Both PDUs and standard household power strips are designed for splitting and distributing power to multiple attached devices. They both have multiple electric power outlets and an inlet with a power cord. What are the actual differences between these two power devices? Which one is better, more stable and reliable? Can we apply standard power strips to racks in server rooms or data centers?
A Dual Feed PDU is an advanced rack PDU designed to house two PDUs together in a single chassis. The two PDUs feature the same configuration but different colors. The benefit of such a design is that you can find ‘duplicated’ PDU outlet groups and two power feeds in a single PDU.
A rack unit, also known as “U”, “RU”, or “RMU”, was created by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA); it is the standardized unit of measurement in IT rack enclosures. 1U rack unit refers to 1.75 inches or 44.45 mm of vertical space. The most common rack sizes are 42U & 45U, and for high density equipment you can find racks up to 47U & 52U.
Bitcoin & other cryptocurrency transactions decentralize the work of verifying transactions, and rely on users to assist each other in verification. To take part in verifying a transaction, your computer “node” must solve a series of complex cryptographic problems.
