The global data center rack power distribution (PDU) market will continue to boom, according to a new report by Grand View Research.
By 2025, the market is expected to reach a value of USD $2.04 billion. In the data center environment, a rack PDU aids in supporting power to server racks. A key instigator of this market growth is the rising need for reliable power solutions.
The report states that in recent years, many data centers have faced power outages, leading to disruption in business operations. This also leads operators to instal redundant power units in their data centers to ensure higher availability.
Moreover, the report explains that the increasing espousal of cloud-based services has encouraged cloud based service providers to renovate their data center facilities and build new facilities, driving the data center PDU market.
According to the report, organizations are focusing on the procurement of solutions that increase energy efficiency and manage power consumption, owing to the increase in power usage.
PDU manufacturers can offer these solutions. Solutions with monitoring capabilities to control power consumption work to ensure a better usage of resources.
In addition to decreasing power usage and increasing the efficiency of a data center, the report expects the solution to help reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint.
Overall, key findings from the report suggest:
