Re: what happen if SERVER DL380 G6 turn on always ?

The servers are designed to be always on. As long as the environmental requirements (temperature, humidity, power quality) are satisfied, the server will run just fine.

Keeping the server always on will minimize thermal stress, so your server is likely to last a bit longer that way. It's also nice to be able to make backups, disk defragmentation (if required by your system) and other maintenance actions run automatically at night, so they won't interfere with business at daytime.

But if you know there's a significant risk of abrupt shutdowns at night (e.g. power outages, or power quality problems), then shutting down in a controlled fashion every night might be safer than taking the risk of filesystem and/or hardware damage.
