes several speech levels into account. In addition to the single PDUs, the series also includes dual variants with 40 U (vertical) or 2 U (horizontal). These offer an all-round security package to meet ISO 27001 requirements, especially for applications in edge computing.
The Kentix SmartPDU is much more than a simple power connector. It serves as a system component in the rack that can simultaneously control environmental monitoring and access to your server rack.
Security in accordance with Technical Security Management (TSM) requirements and ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27019 standards.
