The new HP Intelligent Power Distribution Unit (iPDU) brings state of the art management and control to rack mounted power distribution units (PDU) to prevent over provisioning of power from restricting growth in your data center. Using the core and stick architecture of HP's Modular PDU line, the HP Intelligent PDU provides monitoring of power consumption at the core, load segment, stick, and outlet level with unmatched precision and accuracy. Remote management is built in and even provides power cycle ability of individual outlets on the Intelligent Extension Bars. HP is also the first to incorporate Intelligent Power Discovery, which combines HP iPDUs, HP Platinum power supplies, and HP Insight Control software to control and automate power distribution. When you deploy new HP ProLiant servers, HP Intelligent Power Discovery automatically discovers those servers, maps them to the power source, verifies power redundancy, and makes sure everything is hooked up correctly.
