Hi Perry:

  We are biased as we resell these.  OpenGear on the Console servers. 
They are pretty good.  Have some nice kit.

  Switchable PDUs vary.  Some of our customers have preferences, but we 
default to APC units if they don't have preferences.  We have used the 
WTI Network Boot Bars as well (web/ssh interface) for a number of 
customers.
