We have always used cabinet PDUs, but previously used other brands, which caused reliability issues," says Chris Wanger, CTMT data center manager.
CTMT began to notice a high rate of failure in the PDUs they were receiving, Wanger says.
This belief led CTMT to search out vendors capable of delivering high-quality products that provide unique technical advantages and solutions.
The CTMT staff researched new alternatives from numerous PDU manufacturers, with a number of evaluation units tested.
