This chapter provides detailed system specifications for the 3PAR InServ E-Class and F-Class
Storage Servers and serves as a quick reference for other relevant specifications that are
described in more detail in other chapters of this manual.
System Components and Specifications
2.1
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
2.2 3PAR InServ Storage Server Components
3PAR Utility Storage systems are based on the 3PAR InSpire architecture, a cluster-based
approach that incorporates sophisticated data management and fault tolerance technologies
that can meet the storage needs of smaller sites and can easily be scaled for global
organizations.
The 3PAR InServ E-Class and F-Class Storage Servers are comprised of the following
components:
■
Controller Nodes are high-performance, data movement engines that provide the
caching capabilities and manage the flow of data in a storage server. The E200 and F200
Storage Servers use two controller nodes while the F400 uses either a two or four node
configuration. It should be noted that the E-Class uses an earlier model of controller node
than the F-Class.
■
3PAR Storage Server Backplane works in conjunction with the controller nodes to route
data. This passive, full-mesh backplane enables high-bandwidth and low-latency internal
pathing that supersedes bus-, switch-, and even InfiniBand-based architectures.
■
Drive Chassis houses the drive cages that, in turn, contain the drive bays. Each drive bay
can accommodate a single drive magazine. These are intelligent, compact, extremely dense
storage units, where each is capable of holding a large numbers of hard disk drives in a
small rack space (EIA-standard rack units).
■
Fibre Channel Adapters and FCAL modules provide high speed routing of data and
enable granular connectivity to hosts and to the drive chassis.
■
Storage Server Service Processor provides the remote error detection and reporting
capabilities that support diagnostic and maintenance activities involving InServ Storage
Servers. In general, one service processor is required per InServ Storage Server.
NOTE: The E-Class components can be housed in either a 1 meter or 2 meter
cabinet while the F-Class components are only available in a 2 meter cabinet.
For details on third-party rack configurations, see Chapter 7, Third-Party Rack
Mounting.

3.1 Introduction
This chapter provides general recommendations for physical planning and site preparation for
installation and operation of the 3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Servers.
3.2 General Planning
Successful installation of 3PAR InServ Storage Servers requires careful planning and supervision
in collaboration with authorized 3PAR representatives. Proper planning will help provide for a
more efficient installation and greater reliability, availability, and serviceability.
3.2.1 Customer Responsibilities
When planning and preparing for the installation of 3PAR InServ Storage Servers at a customer
site, the customer assumes the following responsibilities:
■
Providing suitable space for unpacking, installing and operating the servers.
■
Maintaining the proper environmental conditions for the servers.
■
Providing adequate power facilities for the servers.
■
Supplying the network connections and external cabling required by the servers.
■
Enabling the appropriate 3PAR remote support strategy.
The customer is responsible for providing a suitable space and environment for the installation
of the InServ Storage Servers. All pre-installation activities should be scheduled and completed
before the equipment is delivered.
Electronic equipment has special packing for shipping and receives special handling during
transportation; the manufacturing environment and packing for shipping are the
responsibilities of 3PAR. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that space is available for
unpacking and installing the new equipment upon delivery.
For optimal performance at a specific location, 3PAR InServ Storage Servers require controlled
environmental conditions that can best be facilitated through raised flooring and under-floor
air conditioning. It is the customer's responsibility to monitor this environment to ensure
continued conformance with the recommended environmental specifications. Refer to
Chapter 4, Structural/Environmental Considerations for specific information concerning server
room environments.
3.2
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
Adequate power is necessary for the reliable functioning of electronic equipment and for the
safety of the customer's installation. The customer is responsible for procuring, installing, and
maintaining adequate power to the equipment. Refer to Chapter 5, Power Requirements for
input electrical power and grounding requirements.
To facilitate remote support, a telephone connection to the 3PAR can be established through
the service processor. Refer to Chapter 6, Network, Cabling and Connectivity for more
information.
3.2.2 Planning for Installation
The following are suggested site planning considerations to be completed prior to the delivery
and installation of the selected 3PAR InServ Storage Server:
■
Prepare a preliminary layout of the subsystem installation.
■
Review the power and the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) requirements.
■
Order any additional support equipment indicated by the power and HVAC review.
■
Work with the appropriate 3PAR representative to ensure that all system units in the
specified configuration and all cables of the required length have been ordered.
■
Make a final layout of the installation and review the layout with your 3PAR
representative.
■
Select key personnel and arrange for training with your 3PAR representative.
■
Verify that electrical service wiring has been installed at the server’s predetermined
location. Refer to the respective product specifications for detailed requirements.
■
Verify that any additional support equipment is properly installed and operational.
At installation time, the 3PAR representative will supervise the delivery and unpacking of the
equipment.
NOTE: No part of the installation, from unloading the crated server from the
delivery vehicle to unpacking and placement, should be performed without the
supervision of a 3PAR representative. This is a fundamental requirement for the
safety of both the equipment and personnel.
3.3
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual

3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
3.3 Shipping and Acclimatization Requirements
Safe transport of InServ Storage Servers requires the appropriate shipping containers. A
separate crate holds each storage server cabinet while drive magazine shipping containers
hold a maximum of thirty drive magazines each.
3.3.1 Shipping Requirements
3PAR recommends shipping all InServ Storage Server components through surface transport. In
the event that air transportation is necessary, a large cargo aircraft is required to accommodate
the crate height of 83 in. (210.8 cm).
In addition, the following shipping requirements must be met:
■
The storage server crate must remain upright at all times. Tip-N-Tell indicators on the crates
record mishandling during transport.
■
During transport, the storage server crate must be strapped in place with a minimum of
two straps at all times. In addition, a restraining bar is strongly recommended.
■
Drive magazine containers must be wrapped with at least two overlapping padded
blankets and strapped in place during transport.
■
Non-operating environmental specifications must be observed during transport. System
components must not exceed the non-operating altitude, temperature, temperature
gradient, and relative humidity ranges listed in Table 4-5 on page 4.14.
NOTE: Shipment of the InServ Storage Server components for third-party racks
usually contains between 10-15 boxes on a pallet. Depending on the number of
drive chassis and drives, there may be more boxes. Each box will have a label
identifying the contents. See Chapter 7, Third-Party Rack Mounting for details on
installing 3PAR InServ Storage Server components in third-party cabinets.
3.5
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
3.3.2 InServ Storage Server Cabinet Shipping Containers

3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
3.3.3 Acclimatization
InServ Storage Servers shipped or stored at extreme temperatures may require time to adjust
to operating temperatures before start-up. The maximum acceptable rate of temperature
change for a non-operating system is 18 °F/hr (10°C/hr). The storage server requires time to
acclimatize to new environmental conditions before being powered on. During that time, it is
possible to proceed with the physical installation of the storage server; however, the storage
server may need at least 24 hours to acclimatize to a new environment prior to completing the
full system installation. If condensation is present even after the 24 hour acclimatization
period, it is necessary to wait until all condensation has evaporated before completing the
power-on sequence.
3.4 Administering Management Workstations
For ease in administering the storage server, you can install the InForm Administration Tools on
one or more management workstations.
Refer to the configuration matrix for the supported operating environments for storage
system management software as well as the InForm OS Administrator’s Guide and the InForm
OS Command Line Interface Reference for additional system requirements before installing
management software.

4.1 Introduction
This chapter discusses the placement, housing and environmental considerations for 3PAR
InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Servers.
NOTE: The measurements and specifications described in this chapter are specific
for 3PAR InServ Storage Servers, but the generic information is useful when
planning installations that utilize 3PAR components in third-party racks. See
Chapter 7, Third-Party Rack Mounting for further details.
4.2 General Information
You should consider the following when choosing or designing your facilities for 3PAR InServ
Storage Servers:
■
Equipment location and layout that allows efficient use, easy maintenance, and future
expansion.
■
Facility construction that provides a suitable operating environment, sufficient power and
adequate protection from fire, contamination, or other hazards.
■
Suitable temperatures and appropriate air quality that is free from environmental
contaminants.
It is the responsibility of the customer site to maintain the room environment according to the
recommended specifications. Environmental conditions for the room and under the floor must
be maintained within the acceptable limits to prevent any adverse impact on performance and
reliability. The installation environment should be monitored on a regular basis to ensure
continued conformance to recommended environmental specifications. You may request
assistance from a 3PAR representative to help in analyzing the site location and environment
to make appropriate recommendations.
4.2
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
4.3 Establishing the Proper Foundation
As with any electronic equipment that generates heat, the 3PAR InServ Storage Servers must
be housed in a cool environment. Common techniques for maintaining an optimal operating
environment generally incorporate the use of raised flooring and alternating hot and cold
aisle layouts.
4.3.1 Benefits of Raised Floors
While not required, InServ Storage Servers can be installed on raised floors with under the
floor air cooling. Raised floors will allow cables to be located safely beneath the floor. If the
facility does not have raised floors and under the floor air cooling, temperature and airflow
must be in compliance with the recommended specifications.
The raised floor system should consist of removable panels or panels on a stringer grid system,
supported by adjustable steel pedestal assemblies. The raised floor can be constructed of steel,
aluminum, or fire-retardant wood. The purpose of the raised floor system is to:
■
Permit space between floors to supply cooled air to the equipment.
■
Support the total weight of the system and service area loading.
■
Protect interconnecting cables and power receptacles.
■
Allow for future layout changes with minimum cost.
■
Provide safety for personnel.
4.3
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
4.3.2 Raised Floor Requirements
There are additional structural considerations when installing InServ Storage Servers in
environments with raised flooring.
NOTE: This section considers a standard raised floor construction that consists of
the following: 24 in. (61 cm) square or 24 in. (61 cm) X 36 in. (91.5 cm) panels,
steel or aluminum stringers, and pedestal supports attached to an underlying
concrete slab or steel deck.
Prior to installation, verify that the raised floor at the operating site meets the specifications
described in Table 4-1.

Placing each storage server cabinet across two floor tiles is strongly recommended. It is also
strongly recommended that a vented floor tile be placed in front of each cabinet. Figure 4-1
shows two storage servers side-by-side, each resting across two floor tiles.
Vented Tiles
0206_L_R1
Figure 4-1. Adjacent Cabinets Placed Across Two Floor Panels Each (Recommended)
When necessary, a storage server can also rest across four floor tiles, with two adjacent storage
servers resting partially on the same tiles so that they use a total of six tiles, as shown in
Figure 4-2. Again, it is strongly recommended to have vented tiles in the front.
Vented Tiles
0207_L_R1
Figure 4-2. Storage Servers Resting Partially on the Same Floor Panels
However, before placing a cabinet on floor tiles shared with other cabinets or equipment, first
verify that the floor panels can tolerate the weight and pressure loads. Maximum weight and
pressure loads for storage servers are provided in Table 4-2 on page 4.6.
4.5
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
When placing cabinets with their weight shared by the same panels as shown in Figure 4-2 on
page 4.5, verify that each panel can tolerate the maximum weight per panel, calculated as
follows:
weight cabinet x + weight cabinet y
2
where cabinet x and cabinet y are cabinets or equipment resting partially on the same floor
panel.
4.3.3 Weight and Pressure Loads
Depending on the configuration, an InServ Storage Server can weigh up to 2,000 lb (907 kg).
Figure 4-2 provides maximum weights and pressure loads per leveling foot for 3PAR cabinets.
Use these values to approximate the structural support required by a storage server cabinet.

4.3.6 Additional Flooring Recommendations
Consider the following recommendations for raised floor installations:
■
The flooring should be high enough to allow under the floor routing of cables and
specified airflow to system air intakes. The recommended minimum floor clearance is
30.5 cm (12 in). An additional 3 in. (7.6 cm) should be allowed for cables and connectors. A
floor clearance of 18 in. (46 cm) is recommended for new construction.
Additional panel support may be required to restore the structural integrity of a raised
floor panel that has been cut for air opening, cable entry, and so on. Raised floors without
stringers may also require lateral support to prevent floor tile movement.
The finished floor-to-ceiling height should be a minimum of 8 ft. (2.44 m).
■
The subfloor must have adequate drainage to prevent flooding and trapping of water
beneath the raised floor. Cement should be sealed to prevent the formation of particulates.
■
To avoid an electrical hazard when using a metallic floor, no metal or conductive material
should be exposed to the walking surface.
■
Sharp edges must be eliminated on all floor cutouts where cables pass. For wood or similar
core material, all cut edges must be covered with metal or plastic clips or grommets so that
none of the core is exposed (see NFPA 75 requirements).
■
Asphalt tiles are not recommended because they produce dust that may cause equipment
malfunction.
■
Carpeting is not recommended because it produces and holds dust, and can contribute to
the buildup of electrostatic charges on people and equipment.
■
Most raised floors are composed of 24 in. (Domestic/American Standard) or 60 cm
(International/Metric) square floor tiles. The maximum panel size should not exceed 24 by
36 in. (Domestic/American Standard) or 60 by 90 cm (International/Metric). The panels
should have a flame spread rating of 15 or better when tested according to the American
Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard E 84.
■
The floor covering can contribute to a buildup of high static electrical charge. To minimize
static charge:
◆
Provide a conductive path to ground from the metallic raised floor structure through
the metallic supporting structure or separately from each tile.
◆
Ensure the maximum resistance for floor surface material is 20 gigohms, measured
between the floor surface and building ground.
4.10
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
◆
The resistance between adjacent tiles should not be less than 150 kilohms when
measured between any points on the floor, spaced 36 in. (91.5 cm) apart.
◆
Maintenance of antistatic floor covering should be performed according to supplier's
recommendations.
4.3.7 Hot-Aisle/Cold-Aisle Cooling Layout
Air flows through the InServ Storage Servers from the front to the rear, so when installing
multiple servers in the same room, consider facing each pair of servers in a front to rear
configuration. This allows cool air to be circulated through the rows in the front of the servers
and exhausted through rows in back. This is referred to as a hot-aisle/cold-aisle layout and
eliminates the direct transfer of hot exhaust air from one server into the intake air of another
as shown in Figure 4-7.

Figure 4-7. Hot-Aisle/Cold-Aisle Layout
Form rows of racks or cabinets perpendicular to air conditioners. This formation facilitates an
unobstructed flow of heated air down the aisles to the air conditioner return ducts. Heated air
must not be forced to travel over or between the cabinets to get to the air conditioner return
ducts. Doing so could heat the air in the cold aisles. Ensure that any free-standing equipment
does not allow air to flow between the hot and cold aisles.
4.11
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
A cold aisle has perforated floor tiles or grates that enable cold air to rise from the raised floor
whereas the hot aisle has no tiles or grates so that hot air and cold air do not mix. Seal cable
cutouts in both hot aisles and cold aisles to increase under the floor pressure and to eliminate
cold or hot air redirection. To further optimize the airflow in hot and cold aisles, install
blanking panels at the front of all unused cabinet spaces so that hot air does not recirculate to
the system’s cold air inlet.
4.4 Providing for Service Access
3PAR InServ Storage Server cabinets feature locking rear doors and removable side panels and
fascias to improve access while installing, cabling, and servicing components. Storage server
cabinets can be housed in two sizes (Table 4-3).

Rack Mounting for details.
4.12
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
When establishing an operating site for an InServ storage server, provide for adequate access
to cabinets by following the access area recommendations in Table 4-4.
Table 4-4. Access Area for InServ Storage Servers
Cabinet Surface

Front
30 in (76.2 cm)
Rear
30 in (76.2 cm)
NOTE: InServ Storage Servers have On/Off switches located at the rear of the
system. It is necessary to maintain access to the rear circuit breakers.
NOTE: 3PAR cabinets do not require side access during operation. However,
during installation, it is a good practice to allow 3 ft (91.4 cm) on one side of the
cabinet in case it becomes necessary to remove a side panel. For instance, access
through a side panel may be required for overhead power cable routing.
4.13
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
4.5 Meeting Environmental Conditions
For the 3PAR InServ Storage Servers, it is recommended that you maintain a controlled
environment that requires a high degree of cleanliness, close control of temperature and
humidity, and infrequent personnel access.
3PAR also recommends the installation site meet the specifications detailed in GR-63-CORE for
office vibration.
CAUTION: The storage server operating environment must be free from
continuous vibration and from dust and other environmental contaminants.
In addition, the operating site must comply with the environmental specifications in Table 4-5
on page 4.14:

4.5.1 Maintaining the Optimal Temperature
The level of cooling required for the 3PAR InServ Storage Servers is quite different from the airconditioning used in offices. Comfort air-conditioning systems are designed for the lower heat
and higher moisture generated by the human body. In contrast, equipment has high heat
output that is moisture-free (sensible heat). In comfort systems, sensible heat normally
produces 60 to 70 percent of the load, whereas the dry heat of electronic equipment produces
a sensible heat ratio of over 95 percent.
Prior to installation, verify that the operating site is equipped with a cooling system that can
support all thermal emissions. Use the maximum thermal emissions of storage server
components listed in Table 4-6 on page 4.16 to estimate the cooling requirements for an InServ
Storage Server based on a specific system configuration.
Proper site layout is critical to ensure the ambient temperature near the intake of the system
does not rise beyond the system specifications. Exceeding the maximum ambient temperature
4.15
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
for any period negatively affects the system’s reliability and performance, and continued
operation for extended periods under such conditions might actually cause the system to shut
down.
CAUTION: Heated air from nearby equipment should not exhaust into the front
of the InServ Storage Server.

* Controller nodes can only be installed in pairs.
The InServ Storage Servers can tolerate temperature and humidity fluctuations if the specified
guidelines are understood and followed. Exposure to conditions outside the specified ranges
may damage the system or its components.
Before a server is powered on, the air entering the subsystem must be clean and within the
ranges specified for temperatures and humidity. The room humidity must be kept sufficiently
low to prevent condensation on or within the subsystem, and must never exceed the limit
specified in the subsystem environmental requirements tables, including transients. The server
must never be exposed to conditions that could cause internal condensation to occur within
the subsystem.
4.16
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
The air-conditioning units should have controls monitoring under the floor output that
respond to 2° F (1° C) and 5 percent relative humidity. Humidification is normally required to
replace moisture removed during the cooling process. The relative humidity for a subsystem
equipment room should be set at 40 percent. This level is sufficient to suppress
electromagnetic charge buildup, and low enough to avoid the risk of corrosion and
condensation. To avoid air contamination from the humidifier, water treatment may be
necessary in areas with high mineral content.
4.5.2 Air Supply and Flow
The air flow capacity of the facility where the InServ Storage Servers are installed needs to be
sufficient to remove the heat generated by the equipment. In addition, the air handlers must
provide the airflow volume required by the units being cooled. To ensure this airflow, the
facility must have a positive under the floor air pressure (if the facility has raised floors). When
conditions within the computer room are changed (new units are added, the computer system
is moved) airflow checks should be made.
The amount of outside (make-up) air should be kept to the minimum needed to create a slight
positive pressure within the room, and should not exceed industry recommendations of
0.3 cubic meter/minute (10 cubic feet/minute) per person stationed in the equipment room.
While recommendations for outside air in comfort air-conditioning are 10 to 15 percent of the
airflow, the computer room environment is cleaner and operates more efficiently if outside air
is kept below 1 percent of the airflow. Cooling/heating and humidification needs are reduced,
and a minimum of contaminated building air is introduced into the installation area.
4.5.3 Air Cleanliness
Air contaminants can cause equipment malfunction and can damage InServ Storage Servers. It
is essential that steps be taken to prevent air contaminants, such as metal particles, solvent
vapors, corrosive gases, soot, airborne fibers, or salt, from entering or being generated within
the server room environment.
A high-efficiency air filter should be employed on each air inlet for outside air to stop dust at
the point of entry to the installation site. Special additional filtering is necessary where the
environment is exposed to salt air, corrosive gases, or unusual dust/dirt conditions. Electronic
equipment is sensitive to air contaminants such as:
■
Excessive amounts of soot particles.
■
Condensate particulates such as carbonates.
■
Concrete particulates from unsealed concrete.
4.17
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
■
Metal flakes or filings, such as those produced by sawing, filing, or drilling.
■
Floor-cleaning solutions with high ammonia content. Deteriorating/decomposing building
materials, including floor tiles, fabrics, sheetrock, insulation, and acoustical tiles.
■
Pollutants generated by any servicing performed in and around the computer room.
■
Paper chaff, dust, and toners from printers within the computer room.
■
Processing chemicals from reproduction equipment such as microfiche processors.
In electronic equipment, contaminants cause connector contact and motor-bearing
degradation. They also cause electrical leakage, shorting paths between integrated circuit
leads and between printed wiring traces on printed circuit boards.
Air supplied to and circulated within the server room and under the floor plenums should
ideally pass through mechanical or electrostatic filters. HVAC ducts and plenums and subfloor
areas, including cable raceway openings where used, should be kept clean. All unused cables,
hardware, and debris should be removed from the under the floor area to avoid becoming
dust/dirt traps or potential sources of rust.
During major changes in the server room environment, special considerations must be taken
into account whenever any drilling, sawing, welding, brazing, etc., is performed.
Precautions should be taken to prevent material particles (concrete or metal particles, etc.)
from becoming airborne. 3PAR InServ Servers should be powered down during construction
that requires any drilling, sawing, welding, brazing, etc. In addition, all debris must be
removed before powering up the server(s). Maximum concentrations of corrosive gases and
solvent vapors must also be considered.
4.18
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
4.5.4 Minimizing Vibration
The E-Class/F-Class Controller Chassis have been tested to operate without damage to the
system when subjected to continuous vibration per GR-63-CORE R4-56, and the storage array
has also been tested to operate error-free when subjected to continuous vibration not
exceeding 0.21grms from 5 to 500Hz.
These levels represent vibration typically encountered in a data center environment. Disk
drives, however, are particularly sensitive to vibration, and an environment with excessive
vibration can negatively affect system performance and reliability. To minimize vibration, rack
mounting above two meters is not recommended. Additionally, the rack to which the E-Class/FClass enclosures are attached should be load rated to match the equipment it houses and
should be secured to the ground and stabilized. Stacking enclosures one on top of another like
consumer Hi-Fi equipment should be avoided, as well as placing the enclosures near generators
or other large, rotating machinery.

5.1 Introduction
This chapter defines the general power requirements for the 3PAR E-Class/F-Class InServ
Storage Servers.
5.2 Powering InServ Storage Servers
The cabinets used to house the InServ Storage Server components are divided into power
domains where each contains a drive cage or controller node and two dedicated power
supplies. Drive cages and controller nodes depend on these two power supplies, located at the
rear of the system, to supply power from the Power Distribution Units (PDUs) that are located
at the bottom of the cabinet.

3PAR cabinets contain four (PDUs) and each requires service from a dedicated single-phase
200-240 VAC, 30-A grounded electrical circuit. However, for optimal reliability and data
accessibility, 3PAR recommends a redundant AC configuration that uses independent sources
to provide a dedicated, grounded electrical circuit to each PDU as shown in the following
configuration:

NOTE: If a storage server cabinet has only one Node Chassis and up to four Drive
Chassis (i.e., it does not have components installed in the top four bays (bays 0–3),
or the highest 16U of the cabinet), the two upper PDUs (PDU 0 and PDU1) are not
used to power the system and need not be connected. Redundant power is still
supplied to the lower bays in the cabinet through PDU 2 and PDU 3.
Storage server PDUs are equipped with NEMA® L6–30 or IEC 60309 connectors, depending on
the region. The appropriate receptacles or adapters are necessary at the operating site to
accommodate these connectors.
NOTE: For details on power requirements for third-party racks, see Chapter 7,
Third-Party Rack Mounting.

the storage server or to power storage server components that reside in other
cabinets.

3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
5.2.2 Power Cord Connections
3PAR InServ Storage Servers arrive with all internal power cords configured and connected.
The AC cords connect two power supplies at the rear of the controller nodes and drive chassis
to the PDUs at the bottom of the cabinet. The length of the power cord is 10 feet. The power
cords can be routed through the lower access opening at the bottom of the cabinet or the
upper access opening at the top of the cabinet (Figure 5-4). The side panels are removable for
easier cabling access.

from the top, approximately 4 feet of the cord is usable.
5.6
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
5.3 Electrical Requirements and Limitations
Before physically installing an InServ Storage Server, verify that the operating site has the
necessary electrical circuitry. Each InServ Storage Server will require 4 (200 - 240) Volt, 30 Amp
outlets or 2 outlets for 1 Meter cabinets or if only the bottom half of the 2 Meter cabinet is
occupied. For proper redundant power protection, power should be supplied from two or
more power sources.
3PAR recommends the installation site conform to the electrical specifications detailed in ANSI/
TIA-942-2005 Annex G5, specifically:
■
Use of K-rated isolation transformers, typically 480:208V/120 volt step-down transformers,
will minimize any common mode noise between electrical ground and neutral. The voltage
delta between power ground and signal ground will also be reduced. Isolation
transformers should be located as close to the load as possible.
■
Appropriate capacity Transient Voltage Surge Suppression (TVSS) devices should be
installed at each level of the facility electrical distribution system. Each distribution panel
should have its own dedicated TVSS. This multi-tiered approach has proven to be effective
at reducing electrical transients.
■
The installation site should have a comprehensive building ground system. A properly
grounded building perimeter loop should be provided and the building steel should be
bonded to the system at every other column. This building ground system should be
directly bonded to all major power distribution equipment, including all switchgear,
generators, UPS systems, transformers, etc., as well as to the telecommunications systems
and lightning protection system.
■
Installation of a UL Master-Labeled lightning protection system is recommended.
5.3.1 Power and Heat Dissipation

Table 5-2 lists current requirements for storage server components depending on voltage.
NOTE: All calculations in Table 5-2 are based on fully populated components; for
example, a fully populated E200/F200 drive chassis contains 16 disks.
Specifications are not provided for partially populated drive chassis because
different drives and magazine types have varying current requirements and can
be installed in a variety of different combinations. Therefore, only the maximum,

5.4 Power Quality
NOTE: The total system peak inrush current on system startup can vary depending
on the system configuration but is mitigated through a staggered (sequenced)
drive spin-up and by distributing the load equally unless there is a failure on a
given line.
The quality of the input power is critical to the performance and reliability of 3PAR InServ
Storage Servers. Variations in the input power can cause a power failure or malfunction. Many
of the causes of transient signals and noise on commercial power lines are difficult to locate or
are beyond the customer’s control. To reduce the impact of the irregularities, some form of
power conditioning may be needed. Please consult your electrician for assistance.
5.12
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
5.5 Voltage and Frequency Tolerance
Steady state voltage must be maintained within 10 percent of the normal rated voltage,
measured (under load) at the power input terminal of the specified server. The frequency must
be maintained at (50-60 Hz), 1 phase 50/60 +2 percent, -4 percent.
When there is a possibility of brownouts or other marginal voltage conditions, installing a
voltage monitor may be advisable.
5.6 Voltage Spikes
The 3PAR InServ Storage Servers are tested to comply with the EN 61000-45 standard.
Installing a lightning protection device on the server room power source is recommended
when the following conditions exist:
■
The primary power is supplied by an overhead power service.
■
The utility company installs lightning protectors on the primary power source.
■
The area is subject to electrical storms or an equivalent type of power surge.
5.7 Electrostatic Discharge
The InServ Storage Servers are susceptible to failure due to Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).
Electrostatic charges can accumulate on people and furniture because of direct contact with
floor coverings or movement while in contact with furniture coverings. Discharge of static
electricity to a metal surface on server cabinets can interfere with the system’s operation and
cause discomfort to anyone who comes in contact with it.
Some factors that contribute to electrostatic discharge are:
■
High-resistance floor covering.
■
Carpeting without anti-static properties.
■
Low humidity (less than 20%).
The InServ Storage Servers are tested to comply with the EN 61000-45 standard.
5.13
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
5.8 Branch Circuits
The individual panel branch circuits should be protected by suitable circuit breakers properly
rated according to manufacturer specifications and applicable codes. Each circuit breaker
should be labeled to identify the branch circuit it is controlling. The receptacle should also be
labeled. Plan on a circuit breaker maximum of 30 A per PDU (de-rated to 24 A).
5.9 Emergency Power Control
As a safety precaution, you might consider providing emergency power-off controls for
disconnecting the main service wiring that supplies the InServ Storage Servers. Install these
controls at a convenient place for the operators and next to the main exit doors of the room
after checking local electrical codes for further guidelines.
5.10 Redundant Power
The E-Class/F-Class controllers and storage arrays are designed to continue operating even
when AC power is lost to one of its supplies. For this feature to operate properly, each power
supply line cord within an enclosure must be attached to a separate branch circuit, each
controlled and protected by its own circuit breaker. Multiple outlets in a power distribution
unit or power strip do not constitute a separate branch circuit.
Additionally, each line cord must be plugged into an outlet that is capable of supporting the
entire load of its enclosure.
CAUTION: In site planning, it is critical that special consideration is given to this
requirement. Failure to do so might result in the overloading of the branch circuit
if a power supply failed, which could shut down the server components and cause

Table 5-4 lists the maximum current draw per outlet as a function of common line voltages.
The maximum load means the total load for the enclosure. When both power supplies are
working, each supply takes half the power load. In the event of a power failure, the working
supply takes the entire load.

InServ Storage Servers with 3PAR cabinets support redundant power within the system
through the use of redundant PDUs and redundant power supplies.
To support redundant power:
■
The power supplies in each power domain must connect to separate PDUs.
■
Each PDU in the system must connect to an independent AC circuit.
As shown in Figure 5-5 and Figure 5-6, power domains within the storage server are
distributed between the upper and lower halves of the cabinet.

6.1 Introduction
This chapter provides information on determining the best network configuration for the
3PAR InServ Storage Server components being installed at your site, necessary connections and
cable routing options.
NOTE: The information that follows assumes an established network and
discusses how to connect an InServ Storage Server to that network.
6.2 Planning Network Access
External Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and optional modem cable connections are completed at the
time of installation. The customer site will require two static IPs and a telephone
communication line if modem communications will be relied on for service purposes.
These external connections are necessary to:
■
Establish direct connections from the controller nodes to the host computer or computers.
■
Connect the storage server to the network, enabling storage system management through
the InForm Management Console and CLI.
■
Enable access to storage server equipment from a service processor.
■
Enable 3PAR Customer Services personnel to locally and remotely monitor and service the
storage server.
NOTE: All networking equipment, including all necessary switches, hubs, and
cables are to be provided by the customer unless otherwise indicated.
6.2.1 Supported Network Topologies
Several different network topologies can be used to connect the storage system to the local
area network, depending on operating site policies and requirements. Currently, the three
major supported topologies are shared, split, and private. However, other possible network
configurations might be available. To learn more, ask your sales and support representative.
6.2
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
NOTE: To provide redundancy and to permit online software upgrades, both
controller nodes in a single horizontal node pair (for example, nodes 0 and 1,
nodes 2 and 3, and so on) must maintain connections to the internal customer
network.
6.2.1.1 Shared Network
With a shared network topology, the storage server and service processor share the internal
customer network (Figure 6-1).

A shared topology requires:
◆
A static IP address and system name for the storage server.
◆
Two Ethernet connections from a switch or hub to the storage server controller nodes.
◆
A static IP address for the service processor.
◆
One Ethernet connection from a switch or hub to the service processor.
◆
At least one management station on the network segment.
6.3
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
6.2.1.2 Split Network
With a split network topology, the storage server is on the internal customer network, but the
storage server communicates with the service processor on a dedicated private network
segment (Figure 6-2).

Figure 6-2. Storage Server on the Local Area Network with the
Service Processor on a Private Segment (Split Topology)
NOTE: A split network topology with redundancy is only supported on systems
with four controller nodes such as the F400 Storage Server.
A split topology requires:
◆
Two static IP addresses and a system name for the storage server.
One IP address is for the LAN and the other IP address is for the private network
segment. Only one interface per network is active at any one time.
◆
Two Ethernet connections from a switch or hub to the storage server controller nodes.1
1 For an InServ with 2 nodes, it is only possible to create one Ethernet connection from a switch or hub to a
storage server controller node and one Ethernet connection from the private network segment to a controller
node. This configuration does not support redundancy.
6.4

◆
Two Ethernet connections from the private network segment to the storage server
controller nodes. 1
◆
One Ethernet connection from the private segment to the service processor.
◆

6.2.1.3 Private Network
With a private network topology, the storage server and the service processor sit on the same
private network segment on the customer local area network. All management workstations
used to administer the system must also sit on the same private network segment (Figure 6-3).

6.5
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
◆
At least one management station on the private network segment.
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that the private network segment also have a
management station to communicate with the service processor.
NOTE: When implementing Remote Copy interfaces, the service processor should
not be assigned to the same subnet.
6.3 Adapter Connections for the E-Class/F-Class Controller Nodes
There are two different types of controller nodes: one is used on the E-Class and the other is
used on F-Class servers. See E-Class Controller Node on page 6.7 and F-Class Controller Node on
page 6.8 for details.
InServ Storage Servers support the following types of modules:
■
Gigabit Ethernet adapters. For the E-Class controller node, Remote Copy using Ethernet
requires one pair of Gigabit Ethernet adapters in the primary storage server and another
pair of Gigabit Ethernet adapters in a secondary or target storage server. When required,
Gigabit Ethernet adapters should be installed in controller slot 2 for the E-Class. If
controller slot 2 on the E-Class is already used for host connections, use slot 1. The F-Class
controller node has two built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports.
■
iSCSI adapters. A PCI Host Bus Adapter (HBA) with iSCSI ports connects controller nodes to
hosts. The F-Class supports 2, 2-port iSCSI adapters per node.
■
Fibre Channel SFPs (Adapter). These adapters are used to connect to the customer FC switch
and/or hosts and connect controller nodes to drive chassis within the system. They can also
be used for Remote Copy operations. The number of ports available for the host
connection will vary based on the model and configuration. Each InServ node contains a
minimum of four Fibre Channel SFP’s; for the E-Class, there are two in PCI slot 0 for drive
chassis connections, and two in slot 3 for host or drive connections. The F-Class nodes have
the four SFP’s in slot 2.
6.6
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
6.3.1 E-Class Controller Node
As shown in Figure 6-4, for the E200 node, there are two onboard controller slots
(slots 0 and 3), which hold two Fibre Channel SFPs each.

6.5 Required Cables
The quantities and lengths of the cables required for storage server installation vary according
to the specific storage server and network configuration. Fibre Channel cables are used
externally to connect the controller node to the customer switch or host (in the case of a
directly connected host). Fibre Channel cables are used internally to connect the controller
node to the drive chassis (inter-cabinet or cabinet to cabinet).
The Fibre Channel cables provided by 3PAR have a custom strain relief feature to help maintain
the proper bend radius of the cables. For this reason, 3PAR requires that you use only Fibre
Channel cables provided by 3PAR. However, 3PAR does not provide any networking cables or
equipment such as Ethernet and modem cables.
Table 6-3 identifies the types of cables commonly required for storage server installation.

to each host server.
6.18
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
■
Each controller node supports one Ethernet connection to a switch or hub. Separate
connections from the Ethernet switch or hub to at least two controller nodes are required
to support redundancy.
With redundancy, one IP address is shared between the two connections and only one
network connection is active at a time. If the active network connection fails, the IP address
is automatically moved to the surviving network connection.
■
At a minimum, the storage server requires one Fibre Channel (or iSCSI) connection from a
host computer to a controller node. However, separate connections from each host
computer to each of the controller nodes in the storage server, with connections
distributed evenly across all nodes, are recommended.
Table 6-5 shows the maximum supported Fibre Channel cable length based on the cable size
and port speed.

6.7 Internal Cable Connections
For storage servers housed in single cabinets, internal system Fibre Channel cabling is complete
upon arrival. For multiple-cabinet configurations, the installation technician completes
connections between the controller node cabinet and the drive chassis cabinet or cabinets.
NOTE: For important exceptions to the cabling rules and guidelines described in
this section, see the InForm OS Administrator’s Guide.
NOTE: For Ethernet and Fibre Channel cables that connect the storage server to
the network and hosts, reserve approximately 7 feet (2 meters) of each cable for
internal routing within the storage server cabinet. Measure the distance between
the two cabinets and add 14 feet (4 meters) to determine the total length of cable
required.
Table 6-6 shows the typical 3PAR Fibre Channel cable lengths required for a given type of
connection:

6.9 Service Processor Connections
The Service Processor provides remote error detection and reporting and supports diagnostic
and maintenance activities for InServ Storage Servers (Figure 6-9 or Figure 6-10).

Figure 6-10. Supermicro II Service Processor with Ethernet Ports
In general, one service processor is required per InServ Storage Server. Each storage server
installed at an operating site includes a service processor that is installed in the same cabinet as
the storage server controller nodes. The data collected by the service processor is used by 3PAR
to maintain, troubleshoot, and upgrade the 3PAR equipment on the customer site. To perform
these activities, the service processor must communicate with 3PAR Central or a local service
provider. The connection between the service processor and 3PAR Central or a local service
provider can be made using the customer network and the Internet, or through a
point-to-point connection using a modem.
Connections that use the customer network pass through the customer’s firewall while
connections that use a modem bypass the customer’s firewall. When a designated
management workstation sits on the same network as the service processor (as described in
Supported Network Topologies on page 6.2) and is configured to access the service processor,
the customer has the option of blocking external communications at any time.
6.22
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
NOTE: When the service processor connects by modem, the customer is
responsible for supplying an analog phone line.
Table 6-7 summarizes the connectivity options for both data transfer and remote operations.
Data transfer involves external communications between the service processor and 3PAR or
another connection portal. Remote operations include problem solving and diagnostics
performed from a remote location. 3PAR recommends that both data transfer and remote
operations take place through the customer network when possible.

Third-Party Rack Mounting
7.1
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
7.2 Third Party Rack Mounting Considerations
Some installations may want to use third-party cabinets to house the InServ Storage Server
components supplied by 3PAR. You can choose to use a Two Post Cabinet or a Four Post
Cabinet providing that they meet the mounting requirements described in this chapter. The
cabinets must also be equipped with the appropriate power units (PDUs or power receptacles)
and have access to an adequate power source that provides the recommended level of
redundancy.
For sites choosing to mount 3PAR InServ Storage Server components in third-party racks, the
following equipment is supplied:
■
Node Chassis
■

3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
7.3.1 Rack Space Considerations
3PAR highly recommends installing node-chassis and all drive chassis in contiguous rack space.
This is especially true for the initial installation as it ensures Fibre Channel cables will reach and
provides consistency for servicing and installation. When adding additional drive chassis at a
later date, it is desirable to place them with the initial chassis, but it is not required.
While planning the site configuration, it is also important to note that the racks must
minimally accommodate equipment totalling 12U in height for the E200/F200 (16U for the
F400) with the primary dimensions shown in Figure 7-1 on page 7.3 and Figure 7-2 on page 7.4.
Your site configuration should also state which block of contiguous space within the rack you
would like the 3PAR equipment installed, such as the top, bottom or middle. Part of this
determination should be based on where your host cables are sourced. Figure 7-4 shows the
preferred configuration.

3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
7.3.2 RETMA Rail Spacing
The Radio Electronics Television Manufacturers Association (RETMA) railing is a standard of
rack spacing. An E200 and F200 node chassis requires 4U of spacing and an F400 requires 8U of
space. The drive chassis requires 3U of spacing. The actual physical height of a service processor
is 1U, but it requires 2U of spacing in the rack for servicing. See Figure 7-5 for the RETMA rack
spacing diagram.

7.4.1 Two-Post Shelf Kit
The two-post shelf kit allows for the E-Class/F-Class components to either be center or flush
mounted depending on the style of two-post rack. Center mounting is preferred, but is
required for free standing two-post racks. Flush mounting is permitted in two-post racks that
have been reinforced with wall supports.
Each enclosure requires its own mounting kit. Stacking one enclosure on top of another is not
permitted.
7.4.1.1 Center Mounting
With center mounting, two shelves are mounted on the front and back of the posts, with
adjustable mounting ears installed based on the front-to-rear depth of the posts. The
equipment is then secured to the mounting ears using screws.
7.10
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
7.4.1.2 Flush Mounting
Flush-mount shelves are mounted on the back of the posts. The equipment is placed on the
shelf and secured to the front of the rack posts using screws appropriate for your particular
rack. Flush mounting is permitted in two-post racks that have been reinforced with wall
supports.
7.4.2 Four-Post Shelf Kit
The four-post shelf kits allow the E-Class/F-Class components to be mounted in a variety of
four-post racks and rack cabinets. The shelves can either be front-and-rear mounted
(preferred) or side mounted depending on the style of rack. Each enclosure requires its own
mounting kit. Stacking one enclosure on top of another is not permitted.
7.4.2.1 Front and Rear Mounting
Four-post shelves are mounted to the front and rear rails of a four-post rack. Each side requires
two shelf halves and the corresponding mounting hardware. The shelf halves are expandable
to fit racks of different depths. Front shelf halves have left and right pieces, while the rear
shelf half can be used on either side of the rack. The E200 and F200 controllers use a 4U shelf
kit (the F400 uses an 8U kit), and drive chassis use a 3U shelf kit. For service processor
mounting, refer to the instructions included with the 3PAR Service Processor rail kit.
When both the left and right side installation is complete, the equipment can be placed on the
shelves and secured to the RETMA (Radio Electronics Television Manufacturers Association)
rails. The following figure shows the spacing standard of RETMA rails.
7.4.2.2 Side Mounting
Though front-and-rear mounting is preferred when possible, the four-post shelves can be
mounted to side rails which have RETMA-spaced #10-32 tapped holes. Each side requires two
shelf halves and the corresponding mounting hardware. The shelf halves are expandable to fit
racks of different depths. Front shelf halves have left and right pieces, while the rear shelf half
can be used on either side of the rack. The E200 and F200 controllers use a 4U shelf kit (the
F400 uses an 8U kit), and drive chassis use a 3U shelf kit. For service processor mounting, refer
to the instructions included with the 3PAR Service Processor rail kit.
Once the proper location is determined, each shelf half is mounted to the side rails of the rack.
The shelf halves are secured to the rack and to each other using pan head screws. When both
the left and right sides are complete, the equipment is placed on the shelves and secured to
the front rails.
7.11
3PAR InServ E-Class/F-Class Storage Server Physical Planning Manual
7.5 Redundant Power Requirements
Each InServ Storage Server component is supplied with redundant power supplies. The
controller nodes and drive chassis are designed to continue operating even when AC power is
lost to one of its supplies. For this feature to operate properly, each power supply line cord
within an enclosure must be attached to a separate branch circuit, each controlled and
protected by its own circuit breaker. Multiple outlets in a power distribution unit or power
strip do not constitute a separate branch circuit.
Additionally, each line cord must be plugged into an outlet that is capable of supporting the
entire load of its enclosure.
CAUTION: In site planning, it is critical that special consideration is given to this
requirement. Failure to do so might result in the overloading of the branch circuit
if a power supply failed, which could shut down the storage server and cause
similar failures in all the equipment connected to that branch circuit.
CAUTION: AC line cords should be securely attached to the customer PDU's/
outlets with cord-retention mechanisms to prevent accidental disconnection
during service activities. 3PAR provides cord retention mechanisms on 3PAR
power supplies but does not supply retention devices for connection to the
customer PDU's or outlets.
NOTE: See Chapter 5, Power Requirements for completed details on power
requirements.
