HP offers multiple High Output Power Supply options specifically designed for the HP c7000 BladeSystem and Superdome 2 enclosures. The c7000 enclosure can support up to six 2250W -48VDC or 2400W AC self-cooled high efficiency power supplies, while the Superdome 2 enclosure supports up to twelve 2250W -48VDC or 2400W AC self-cooled high efficiency power supplies. The power supplies for each of these systems creates a single power pool that can be accessed by any blade in the enclosure. This provides maximum flexibility when configuring the power in the system so that customers can choose the required level of redundancy. Because this power design has no zones, it facilitates both N+N and N+1 power modes, which future-proofs the enclosure for higher power requirements, if needed.
The 2400W Platinum Power Supply option provides the server industry's highest level of power efficiency for a bladed system - over 94% at peak efficiency and 89% efficiency with as little as a 10% load.
