Using UPS and a PDU
Posted on 2008-10-21
I have a APC SUA3000I UPS device. If i were to use a PDU within my rack, do i only connect the PDU main cable end onto one outlet on my UPS or is there another way of doing it. My reason for asking is, if i can control which server/device is switched off and also see what device is using more power, how is this controlled once i am only using ONE outlet on the UPS, in stead of one for each device being powered?
I would appreciate to know what is usually done in these situations and how people use UPS in the rack servers.
(NB. 2 of the UPS's are floor standing and not rack mount and having 8 power cables leaving the rack and attaching to the UPS i though would be a little messy - woudl apprecaite your thoughts.)
