This session defines basic power terms and how they relate to each other in a mission critical building. You'll learn about power consumption values in IT specifications and how they should be applied to DC facilities planning; variables influencing power consumption; and rack PDU and its limitations. The presentation concludes with a walk-through of a detailed placement of IT equipment on rack PDUs.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review basic power terms and power consumption values
2. Analyze variables that influence power consumption when IT equipment is in operation
