New ways to take control over power and cooling

Today we announced a new round of HP Thermal Logic technologies embedded in HP products and services to deliver a more efficient data center. We combined measurement and control of power and cooling resources with industry-leading, energy-efficient product and solution design. Read more about our new Dynamic Power Capability, how we shaved 44 watts of the total power of a BL460c server blade and redesigned our power supplies on the BladeSystem enclosure, making us among the first companies working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to qualify servers with an ENERGY STAR® rating. New HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers are expected to meet or exceed ENERGY STAR standards by early 2009. Go to www.hp.com/go/bladesystem/news and get a guided tour from Gary Thome of today's announcements.

New ways to take control over power and cooling

Tony on the blade team has been fielding a bunch of questions on the new power supplies and he pulled together the most common Q's and A's. Hope this is helpful. When will part numbers and pricing be available? Nov 17th, if you need information before that contact your regional Product Manager Are there any enclosure changes to support the new PSU? No just needs OA V2.30 or later Will there be enclosure models that come with this PSU as standard? Yes, you can do this via CTO from November 17th. We will also create new BTO models with the HP 2400W PSU as standard, most likely in March of 2009 (all dates subject to change). Can you mix and match with HP 2400W and the existing HP 2250W? No, this is not supported. The OA will flag the Power Subsystem as degraded and you will see alarms. Will the 2250W Power Supply still be available? Yes the existing power supply will be available until at least the end of 2009. Can a customer upgrade an existing enclosure to the new HP 2400W PSU by replacing one PSU at a time? We’ve done this in the lab and it does work, but this is done at the customers own risk. The Power System will be degraded and send alerts, but it should work during the exchange. Running a mixed configuration for any length of time is not supported. Does the HP 2400W support low-line (100 – 120V)? No. Is there a way to easily identify the new PSU without unplugging it? There is a label on the hot-plug handle that says 200 – 240V. What are the specifications on the new PSU? Rated output: 2400W Rated input voltage: 200 to 240 VAC Rated input current: 13.9 A at 200 VAC 13.3 A at 208 VAC 12.6 A at 220 VAC Rated input power per power supply: 2780 VA
