Blade Power Enclosures Requirement

Hi,
We are using 2 power enclosures in single phase line. Each power enclosure is filled with 4 power supplies.
With the 2 power enclosures we ae running 3 Blade enclosures. Now we are planning to go for an additional blade enclosres using this 2 power enclosures.
Is this 2 power enclsoures are enough for the new 4th Blade enclosure??
I have connceted the service port in both the power enclosures and i have collected the report and attached for the your information.
Is my power setup is redundant????
or anyother changes i have to do ???
Is the additional 4th balde enclsore will work with this setup??

This depends on what you will be putting into your 4th enclosure. It looks like you have enough power on the existing Power Enclosures to support a 4th Blade Enclosure, but again... it depends on how much you put in. You probably will not be able to fill it. Also, you would need the scalable bus bar in order to attach the 4th enclosure.

Is my power setup is redundant????

If your Power Enclosures are connected to both rails of the bus bar AND you have the jumper between them (the PS Enclosures). then you should be "redundant". Are your "A" bus inputs on different circuits AND different power sources? Same for bus "B"?

Is the additional 4th balde enclsore will work with this setup??

If you have the scalable bus bar, it should work for a few servers at the very least.


How many blades do you have now? and how many more do you plan on putting in?

Re: Blade Power Enclosures Requirement

Thanks for the Reply.
The setup is connected with 2 mini bus bars.
Currently 24 Blade servers are installed in 3 Blade Enclsure.
The 4th enclsore also 8 Blades. So total will come 32 Blade servers.

Both the power enclosure power is with different powers.

Why my one power enclsoure showing the 6500 load and another power enclsore showoing only 1200 load????
