Executive
Summary
Many business enterprises and service providers implement a distributed architecture for
their infrastructure, remote client access, and Web applications. In these cases,
individual applications are loaded on multiple machines creating the need to fit a large
number of density-optimized servers into existing server rooms and data centers. HP
meets this need with the density-optimized line of HP ProLiant servers, such as the
ProLiant DL360 G3 server. At a height of 1U each, up to 42 of these servers can fit in a
single HP ProLiant branded 42U rack. This server has clear space saving benefits; its
compressed size presents new challenges for rapid server deployment, cable
management, and environmental considerations.
HP engineers have developed innovations in rapid high-volume deployment and
improved cable management for large installations of these servers. This white paper
introduces planning, power and thermal considerations, server and rack requirements,
and installation configurations. It also outlines the products associated with high-volume
deployment in HP ProLiant branded rack configurations, such as keyboard, video, and
mouse infrastructure. The installation of a high-density system can place significant
demands on utility power that, if not considered and managed appropriately, can result
in downtime due to equipment failure, power main failure, or both. Power management
becomes a critical element in an enterprise system handling large volumes of data
and/or users where downtime costs can easily run into thousands of dollars per hour.
IMPORTANT: This document discusses the ProLiant DL360 G3 server primarily and the
HP ProLiant branded 9000- and 10000-series racks and related rack options
secondarily. This document does not discuss other servers, products or racks not
manufactured by HP, although the ideas presented here may be applied to third party
racks.
Note: This document discusses only HP components and solutions although the
information and ideas presented herein may be applicable to third party hardware.

Glossary
Table 1. Glossary of Power Terms
Term
Description
High Voltage
180 - 264 VAC (200-240 VAC nominal) supplied to areas where
load requirements are such that high voltage is more economical.
Common in commercial applications in North America, numerous
foreign countries also use this range as the AC appliance
standard.
Inrush Current
A high, momentary current draw occurring when power is first
applied to electrical systems. This current drain is not relative to
the power-on requirements of equipment; it is due to the
capacitive and inductive properties of components in the power
supply.
Keyboard/
Keyboard/video/mouse (KVM) peripherals. A KVM switch is an
accessory that switches a single KVM set between two or more
server units.
Video/Mouse
Ground
Leakage
Current
Residual current flow through the grounding conductor; always
undesirable. With data processing occurring at ever-increasing
speeds, most IT equipment these days includes capacitors in the
power circuits to filter radio frequency (RF) signals to ground.
While effective at filtering RF, these components tend to allow a
small amount of AC current to pass to the ground. Leakage current
is additive, so that as more equipment is connected to the AC
mains, the amount of leakage can increase.
Low Voltage
90 - 132 VAC (100-120 VAC nominal) supplied at utility outlets
in homes and offices. This is the AC appliance standard used in
North America, Latin America, and Japan.
Power Density
The amount (product) of amps and voltage provided to a system
(VA). A 120-VAC 30-amp circuit will deliver a power density of
3600 VA while a 208-VAC 30-amp circuit (single-phase) will
deliver a power density of 6240 VA.
Power
Rack-mounted component that connects directly to the building’s
Distribution Unit AC power infrastructure. The PDU typically provides circuit(PDU)
breaker protection for groups of AC outlets into which separate
AC components of the rack are plugged. Some PDU designs offer
primary/secondary switching.
Power Factor
(Pf)
An efficiency rating that indicates the amount of watts actually
consumed by a load from the volt-amperes delivered to it. The
rating is expressed as either a decimal number between 0 and 1
or percentage of the formula of dividing watts by volt-amperes. A
power factor of 1 indicates that a device receiving 1 VA is
consuming 1 watt.
Power Service
Point at where electrical power enters a building or equipment
room.

Term
Description
Volt-Ampere
(VA)
A rating of apparent power (i.e., the amount of AC power that is
available to or can be handled by utility equipment) measured
with a volt meter and an ammeter. In single-phase systems VA = E
× I, where E = volts, I = current in amperes. In three-phase
systems VA = 1.73 × E × I.
Watt (W)
A rating of true power consumed by the product and measured
with an input power meter. In single-phase systems W = E x I x pf,
where E = volts, I = current in amperes, and pf = power factor.

ProLiant DL360
G3 Server Power
Requirements
In the standard single-processor configuration, the ProLiant DL360 G3 server includes
one 325-watt power supply that can operate off high or low voltage AC power. Single
power supply units can be upgraded to a dual-power supply configuration with a
redundant power supply option kit. The power supplies are hot-pluggable, allowing live
removal and replacement.
The ProLiant DL360 G3 server uses an IEC C14-type AC plug that requires a power
cable with an IEC C13 receptacle at one end. Power cord kits that are compatible with
the physical and electrical requirements of the DL360 G3 server are available from HP
and listed later in this document.
The ProLiant DL360 G3 server power specifications are provided in the following table
using values derived from the product specification as well as the Power Calculator utility
with a server in nominal and maximum configurations.

Power
Distribution
Solutions
HP recommends using power distribution units (PDUs) in installations where a number of
server units can place serious loading demands on the AC power bus. HP offers PDUs
that provide safety and reliability to multi-server installations.
The PDUs described in this white paper offer 0U and 1U mounting options and feature
circuit-breaker protection of equipment in groups.
Figure 1 shows a PDU using the 0U rack
mounting option. This configuration may be
preferable in a high-density installation
requiring the maximum amount of vertical
space for servers and other active
components. The 0U configuration offers
the following advantages:
•
•
Saves vertical rack space for
equipment requiring more operator/
maintenance accessibility.
Easy access to power connections
Figure 1. 0U Rack Mounting Option
Modular PDU
Figure 2 shows a PDU using the 1U rack
mounting option. This configuration may be
preferable in installations where operator
or maintenance accessibility to all
components is key. The 1U configuration
offers the following advantages:
•
•
•
Easy access to all switches and circuit
beakers.
Easy viewing of circuit status LED.
Easy access for service replacement or
upgrade.
Figure 2. 1U Rack Mounting Option
The Modular PDU consists of a control core that connects to the power bus (or to a UPS)
and four extension bars that distribute power to the equipment groups. The control core
includes a 15A circuit breaker for each of the four C19-type extension bar outputs.
Available in low- and high-voltage versions, the modular PDU comes with three types of
extension bars to accommodate a variety of distribution requirements. The control core
may be rack-mounted in a 0U or 1U configuration. The extension bars include both
single-bar and double-bar mounting brackets for attachment to vertical rack supports.
Several versions of Modular PDUs are available to meet a variety of electrical
requirements as indicated in Table 3.

Console
Management
Systems
A KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) console management system enables a single
keyboard and video console to control multiple servers. An in-rack console management
system may be used to manage a single rack of servers or groups of racks. The HP IP
console switch products have 16 ports that can access up to 128 servers. The HP IP
Consoling Solution combines analog and digital technology to provide flexible,
centralized KVM control of data center servers. This solution provides enterprise
customers with a significant reduction in cable volume, secure remote access, and highperformance server KVM access. Using the IP console viewer, users can access local
KVM functions from any Windows® or Linux workstation by means of a 10/100
network connection. Alternatively, an off-rack console management system may also be
used in the local vicinity of the servers it manages.

In-Rack Local
Consoles
With an in-rack local console, all equipment, servers, switchboxes, keyboards, keyboard
drawers, and video displays are installed together in the same rack. The HP switchboxes
mount behind the keyboard drawer and do not consume extra U-space in the rack.
Using the TFT5600 RKM and an IP console switch will consume a total of 1U to
accommodate up to 128 servers. One console switchbox can support up to 16 directly
attached servers with no user blocking. Up to eight servers may be tiered or cascaded
on each switch port using either a legacy Compaq KVM switch or an Expansion
Module; however, only one user can access tiered switches or servers connected by
Expansion Modules at any one time. Critical devices requiring frequent access should be
attached directly to a switch port. Server accessibility should be assessed by the IT
manager before deployment to determine the appropriate server density per console
switch.
Table 5 outlines the number of devices that fully populate a 47U, 42U, or 36U rack with
an in-rack local console.

Planning Rack
Configurations
You must consider several important factors when planning a rack configuration:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The number of servers deployed in the rack
The number of other devices such as keyboard drawers, video displays, and console
switchboxes that support the servers
The number of PDUs and their orientation
The type of rack
The rack management system
The console management system
The remote management system
Network Interface scheme
All of these factors influence floor support requirements, future service and upgrade
requirements, and installation requirements.
Weight
Considerations
Due to the higher densities possible with today’s DL servers and ProLiant Infrastructure
products, it is now possible to configure a rack that can potentially present floor loading
issues. This is even more important when several of these enclosures are positioned in
the same row. The Ra ck/Site Installation Preparation Utility provides you with total rack
weight information that should be used to verify the floor loading remains within design
specifications.
Special
Considerations For
Compaq Branded
Racks
Use the following considerations as guidelines for the ProLiant DL360 G3 server.
WARNING: Follow these guidelines to reduce the risk of personal
injury or damage to the equipment:
•
•
•
•
Do not install a ProLiant DL360 G3 server into a rack until the
rack has been placed in its final location.
Preinstall slide rails, PDUs, power cords, and cables into the rack
in a build room or other location before moving the rack to its
final location.
Extend the leveling jacks to the floor and rest the full weight of
the rack on the jacks before installing any servers. The casters
are not designed to support the full weight of a populated rack.
Do not move a rack populated with servers. A fully populated
rack can weigh up to 771 kg (1,700 lbs). Moving a populated
rack can cause the rack to become unstable, resulting in serious
personal injury or equipment damage.
To effectively cool the ProLiant DL360 G3 server in a Compaq branded 7000-series
rack, replace the front door of the rack with the High Air Flow Rack-Door. Install the door
before deploying the servers in the rack.
Use the Rack Extension kit (P/N 154392-B21) to alleviate any space problems for cable
bundles at the rear of Compaq branded 7000-series racks.
12
HP ProLiant DL360 G3 Server High-Density Deployment
Preliminary
Rack Management
Systems
To determine the best rack management solution, consider the service and upgrade
demands of the servers deployed in the rack.
Universal Rack Rails
The ProLiant DL360 G3 server design supports deployment in many environments. The
server ships standard in a Universal Rack Rail that works in both round- and square-hole
rack cabinets. This kit includes variable length rack rails that are compatible with a
variety of third-party racks depths and will work with either round or square holes. The
Universal Rack Rail can be installed in racks that are 610 mm to 787 mm (24 in to
31 in) deep.
Sliding Rack Rails
The Sliding Rack Rails and cable management solution are conducive to in-rack servicing
and provide convenient access to the server cables and connectors. With this solution, a
server can be powered down and serviced without disconnecting the server cables or
removing the server from the rack.
The optional Sliding Rack Rails and cable management solution use the same adjustable
depth rack rail mechanism for either square- or round-hole racks. Therefore, they are
designed for HP ProLiant branded or third-party racks. The sliding rack rails compress
and snap securely in place in the rack without screws or nuts.
A steel-cable pulley operates as the cable management solution and attaches directly
onto the rear of the rack rail. It secures and routes the power, network, KVM cords, and
cables along the rear of the rack. When a server is extended from the front of the rack
for servicing, the steel cable from the cable pulley extends as well. This not only prevents
the cables from sagging and tangling, but it also enables proper air ventilation through
the rack while enabling the servers to be fully extended without disconnecting any of the
server cables.
Refer to the HP ProLiant DL360 Generation 3 Setup and Installation Guide for complete
installation instructions.
Telco Rack Solution
Many data centers use two post telecommunication (telco) racks. The ProLiant DL360 G3
server design supports deployment in telco racks. HP offers a telco rack kit designed to
install ProLiant DL360 G3 servers in telco racks. This kit includes rack rails and screws
that are compatible with a variety of telco racks. The telco rack kit includes replacement
server rails designed to fit on the server. Before deploying the servers into a telco rack,
remove the standard server rails and replace them with the telco server rails included in
the telco rack kit.

Online
Calculators
HP provides online calculator utilities that simplify the process of determining power
requirements and offer convenient “what if” calculations. These utilities, available online
at no charge, offer several advantages over “scratch pad” methods using nameplate
figures:
•
•
•
Calculations are based on formulas using actual measurements of equipment
running various exercise utilities.
Calculations are based on active components exercised at 100% duty cycle,
generally allowing headroom for typical installations.
Air volume calculations based on measurements taken in equipment operating with
an airflow chamber.
The “active answers” section of the HP webpage provides two types of online
calculators:
•
•
Power Calculator
Utility
Power Calculator – Calculates the power requirements for a single DL360 G3 server
Rack/Site Installation Preparation Utility – Calculates the power, vertical space, and
air flow/cooling requirements for a complete rack of servers.
The Power Calculator utility (Figure 5) computes the power requirements for a single
DL360 G3 server. Using drop-down menus, the user selects the number of CPUs,

HP ProLiant Model 10462 rack with 42U of mounting space
Units
42 Servers with all fixed or all sliding rails with cable trays
2 High-voltage 40 A Modular PDUs
Internal Cables
42 Standard IEC-IEC jumper cords going to and from the servers to the Extension
Bars mounted at the rear of the rack
Cables External to Rack
42 (management) network cables from the Integrated Lights-Out RJ45 connector to
external 48 port Ethernet switches with 44 10/100 ports and 4 Gigabit ports
84 (data) network cables from the on-board 10/100/1000 NICs RJ-45 connectors
to six external 24 port Gigabit Ethernet switches, assuming use of two LAN
connections per server
2 high-voltage input power cords hardwired from the PDUs to facility AC power
feeds
Site Utility Requirements (worst-case)
Power: 2 dedicated 200 V - 240 V 50 A branch circuits.
Thermal: Up to 50,414 BTUs/hour (This number is a worst-case. The actual
BTUs/hour will depend on the OS/application software running and the server
hardware configurations.)
Weight: Up to 907.18 kg (2,000 lb) (with sliding-rails) (The network cables are
not accounted for since most implementations route the network cables to the
ceiling-hung cable rails outside of the rack.)
The optional Integrated Lights-Out Advanced Pack is recommended for all console
management (local and remote) for this configuration (Figure 9). The network cables
originating from each server connect to network switches outside this rack enclosure.
The use of the Double-Bar mounting brackets for the Modular PDU is highly
recommended. This will allow the maximum number of outlets to mounted same side of
the rack enclosure as the server power supply connection.
Note: No KVM switches are used in Configuration A. The Integrated Lights-Out
Advanced Pack handles all of the local consoles. See Figure 9 for the Ethernet Cable
Diagram.

Conclusion
The load requirements of high-density server installations can be significant. Careful
planning using accurate calculations and providing overhead compensation for
peripheral devices can greatly reduce the chances for downtime due to power problems.
Completing the
Installation
To complete the installation:
1. Install side panels on the outsides of the end racks.
2. Install the front and rear doors.
3. Connect the PDUs to the power source.
4. Power up the servers.
