Vertiv introduced the Vertiv™ Geist™ UPDU universal power distribution unit, a significant reimagining of the rack PDU that allows a single unit to meet the power needs of hyperscale, colocation, enterprise and edge deployments anywhere in the world, regardless of the existing power infrastructure. The Vertiv Geist UPDU reduces the complexity of inventory management and procurement and increases the speed of deployment by simplifying product selection to a single UPDU model for installation worldwide.
All models will be available immediately as built-to-order with a lead time of as little as 3 to 5 business days. A select offering of the most common configurations will be available through the reseller distribution channel in early 2020, with models stocked locally.
The innovation behind the Vertiv Geist UPDU has its roots in work Vertiv has done as part of the Open Compute Project and complements the Vertiv strategy for more flexible and global design. With a universal design, universal input and a detachable power cable, the Vertiv Geist UPDU is compatible with AC power topologies that are common worldwide, ranging from 16A to 60A, 100V to 415V, available in single and three-phase power configurations. All models comply with international emissions, safety and regulatory requirements.
