Hot Swap Redundant Power Supply

Hot plugging is the ability to replace or install a system component without shutting down the attached rack or server. Hot pluggable power supply units (PSUs) can be removed and installed while the server is running without affecting the rest of the server’s capabilities. Hot plugging or hot swapping gets its name because devices are swapped while a computer is running - or hot. Sometimes known as a dual redundant power supply, Artesyn Embedded Power, an Advanced Energy company, provides line-up of hot swap redundant power supply for enterprise servers, storage servers, network computers and other computing appliances.
