rackmount managed PDUs
As much as I hate to tear people away from the Intercage/Atrivo debacle and semi-tangential rants, I'll take one for the team and do it :)
I have an opportunity coming up to rebuild an existing machine room space to an extent. It's not a total gut-and-refit, but I'll at least get to put in some new infrastructure. That said, I'd be interested in hearing about peoples' experiences with various rackmountable managed PDUs.
I have some Tripp Lite PDUMH30NETs that work well and are reasonably priced, but they have a few quirks (no RS-232 console port, web interface seems to be a little shaky with Firefox, etc) that would become more annoying when scaled up to several rows of new rack footprints. I'm also open to using managed vertically mounted PDUs. The plan is for each footprint to have "A" and B" feeds, so two PDUMH30NETs would take up 4U per footprint, which is a bit much...
I don't need to worry about distributing DC power - just AC.
This site will be lights-out most of the time, so robust remote management capabilities are a must.
Any thoughts/insight are greatly appreciated.
