Servers in Seismic zone

Duane was looking to help a customer with Carrier-grade server info:






My customer is responding to an RFP where equipment must be rated for seismic zones.   I can’t find anything other than our rack tie downs and the Carrier grade product quickspecs which even mention this in the environmentals.  The fact that we have stabilizing/tie down kits is not detailed enough.   I did find the 10000-series white paper for rack seismic best practices.


Anyone know if we do seismic testing and where I might find that data for rack mount as well as BladeSystem server products ?

Hi Duane,


The DL360, DL380 and the c7000 have been tested and passed a Seismic Zone 4 test, when mounted in a HP Seismic (Telco) rack.


We can provide details, as required.


also **bleep** had some info: 

We also offer a Rack Tie Kit Option for the 10K G2 600MM Wide Rack that is Zone 4 Certified (one of three levels).


I have a paper on it as needed.
