AFAIK it can be done by "Silent" button on a front panel of your server, but every respective data-center MUST provide almost 2 PDU, so You can you plug almost 2 PSU to them. It is just a named "premium", but provided PDU can get out of order just from oxidation., etc.

That's a weird colo centre if they charge a premium for redundant power; normally they charge for power usage and that's not much more with redundant power supply than without it since about half power requirement is supplied by each PSU unless one fails.
