Where do you mount a PDU in a server rack or enclosure?

PDUs can be mounted inside your server rack wherever you need a source of power for your equipment. You can mount them vertically along the side rails or in the back of the enclosure, or horizontally within the rack, in the same space as a server. Vertical mounting can save rack space and can utilize both the right and left side of the enclosure, while providing more outlet receptacles per unit. Horizontal mounting will take up “U” space.  You can also mount PDUs so that the power cords exit the enclosure at the top or bottom.  PDU installation is completely based on your preference, space requirements and the number of outlets required. Mapping out how you will set up your rack space before buying the equipment can save you time and money.
